UBS Ties up With Baloise to Offer Proptech Solutions for Swiss Property Owners

by July 8, 2021

Swiss insurance holding company Baloise and UBS, with its mortgage brokerage platforms Atrium and key4, plans to enter into a strategic partnership in order to provide innovative solutions and services to property owners in Switzerland.

The aim of this strategic relationship is to give customers access to complementary services that address property owners’ key needs regarding financing, insurance and maintenance.

The project means further progress for Baloise in the expansion of its service portfolio and partnerships in the Home and Mobility ecosystems under the Simply Safe strategy.

This move combines the two partners’ core competences and services and their respective digital offerings to create a shared customer journey.

The new joint Home & Living ecosystem will be designed to cover customer needs at all stages of the value chain.

It will be based on the established UBS platforms Atrium and key4, Baloise’s Home initiatives, existing and prospective equity investments of both companies and potential further partnerships with third parties.

In addition to the two companies’ existing cooperation on mortgage brokerage for investment properties, Baloise wants to further expand its mortgage offering through this strategic partnership.
