Covering earthquakes for Switzerland's mortgage lenders
Despite the country’s exposure to seismic risk, only few Swiss homeowners take out earthquake insurance. In fact, over three quarters of private buildings in Switzerland have no earthquake coverage. If an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.2 strikes in central Switzerland, not all homeowners will be able to absorb the resulting financial loss and some may end up defaulting on their mortgage.
