The first step: Following the acquisition of a small insurance company in western Switzerland, ARAG acquired Schutz AG in Zurich. Schutz AG became ARAG Switzerland just one year later.

Growth and development
Over the course of the following years, ARAG Switzerland not only expanded its insurance portfolio but changed its name as well. Majority interest in ARAG Switzerland was transferred to the ARAG Group in 1992. In 1998, ARAG transferred the majority interest in the Swiss company to Winterthur-Rechtsschutz. This merger has created “Winterthur-ARAG“. In 2007, Winterthur-ARAG then merged with “Juridica", the legal insurance division of “Axa Schweiz”. In 2010, AXA-ARAG Rechtsschutz AG was incorporated in Switzerland.

AXA-ARAG in Switzerland today
AXA-ARAG is now a subsidiary of AXA Schweiz and the leading provider in the Swiss legal insurance market since 2009. Aside from its headquarters in Zurich, the company is also represented with offices in other major Swiss cities.
