Swiss Life supports very small enterprises and the self-employed also with rent reductions

Swiss Life is taking a step further in its individual support for commercial tenants: in addition to deferred rental payments, very small enterprises and the self-employed in Switzerland who are particularly affected by the measures taken by the Federal Council in response to the corona crisis, are being granted a rent reduction.

The corona crisis poses an existential threat to many very small enterprises and self-employed people. Swiss Life is responding to that and expanding its individual support measures for business in Switzerland: in addition to deferring rental payments, very small enterprises and the self-employed who are particularly affected by the Federal Council's measures to overcome the corona crisis, will be granted rent reductions on an individual basis.

"A team of specialists will ensure that the measure benefits those professionals who also really need this assistance," says Stefan Mächler, Chief Investment Officer of Swiss Life. "So far we have already been able to offer effective support to affected tenants by offering to defer rental payments. By offering very small enterprises the chance to apply for temporary exemption from rent, we hope to make a further contribution to overcoming the crisis."
