UNIQA Österreich Versicherungen AG
In 2016, the four primary insurers previously operating in Austria were merged into one company. Versicherungsgesellschaften FinanceLife Lebensversicherung AG, Raiffeisen Versicherung AG and Salzburger Landes-Versicherung AG were merged with UNIQA Österreich Versicherungen AG as the acquiring entity. The merger was entered in the Commercial Register on 1 October 2016.
As a result, UNIQA Österreich Versicherungen AG, wholly owned by UNIQA Insurance Group AG, has been the only primary insurer of the Group on the Austrian market since 1 October 2016. The insurance portfolios of the previous four companies were concentrated in UNIQA Österreich Versicherungen AG.

The company’s service focus and customer proximity are underscored by its nine regional headquarters and more than 420 service centres.
UNIQA Österreich manages all categories of personal and property insurance. Its products are offered through exclusive marketing, brokers, general agencies and online sales.
According to independent studies, UNIQA has been the best-known and most trusted insurance brand in Austria for several years.
