In the 2010 study of Global Brands, Zurich holds the position of 94 most valuable brand in the world with an estimated brand value* of USD 3.49 billion.
Arun Sinha, Zurich’s Chief Marketing Officer, said: "It is a great honor for Zurich to be part of the global most recognized 100 brands ranked by Interbrand. The first ever inclusion in this prestigious ranking reflects Zurich’s appeal and our commitment to deliver when it matters most for our customers.

* Brand value was determined using the method Interbrand pioneered more than 20 years ago and has since used this approach in over 5,000 brand valuations worldwide. Brand value is calculated as the net present value of the earnings the brand asset is expected to generate and secure in the future. To be considered for the Best Global Brands ranking, brands must have a minimum brand value of USD 3 billion, achieve at least one-third of their earnings outside of their home country, have publicly available marketing and financial data, and have a wider public profile beyond their direct customer base in all main global markets.
