Zurich, April 23, 2008 - Zurich Financial Services Group (Zurich) announced
today that Zurich Global Corporate's Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) unit has
expanded its operation through the opening of an office in London. As announced
on July 18, 2007, Zurich Global Corporate has established a dedicated M&A unit
to analyze needs and offer customized solutions for customers going through a
merger or acquisition or divestiture.

Thomas L. Gamble, president of Global Corporate's M&A unit, said: 'We now have a
fully operational M&A and private equity team in London, with a broad capability
to deliver global and local M&A insurance solutions utilising Zurich's global
network.  The London office is led by a management team with M&A industry
specialists on board. Zurich is now in a strengthened position to deliver a
broad spectrum of tailored insurance products and risk management solutions that
meet our customers and brokers M&A and private equity transactional needs.'

The risk services offered by Zurich's M&A experts and product specialists are
enhanced by a global network, an extensive product breadth and a commitment to
customer relationship management allowing Zurich to both deliver relevant risk
insights for every step in the M&A transaction and provide customers with
answers to risk issues which may otherwise hinder deal completion.

Mario Vitale, CEO, Zurich Global Corporate in North America said: 'With the
creation of the unit, Zurich is the only insurer to offer a fully integrated and
fully dedicated team of professionals with expertise in a broad range of
insurance products and all aspects of the M&A process.'

The total value of M&A deals in 2006 and 2007 reached an all-time high of
approximately USD 4 trillion and USD 4.9 trillion respectively. Year to date
global M&A activity has totalled USD 861.2 billion, with an increase of activity
in Asia and other markets.* Although the size and volume of transactions has
diminished in the US and UK, Zurich's M&A unit is poised to continue to deliver
tailored risk solutions that meet M&A, divestiture and private equity
transactional requirements. Demonstrating its commitment to capturing a
significant share of the insurance activity, Zurich's M&A unit will be
dedicating resources to serve Asia, the Middle East as well as Latin America
towards the end of this year.
