Aggregate Limit

In insurance, the term “aggregate limit” denotes the maximum liability which an insurance provider will accept during a given period or for a specific policy.

For example, an insurance policy may have a sum insured of CHF 100,000 per incident, and an aggregate limit of CHF 200,000 per year. If you had 3 incidents in a year, each of which cost you CHF 100,000, your insurance company will only cover up to CHF 200,000 for all claims in that one year, instead of the CHF 300,000 which the sum insured would lead you to believe.
