AMICE Secretary General Sarah Goddard speaks during the recent FS Club webinar ‘Passion and Purpose: What EU Insurance Mutual and Cooperatives have been doing well during COVID-19’.

 

Mutual and cooperative insurers are responsible for one-third of all insurance premiums in Europe. Their status belies their size: they range from some of the smallest to some of the largest European insurers, and with no external shareholders to satisfy, they are able to apply their profits to the benefit of their policyholders. As major stakeholders in the social economy and with strong ties to local markets, mutual and cooperative insurers responded quickly to the COVID-19 crisis to help their customers and wider society. Working often under the radar, the mutuals are continuing to provide support in all sorts of ways to boost resilience for people, businesses and economies across Europe.
