AMICE Congress

Dear visitor,

AMICE’s 2018 Congress, our sixth since AMICE’s creation in 2008, will be held in Stockholm from 3 to 5 June at the invitation of two AMICE members, Folksam and Länsförsäkringar.

The theme of our sixth biennial conference will be “Mutual connections”, in which we will be highlighting the connections between mutual/cooperative insurers and their members/policyholders, their work forces and wider society. We will also be considering the connections with the European institutions and between Europe and its citizens, where the mutual/cooperative insurance sector provides security to more than 400 million members/policyholders. Speakers will include European policymakers, external experts and AMICE members, making for a diverse and exciting programme.

This Congress will be my first as AMICE President and I am sure that it will be a great success thanks to our hosts – but primarily thanks to your presence!

I look forward to welcoming you to the delightful city of Stockholm in June!

President, AMICE and CEO, TUW SKOK, Poland

Dear friends,

It is with great pride and pleasure that we invite you to Sweden and the beautiful city of Stockholm for the sixth AMICE Congress!

In June 2018, Stockholm will be the place to be for all European mutual and cooperative insurers: the place to gather with your peers to discuss business issues, to debate current affairs with European policymakers, to interact with experts, and also simply to enjoy the renowned Swedish hospitality during the social activities.

As CEO’s of the Folksam Group and Länsförsäkringar, we are both very pleased to invite our fellow mutual and cooperative insurers and those interested in our sector to Stockholm.

The Folksam Group consists of 2 groups, 10 insurance companies and SEK 50 billion in premium volume and SEK 400 billion in assets under management in 2016. We have four million customers and 4,000 employees and we offer all categories of insurance.

Länsförsäkringar’s mission dates back more than 200 years. 23 independent and local customer-owned regional insurance companies work together under a joint brand to offer secure banking, insurance and real-estate brokerage solutions close to our customers. We cooperate through Länsförsäkringar AB, which serves as the hub of the Länsförsäkringar Alliance. The Länsförsäkringar Alliance jointly has 3.8 million customers and 6,200 employees.

We are convinced that this Congress will be a great occasion to boost your mutual appetite and fitness! However, it will only be a success if many of you join us!

We hope to see many of you in Stockholm in June.

AMICE (Association of Mutual Insurers and Insurance Cooperatives in Europe) is the voice of the mutual and cooperative insurance sector in Europe. The Brussels-based association advocates for appropriate and fair treatment of all mutual and cooperatives insurers in a European Single Market. It also encourages the creation and development of innovative solutions for the benefit of European citizens and society. 

Mutual and cooperative insurance follows the principles of solidarity and sustainability, and is characterised by customer-membership and a democratic governance. The mutual business model, with its focus on using surpluses for the benefit of its members, is the natural way to provide insurance. 

The close to 3,000 EU insurers united in the mutual and cooperative sector account for more than half of all insurance undertakings and for a market share of more than 32%. They provide cover for more than 400 million members/policyholders and employ nearly 440,000 staff.
