Swiss Re announced that the company has become a Supporting Member of the International Cooperative and Mutual Insurance Federation (ICMIF), the global representative body of the cooperative and mutual insurance sector.
Through the new partnership, Swiss Re will provide ICMIF with the knowledge, expertise and support for risk management, as well as collaborating with ICMIF to close the protection gaps and strengthen the social resilience around the globe.
Shaun TARBUCK, ICMIF Chief Executive, commented:
“On behalf of ICMIF, our Board of Directors and our 200-member organizations, I am delighted to welcome Swiss Re, one of the world’s leading (re)insurance providers, as a member of the Federation. ICMIF has previously contributed to Swiss Re’s sigma research into the cooperative/mutual insurance sector, and for many years, we have based the global insurance figures quoted in ICMIF’s Global Mutual Market Share report on Swiss Re’s research. (…) This new relationship between ICMIF and Swiss Re presents an exciting opportunity to further develop our partnership and bring additional added value to our members around the world.”
