Mutuals in Europe: Who they are, What they do and why they matter
AIM, together with AMICE (Association of Mutual Insurers and Insurance Cooperatives in Europe), released a communication document based on a detailed study published by the European Commission entitled: Study on the current situation and prospects of mutuals in Europe.
The 600 page study, published in 2012, gives a detailed insight of the specificities, activities and challenges of mutuals throughout Europe. It notably acknowledges that 95% of all European mutuals share the same core principles of solidarity, democracy and non-profitability. Being very detailed and technical, the study is not a bedtime reading. That’s why AIM and AMICE decided to summarize it in a short and reader friendly document that explains simply what mutuals are and what challenges they currently face.
