Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: AMICE is the strong, united voice of the mutual and cooperative insurance sector in Europe. It was created in January 2008 through the merger of two previously existing associations, ACME and AISAM.

Its prime purpose is to ensure that the voice of the mutual and cooperative insurance sector in Europe is heard and that the interest of its members are taken into account in securing a level playing field for all insurers in Europe regardless of their legal form.

AMICE provides a platform for mutual and cooperative insurers of all sizes to combine resources and expertise, exchange experiences across national borders and discuss key issues and concerns relating to planned legislative and regulatory changes and developments.

The sector accounts for 60% of all insurance undertakings in Europe and some 28% of premiums. with more than 100 direct members and 1.000 additional mutuals represented in AMICE through their national associations, AMICE speaks for a significant part of the insurance sector.
