Industry expansion, technological developments and changing customer behaviour... these kinds of changes require an insurance chain in which we work together and share knowledge in a different way.
The Dutch Association of Insurers facilitates an open platform: members, associate partners and stakeholders within and outside the insurance sector meet. Through mutual cooperation and knowledge sharing, we create added value for customers. This can be done on all kinds of themes: climate, pensions, housing market, disability, mobility, safety.
We invite every organization that wants to achieve this goal together with us to talk to us. Are you not an insurer but are you active in the value chain of insurers? Can you contribute to the customer's interest? Then the association partnership for your organization is open.
What do we offer you?
In the cooperation between the Association and the associate partner is about creating added value for at least the policyholder, the associate partner and insurers/the Association Verbond. To this end, associate partners get access to our network and you are part of the ecosystem to which almost all insurers are affiliated. We exchange knowledge and experiences on common themes and thus improve our mutual insights.
The Dutch Association of Insurers organizes meetings in which the Association and the associate partner can reinforce each other or make use of each other's expertise. As an associate partner, you can participate in this for free. Participation in meetings of a working group or platform is by invitation. You can also make additional use of services / informative services of the Association.
How does your organization become an associate partner?
If an insurer applies for membership, some conditions apply. This applies to a lesser extent to associate partners; the Association only applies a number of criteria to guarantee quality and image/reputation to some extent.
When submitting an application, we will assess you on the following criteria:
- The upcoming associatepartner is not an insurer.
- The young associatepartnerisfora substantial part of the insurance sector and part of the insurance chain.
- The young associate partner has an undisputed image/reputation.
- The prospective associate partner makes a contribution or added value to the Association /members of the Association.
The board of the Association assesses the application. The criteria are not conclusive; in case of doubt, the board can still decide to refuse an application.
More information, application and costs
Interested? Please contact us. We are happy to inform you about the possibilities and the costs. After an exploratory meeting with a positive outcome, we will make a nomination to the board.
Mortgage-providing directing parties
As of mid-September 2021, three mortgage-providing directing parties have entered into an associate partnership with us. In terms of proposition, ambition and distribution model, these organisations are very similar to mortgage-providing insurers. With them we exchange knowledge and experiences on common themes to improve our insights and to work on efficient solutions for the customer, the associate partner and insurers.
