The Platform Mutual Insurers (POV) represents the interests of cooperative insurers in the Netherlands, also beyond national borders. For example, the platform is affiliated with international branch organizations Amice and ICMIF. Other important anchors of the POV activities are:
- Network function
Services and regulation
All mutual societies that are affiliated with the POV can count on a broad individual and collective service. For example, the platform offers courses, including the WFT PE course and a four-day driver course at Nyenrode University. In addition, members can attend thematic meetings and seek individual advice. And finally, the POV supports the members in the implementation of self-regulation.
The POV attaches great importance to personal contact. After all, personal contact creates interconnectedness and gives us insight into your wishes and needs. That is why the POV visits all members approximately once a year and working lunches, an annual Prevention Day, various networking and information meetings are organized.
In 2016, the Foundation for Economic Research conducted a major study into the role and position of 'The cooperative insurer in 2025' (see below in the publications). This provides us with a guideline in our actions.
On 1 January 2015, the Federation of Mutual Insurers (FOV) merged with the Dutch Association of Insurers. Since that day, the FOV has been going through life as a POV.
