Voice is ICMIF’s quarterly magazine, containing stories and news embracing the sector as well as in-depth interviews with chief executives.
From this issue:
Mutual and cooperative insurers tend to be long-lived: Voice regularly carries news of 100 year anniversary celebrations of member organisations. But surely no other ICMIF member can rival the astonishing longevity of the Danish insurer Købstædernes Forsikring, which this year is commemorating its 250th anniversary.
Ask Købstædernes Forsikring’s current President and CEO Mogens N Skov about this early history, and he immediately comes out with the details: it was on January 13th 1761, he says, that his organisation was established. What’s more, the original royal warrant signed by King Frederik V is still safely in existence.
