The digital mutual: Episode 9, Achmea (Netherlands)
With a history of more than 200 years, ICMIF member Achmea grew from a small mutual insurer to the largest insurance company in the Dutch market. Achmea’s product range includes insurance, asset management and (financial) services in all distribution channels, including through its partner organisation Rabobank. Achmea’s aim is to create a state-of-the-art insurance company which delivers value to customers and society in line its cooperative values. To achieve this, the company places special, but not exclusive, focus on five domains: (1) giving people access to healthcare services; (2) making mobility cleaner, safer and smarter; (3) secure and environmentally sustainable housing and living; (4) entrepreneurship; and (5) financial solutions for now and later. One of the main drivers in Achmea’s strategy is to do this by using technology and data as an asset to become a digital, data-driven insurer. This involves giving customers, employees and partners trusted access to their information with digital self-service. In this webinar, Achmea share the story of its digital transformation journey in recent years and look at the opportunities and challenges ahead.
