About the Association

AMICE, the Association of Mutual Insurers and Insurance Cooperatives in Europe, was created in January 2008 and its prime purpose is to ensure that the voice of the mutual and cooperative insurance sector in Europe is heard and that the interests of its members are taken into account in ensuring fair and equal treatment of 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.
