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.

 The close to 3,000 EU insurers united in the mutual and cooperative sector account for more than half of all insurance undertakings and for a market share of more than 32%. They provide cover for more than 400 million members/policyholders and employ nearly 440,000 staff.
