Achmea Australia is part of the Achmea Group which was established more than 200 years ago when 39 farmers put money into a glass jar, to be compensated in case one of them had a ‘Hooibroei’, a haystack fire.
Those 39 farmers, 200 years ago, supported each other and worked together to minimise the risks and threats faced by each other’s farms, not just their own.
Their commitment to a co-operative approach to insurance remains alive and well in Achmea today. Through its brands, the Achmea Group has supported the Netherlands in becoming the world’s second largest agricultural exporter.
Achmea’s strong growth shows that as an insurer, we are actively responding to changes in societies and client’s expectations, whilst cherishing our co-operative heritage and adhering to the same co-operative principles we started with that we can achieve more by working together.
With more than 10 million clients and nearly 18,000 employees worldwide, the Achmea Group is active in its home country the Netherlands and five other countries including Australia. In the Netherlands, the Achmea Group is the largest insurance provider. General insurance (including motor, vehicle and home insurance), health and income protection insurance are its core areas of expertise.
The Achmea Group also ranks within the top three of the most sustainable insurance companies in the Netherlands, looking at the group’s investment policies. When it comes to transparency and responsibility, the Achmea Group also performs at top-level.
Achmea is active in the Netherlands with ten brands, such as Zilveren Kruis, Centraal Beheer and Interpolis.
