How do we operate

board

Eurapco Board

Each Partner Company is represented by its CEO in the Eurapco board, which meets regularly to steer and monitor the activities of the Alliance. The Chairman of the Eurapco board is Markus Hongler, CEO of Swiss Mobiliar, for the period 2017-2019. The Alliance follows a rotating chairmanship every second year.

Today the significance of international networking for national operating companies is increasing more and more. In the war of talent it is crucial to have access to international know-how. For this, Eurapco is the perfect platform for experience exchange as well as for developing joint solutions within our European Partners.

Our partnership with members of Eurapco is important to us. We share some considerable potential for development, which we should be leveraging to ensure we can capture the knowledge and expertise available in the wider context of the Eurapco Alliance. If we can take this partnership a step further, it could create a very big market player. I believe this is the right time to explore more vigorously the potential that lies within the Eurapco Partners.

Eurapco has an enormous potential as an association within the European Union, counting more than 65.000 employees and 40 billion Euros in total premium. The exchange of knowledge, the sharing of experience and our local specialisation will enable us to develop our business together, and this, amongst other advantages, gives us a tremendous strength in modern day Europe.

Partnership is one of the basis of Covéa’s culture. The one initiated with Eurapco widens our field of vision and offers profitable exchanges upon best practices and market challenges with the other main european mutual insurers. In some areas, it gives opportunities to develop business.

A Europe without any borders offers great opportunities to our corporate clients for their business. Every-day life and work of our clients and their employees become more and more international. We are well adviced to adopt the perspective of our clients and support them on their way.

Eurapco is an Alliance where LocalTapiola has no doubts being involved, and whose network we will exploit intensively. Europe-wide trends like future demographical changes mean that well being and health solutions will remain in focus of all Eurapco Partners. Understanding and knowing the business of other partners is essential in order to benefit from the co-operation beyond the general level.

The mutual form of ownership is an odd bird in the finance industry; our special circumstances are often forgotten. With EURAPCO we get inspiration, new experiences, and an opportunity to call the attention of clients and politicians in Europe to the strengths in our form of ownership.

We are very proud to be part of such a prestigious international alliance, the members of which chose to trust our Group and recognised our value. This partnership aims to enhance the potential and the specific competency of each company, helping us to reach our strategic goals in a more effective way, keeping our total independence. Moreover, all the partners of Eurapco share with us the mutual structure and thus, the Eurapco Alliance is even closer to our history and tradition and, certainly, to our future.
