Voice is ICMIF’s quarterly magazine, containing stories and news embracing the sector as well as in-depth interviews with chief executives.
From this issue:
As Jens Henriksson knows, taking over the top management job at a company like Folksam brings with it quite an inheritance. Folksam, originally set up in 1908 and always a strongly socially-orientated business, has in recent years consolidated its position. It has moved up from being the second life insurer in the country to the largest, while at the same time it has grown to become the third largest general insurer. Put these together, Jens says, and that makes Folksam the largest insurance firm in the Swedish market. The company claims to insure one in two of every family home in Sweden and to protect every second person.
