Anker Insurance Company has a visible social function, in particular within the maritime sector. The best interests of customers, cooperation partners and employees in combination with thinking driven by continuity has, both from history and from the widely supported in-house culture, always prevailed over short-term thinking and pursuit of profit. Directors, Supervisory Board members and managers and staff members are fully aware that a proper functioning governance structure is necessary for an ethically and economically sound functioning of an insurance company.
Good governance or in other words sound administration and supervision is an important theme in the insurance industry. Stated succinctly, Good Governance has to do with responsible, ethical, professional and transparent management in which continuity and a balanced weighing of interests are the key elements.
The code of conduct of the Dutch Association of Insurers is an important code of conduct for the management of Anker Insurance Company. It contains the principles for permanent education of directors and supervisory directors and for the careful treatment of our clients. Anker Insurance Company follows these principles.
Additionally, although not stock exchange listed, Anker Insurance Company applies the principles and best practice guidelines from the Dutch Corporate Governance Code of December 2016 in a proportionate manner.
