REGIS MUTUAL MANAGEMENT PROFILE
If there’s one thing we know about, it’s mutuality. Since 2007 we’ve been successfully setting up, managing and growing mutuals under the Regis name.
The type of mutual that Regis Mutual Management creates and manages is an organisation that provides an alternative to conventional insurance cover for its Members.
Our talented team is made up of insurance and mutual specialists who have been managing mutuals for many years. In the management team alone there’s over a hundred years experience in the field and we can stake claim to twelve separate start ups.
We make it our business to spread the word on mutuality.
We are determined to help the mutual market share grow and that’s why we are ICMIF’s preferred choice for establishing new Mutuals in developed countries.

A mutual is a company owned and controlled by its members
The type of mutual that Regis creates and manages is an organisation that provides an alternative to conventional insurance cover for its Members.
Its sole purpose is to provide benefits for its members and to meet their needs in terms of price, service and the risks covered.
Typically, a mutual is formed for an organisation whose members share a high degree of similarity in their risk profiles. As a group, these members are able to achieve benefits that they could not obtain individually.
A mutual can provide an attractive alternative to conventional insurance products and services.
