•    Gaining access to emerging/disruptive and competitive business models;
•    Creating insights in new technologies, customers and channels;
•    Creating financial returns for Achmea.

The ambition is to grow the fund to an initial size of EUR 100 million.

Investment sizes will vary between EUR 500,000 and EUR 5 million per investment (inclusive follow-on investments).

AIF will also act as a partner to its portfolio companies and be co-responsible for their societal impact and commercial success. 

About Achmea
Achmea is the #1 insurance company in the Netherlands. With its approximately 14,000 employees, it is managing brands such as Centraal Beheer, Interpolis and Zilveren Kruis in the areas of health, property and life insurance. Originally a cooperative company, and majority owned by a foundation, its socially responsible background continues to influence the company’s mission and strategy. Achmea strives to balance the interests of its customers, partners, employees and shareholders in a responsible way, with a special attention to a number of Sustainable Development Goals.

The organization 
AIF is structured as an independent entity (100% subsidiary of Achmea) with a separate investment committee (IC) and board of directors. The aim is to cooperate intensively with the various divisions of Achmea, in order to fully benefit from working with a large insurance company like Achmea.

The fund is supported by various staff functions of Achmea (Finance, Legal and Communication) that will also assist the decision-making process of the IC and can also help the portfolio companies of the fund.
