About Folksam

Folksam is a mutual company meaning our customers are also our owners. The profit doesn’t go to shareholders, it stays within the company and benefits us all. In co-operation with our customers we create and provide a variety of solutions for insurance, savings and loans, offering high quality, the greatest possible security and the best economic benefit. Primarily we satisfy the needs shared by many. Our vision is to contribute to a long-term sustainable society where the individual feels secure. Our core values are security, commitment, compassion and professionalism. They guide us in everything we say and do. Our products include personal insurance, savings and loans, householders’ and houseowners’ insurance, commercial insurance for cars, boats and pets as well as different types of group insurance for sport organisations, trade unions and other organisations. We contribute to a long-term sustainable social development trough research, information, debate and practical initiatives. We strive to help reduce accidents through a variety of preventive measures within areas such as Health, Environment and Traffic. Our position as one of Sweden’s biggest asset managers allows us to influence the companies we invest in. We encourage them to take a greater responsibility for the environment, human rights and we do not invest in companies where any of the sales are generated from tobacco production or tobacco products. Folksam has from the start co-operated with the major popular movements in Sweden making it possible to reduce prices by offering group insurance. Through our group home insurance we have contributed to a significant change in the number of uninsured homes. Other group solutions are pension, group life, sickness and accident insurance. Folksam was founded in 1908 as a response to great injustices. In the beginning of the 20th century there was a lack of insurance solutions for ordinary people with a low income on the Swedish market. Folksam changed this injustice and offered insurance to everyone and did so to a reasonable price.
