Guiding principles

In trust we trust
As an insurance company, we default to trust. And we’ve noticed that if you get it without having to earn it, greatness happens almost instantly

The status is not quo
We can’t reshape an entire industry by being ordinary. So we push ourselves beyond the extraordinary and try out things that sound too crazy to work.

Be real
By being authentic and showing who we really are, we become closer as a team. Genuine emotions is a beautiful thing. We don’t judge, instead we try to put ourselves in your shoes.

We’re grown-up now
Our success is never up to someone else. All of us take ownership for our own actions and reflect on our behaviors to continuously grow.

Agree to disagree
We don’t fear the truth, we actively pursue it. By pushing each other to find a better approach, friction is likely to happen. But above all, it will lead to new solutions that we all can stand behind.
