Protecting your interests: insurance management for industrial associations

In representing the interests of certain industries and sectors, associations play an important role in the economy. They support their members in legal, administrative and other relevant fields and are an external contact for the government, authorities, consumers, institutions and the media.

When developing insurance solutions for industrial associations, attention is mainly focused on the operational and organisational risks, specifically the protection of individuals working on a voluntary basis. As Germany’s largest family-run independent insurance broker in this field, Funk has years of experience and expert knowledge of a wide range of industries. Funk has developed individual solutions especially for associations, which cover the risks typical for the industry in question with comprehensive, cost-effective and administratively lean products.

Funk – a partner of top German associations for many years

For years now, Funk has supported top associations such as Bundesvereinigung der Deutschen Arbeitgeberverbände e. V. (the Confederation of German Employers (BDA)) and associations organised through this, Chambers of Industry and Commerce and a number of other associations that are not coordinated through an umbrella organisation. We offer our clients the following and more:

  • Consultancy for the management team of the association in all matters concerning risk and insurance management

  • Comprehensive risk analysis and cover concepts for employer and commercial associations as well as chambers of industry and commerce

  • Special cover concepts for the management team of the association, e.g. D & O (Directors and Officers) insurance

  • Individual consultancy for members of the association or chamber if desired

  • Development and /assessment of insurance solutions under special terms and conditions, e.g. public liability, professional indemnity

  • Informative service for the management team of the association


Development of insurance strategies for associations and chambers – an overview

Benefit from a comprehensive insurance solution from a single source, with cover that significantly exceeds standard market solutions:

  • Complete protection against your operational and organisational risks with a policy that includes comprehensive legal protection

  • Calculation using less specific parameters; changes in risk over the course of a year do not affect premiums with a few exceptions

  • Specific wording that is exclusively implemented through renowned German insurers

  • No limitation difficulties in the event of a claim between operational and organisational liability claims because only one insurer is involved

  • Additional associations and companies may also be easily included in the insurance cover if specific requirements are met

  • Individual solutions on the sums insured depending on the size of the association in question


We also offer a special product for protection against your office risks, which provides comprehensive and cost-effective cover for properties/electronic equipment insurance and liability insurance including additional costs and business interruption risks.
