What is a Mutual Insurance Company?
A Mutual insurance company is organized solely for the benefit of its Policyholders. Profits earned by a mutual are reinvested into the company for the benefit of the Policyholders or returned to the Policyholders in the form of dividends.
In contrast, a stock insurance company is owned by investors who have purchased company stock. Profits generated by a stock insurance company are distributed to the investors without necessarily benefitting the Policyholders.
With a mutual company, there is no conflict of interest between the short-term financial demands of investors and the long-term interests of Policyholders.
