Annual General Meeting 2024

 

Our AGM is an important meeting, where the Board of Management can communicate with you as a member of the Society, and where you and other members can give us feedback and vote on how the business is managed.

 

Unlike many insurers we are a mutual, owned by you our members and run solely for your benefit. By using your vote, you can have your say in what we do and express your opinions.

  2. The Financial Statements are available on this page and include the Report of the Board of Management, the Strategic Report, the Independent Auditor's Report and the Board Remuneration Report.
  3. The Board Remuneration Report is found on page 66 of the Financial Statements.
  4. You will find biographies of the Board members, for whom you are asked to vote, on page 5 and 6 of the Financial Statements. We suggest you vote to elect, or re-elect those Board members put forward because they represent the various skills and professions required to ensure your Board of Management has a balanced mix of skills and experience and is well qualified to run the Society on your behalf.
  5. We suggest you vote for the re-appointment of Moore as Society Auditor as they are experienced in providing services specific to the Holloway Income Protection sector.
  6. We suggest you vote for the re-election of the Arbitrators, who are required under legislation and the Society Rules. They are available to members to assist in the resolution of disputes.

    However, they do not replace nor are they an alternative to the Financial Ombudsman Service to whom you have a statutory right to refer disputes or complaints in the first instance. The Arbitrators provide a balanced, independent assessment of such matters that may arise.
 

We would really like you to attend the AGM in person. Attending this way will give you the chance to meet members of the Board of Management, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have. It will also give you with the chance to meet our staff and some of your fellow members.
