We offer choice to our clients and their members through carefully managed mutuals which can include broking and contact centre projects. Our services provide a made-to-measure alternative to conventional insurance.

We’re passionate about empowering our clients so they’re in control. The mutuals we manage are inherently customer focused and their products are designed specifically for the members. We are constantly challenging our staff to think differently to support the mutuals and their members.

Regis Mutual Management is an international market leader in creating and managing true mutuals – a new generation of mutuals that are based upon the spirit of mutuals in their original form, brought to life by modern, professional and disciplined management skills. We’re ICMIF’s (International Cooperative and Mutual Insurance Federation) preferred choice for establishing new mutuals in the developed world.


“The biggest thing Regis has is the ethos. They understand what a mutual is, they get it. They believe in it and they are focussed on it.”


Martin Griffith
Chair of Unimutual

What is a Mutual?

Mutuals aren’t a new idea; they have been around for hundreds of years. Whilst the concept is steeped in history, it’s more relevant today than it’s ever been. Mutuals offer a strong, stable and trusted alternative to traditional insurance companies with shareholders.

Regis create and manage mutuals – an alternative to traditional insurance

Mutuals do not have shareholders, instead each mutual is owned by its members – its customers. The mutual is operated solely for the benefit of the members. All members pay a contribution to the mutual which is used to pay claims and run the business. Members can attend Annual General Meetings and vote on important issues including who is elected to the board. The board makes key decisions such as what to do with any surplus after payment of claims, insurance premiums and administration costs.

Our mutuals offer a robust structure for claims and risk transfer, or as we call it; a redesigned approach to insurance.

At Regis we are passionate about mutuals.

Pete Watts

Underwriting Manager

I joined the Regis, Unimutual team in September 2015 after working for 16 years working in the insurance industry. My career started in claims where I developed an appreciation for clients and the pressures they faced when going through tough times following a loss. From insurance I moved into broking where I designed insurance programmes, largely for communities and not for profit industries. An opportunity presented in the Global Property Underwriting space, which focussed on outwards programs for major Australian organisations including Government, Logistics, Food and Beverage, Manufacturing (and Unimutual) with a larger focus on higher hazard accounts. This led into a Reinsurance Broking role in London, placing into Lloyds of London and Company markets largely looking at facultative and wholesale placements from around the Globe. Upon my return to Australia an excellent opportunity presented at Regis Mutual Management.

I decided to move into Mutual Management as I felt passionate about a neglected part of the market which Mutuals fit perfectly with. This allow me to concentrate on alternate risk transfer mechanisms as well as designing products and solutions that benefited the customer as well as the insurance market. Regis is about understanding the differences that an industry segment has and working hard to find the best sustainable solution.
