Sponsoring and donation policy

As a financial service provider, a.s.r. finds it important that people have financial continuity in their lives and that they are able to take responsible risks and make conscious financial choices. a.s.r. wants to help prevent people from getting into debt, or helping them to get out again. Back to the 'roots' of insurance. Helping by doing.
Our sponsorship and donation policy fits in with this and is always focused on those starting points. The purely financial support does not or hardly ever occur. It is often a combination of material and substantive support.

Foundations

a.s.r. is committed to conserving cultural and social heritage, which is why the company is involved in a number of nation-wide and local foundations. The historical library cabinet of a.s.r.-predecessor De Utrecht, for example, was given a beautiful place in our building after more than 40 years of wandering. The local ties mostly stem from the past presence of an a.s.r. division in a city or town.
