The  Insurance Association of Cyprus (IAC) on Friday announced that it has launched its new website, which is ready to be used by interested parties.

According to the announcement, the website was designed to be easy to use, with the association considering it instrumental in enhancing the role that the IAC has to play, as the recognised and representative body of the Insurance Industry in Cyprus.

“With a modern design and keeping up with the modern demands of online communication, our new website serves as a distribution channel of valuable content to industry executives, the public and the media,” the association said.

The website contains information on the 29 member companies that the association represents, the collective positions and proposals of its members to the executive and legislative branches of the government, as well as details on its role in the development of the insurance industry in Cyprus.

At the same time, the website provides informative content about insurance, in an effort to address insurance illiteracy.

The Director General of IAC, Andreas Athanasiades, said that he believes that the association’s new website will decisively contribute to the further development of the insurance industry.

“The renewed website of the IAC is our direct contact with society, our own communication channel,” Athanasiades said.

“With valuable content and an improved navigation experience, our new website plays a critical role in boosting the development of the sector and the strengthening of the insurance institution,” he concluded.
