Assignment Topic

When people talk about insurance companies, they often believe all insurance companies are the same. This is not true. Howard Mutual is proud to be one of many local mutual insurance companies in Ontario and across Canada. Mutuals are a different type of insurance company as compared to public or stock insurance companies.

Explain the main differences between a mutual insurance company and a stock insurance company, including the pros and cons of dealing with each of these types of insurance companies. Outline the possible benefits of belonging to a local mutual insurance company, as well as the benefits of a mutual insurance company (like Howard Mutual) operating in the local community.
