Five new French insurers join DARVA's capital

In 2023, DARVA has celebrated his 35th birthday. The same year, BPCE Assurances IARD, Cardif IARD, ASSURANCES DU CREDIT MUTUEL, PACIFICA and SOGESSUR joined the capital of the company.
The arrival of these major names of the insurance industry, who are already customers of our services, confirm the trust placed in the company and their desire to become involved in its governance in order to stimulate innovation and contribute to its future development.

A rapidly and profoundly changing insurance industry

This new context imposed a different approach to work for all its stakeholders. More open, more immediate, more collaborative.

DARVA has been supporting these changes for more than thirty years, and continues to work alongside its customers, to always be at the heart of this transformation.

Constantly changing technologies, practices and uses

These changes had to be secure, structured and connected. DARVA’s unique expertise in electronic data interchange and its privileged relationship with major insurers enabled it to innovate and respond reliably to these future challenges.

Reinventing claims management

Technology, data and usage are now the key drivers of claims management. These changes are opportunities to reinvent ourselves, to actively contribute to the daily performance of insurers and the satisfaction of policyholders.
