Friendly societies write mainly long-term life insurance or sickness and accident benefit products. Their primary objectives are similar to that of mutual insurance companies, however many friendly societies also include social and benevolent activities among their purposes. Because they are mutuals they have no external stakeholders and are owned by their policyholders.
