Tryggingamiðlun Íslands ehf (hereafter “TMI”) was founded in June 1997 by Karl Jónsson and is one of the largest and longest standing insurance agencies in Iceland. As of January 2010 the current owners, Friðbert Elí Friðbertsson and Gísli Ölvir Böðvarsson acquired the business after two years of being co-owners. TMI is a part of the Icelandic brokers association and is regulated by Fjármálaeftirlitið (FME – the Icelandic Financial Services Authority).
TMI started its business with selling savings and insurance policies for the UK based companies Friends Provident International and AXA Sun Life. Today, TMI services over 20.000 policies from these companies.
