Traditionally Connected with Sport
We place a special emphasis on the development of insurance for sportspeople of all categories. We have also taken care of sportspeople as the official insurance company of the Olympic teams (the Slovenia Team, since as far back as 1993).
For 16 years we have been working in partnership with the Football Association of Slovenia, and in September 2016 we signed a contract for a new cycle until 2020, when we will accompany the drafted team.. AS also supports the Handball Association of Slovenia and the Handball Team of Slovenia, which won a bronze medal at a world cup in France in January 2017; the collaboration will continue until 2018. We have continued to sponsor the best Slovenian sailor of all time, Vasilij Žbogar (now in the 17th year of our relationship), and the freestyle skier Filip Flisar.
AS Foundation and AS Gallery
Since as far as 1995, the AS Foundation (then Ajda, later KD Foundation) has been financially supporting gifted students, particularly musicians, in their undergraduate and graduate studies abroad.
In 2012, the company acquired a rich collection of artworks, which have been exhibited since 2014 in the AS Gallery, at the company headquarters at Dunajska 63 in Ljubljana. So far we have held already ten different exhibitions in Ljubljana. The public and the media increasingly recognise the gallery as a new and quality cultural venue in Ljubljana.
We Support Cultural, Healthcare, and Humanitarian Projects
In culture and the protection of the natural and the cultural heritage, we are a sponsor of the Portorož Auditorium and the Koper Theatre (since its establishment in 2002). We collaborate closely with the Volčji Potok Arboretum and the Lipica Stud Farm, where we hold special events that contribute to the protection of cultural and natural heritage and the recognisability of place of natural beauty, and which provide visitors with additional content.
In healthcare, in our role as general sponsor, we supported for the 15th consecutive time the selection of the best and most prominent Slovenian physicians, “My Physician”, organised by Viva magazine and supporting training and initiatives for the development and the reputation of the healthcare profession.
Among our humanitarian campaigns, the most prominent was our support for the Donate a Snack project, which has been providing children from socially disadvantaged backgrounds with school meals. At the end of 2016, we donated the funds for New Year business gifts to children and thus provided them with approximately 2,066 snacks; the donation was also supported by our insurees who concluded child and youth insurance plans online.
