Scope of the report

Our 2015 integrated report provides a comprehensive overview of the activities of the MMI Holdings Ltd group (MMI) as well as its financial and non-financial performance for the 12 months from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015. The report also gives a detailed overview of the group’s client-centric operating model, its strategy and all financial and non-financial matters that are considered material. Matters are considered material if they can affect the group’s ability to create value for all stakeholders.
