  • Our Lines of Business

    As African economies grow, local property markets are becoming more developed, with demand growing for ever-more ambitious property complexes – including high-rise office blocks, multi-use or combined residential and commercial centres and industrial parks.

    Insuring such properties requires technical expertise and sophisticated underwriting skills.

    Whatever the development paths taken by African countries, they are all working on major construction and infrastructure projects - whether that is of commercial and residential property, road and rail networks, power distribution infrastructure, or even sports stadia.

    Investors and Businesses active in Africa are aware of the need to protect themselves against the risks of contract cancellation, assets confiscation or trade flows disruption.

    Before offering credit for a project or trade, banks require satisfaction that any proposed loan has been sufficiently mitigated with the appropriate insurance covers.
