In line with its purpose, Africa Re initiated these awards to foster best corporate management, leadership, governance as well as innovative and sustainable growth in the insurance sector in Africa.
The African Insurance Awards aim at: rewarding and celebrating leaders, best performers and achievers in the African insurance industry; identifying and stimulating distinctive innovations in the insurance sector in Africa; encouraging sustainable growth in terms of insurance premium combined with business profitability in the sector; and providing added value by sharing progress and best practices in the development of insurance in Africa.
The awards, which started in 2015, target a range of participants, including African insurance companies and African insurance CEOs.
The key objective is to promote the development of insurance in Africa by honouring distinguished companies and leaders of insurance companies that have raised exceptional standards of competence and achievement and demonstrated an unprecedented level of insurance industry leadership.
The African Insurance Awards took place on May 25 2015 in Tunis, Tunisia.
