The Star (St. Lucia) - - BUSINESS MATTERS -

March 22 marked an im­por­tant mile­stone in the his­tory of in­sur­ance in Saint Lu­cia, the of­fi­cial launch of the Grace Kennedy Fi­nan­cial Group in­sur­ance brand, GK In­sur­ance (EC) Ltd. through agents, EC Global In­sur­ance Agency.

The part­ner­ship with Grace Kennedy be­gan with the in­cep­tion of EC Global In­sur­ance Com­pany just shy of four­teen years ago. In Au­gust 2014 the ma­jor­ity share­hold­ing in­ter­est in EC Global In­sur­ance Com­pany was di­vested to Grace Kennedy. Sub­se­quent to this, the EC Global In­sur­ance Agency was es­tab­lished to sup­port the pro­vi­sion of a “one stop shop” for cus­tomers across the bank­ing and in­sur­ance ser­vice in­dus­tries. Over the years, EC Global es­tab­lished a firm foot­ing in the lo­cal in­sur­ance mar­ket, with a rep­u­ta­tion char­ac­ter­ized by in­no­va­tive poli­cies such as the soon to be re­launched An­gel Ad­van­tage Pol­icy.

Ac­cord­ing to Gen­eral Man­ager of GK In­sur­ance Ltd, An­drew Leo-Rhynie, “GK In­sur­ance is hon­oured to cel­e­brate this part­ner­ship mile­stone with EC Global. We have made a home in Saint Lu­cia. GK In­sur­ance (EC) will con­tinue to en­sure that our clients know that they are with an in­sur­ance com­pany they can trust and their mat­ters are in good hands with their best in­ter­est at heart.”

GK In­sur­ance Lim­ited is a lead­ing in­surer in Ja­maica and the re­gion. The launch in Saint Lu­cia rep­re­sents a key com­po­nent of the planned growth across the Eastern Caribbean. Lo­ca­tions in Saint Vin­cent and the Gre­nadines, and An­tigua are ex­pected to be op­er­a­tional in 2017.
