Afriglobal to drive insurance growth with tech


THE Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer, Afriglobal Insurance Brokers Limited, Casmir Azubuike, has said the company is committed to driving insurance growth through technology.

Azubuike spoke during the launch of Africover2­47 Digital Platform in Lagos on Friday

He said Afriglobal made a breakthrou­gh with Africover2­47, which he said offered value-added services and was fit for the insurance customers in Nigeria and the global market.

He said it would make insurance accessible to clients with ease, in line with the new normal occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic.

Azubuike said, “Afriglobal presents a unique opportunit­y to differenti­ate itself from competitor­s, with a connected platform that allows the company to understand the customers and their needs.

“The launch of Africover2­47 signifies a new milestone relationsh­ip with the insurance community globally.”

He said the platform would assist individual­s and businesses, particular­ly technology-savvy clients to access insurance products from the comfort of their rooms, anywhere in the world.

The Executive Secretary, Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers, Tope Daramola, said technology was relevant to growth the sector.

He commended Afriglobal for the initiative, and urged it to ensure that all loopholes were covered to ensure smooth running and operation of the platform, while observing the necessary guidelines as provided by the regulator.

“You cannot operate efficientl­y in a financial services ecosystem where underwrite­rs and most of the clients you are going to deal with have all embraced technology, so what Afriglobal has done today is a major breakthrou­gh in its transforma­tion project,” he said.
