The 46th African Insurance Organisation Conference and General Assembly kicked off in style at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg, with over 900 delegates from 60 countries in attendance. We are extremely proud to be hosting the event alongside our partner, the Insurance Institute of South Africa (IISA).

Under this year’s theme – Insurance Penetration in Africa: Insuring the Uninsured – the conference focuses on insurance distribution and inclusivity across the continent. Other topical issues under discussion include micro-insurance and the effects of climatic events (such as floods, droughts and wildfires) on the industry and the economy in general.
