Hollard Insurance has scooped the awards for Commercial and Corporate Insurer of the year at the annual awards of the Financial Intermediaries Association of Southern Africa (FIA).
Speaking after the awards ceremony, Pierre Geyer, Joint MD of Hollard Broker Markets said: “It’s a challenging environment but we understand the risks that South African businesses face and we are perfectly positioned to serve the needs of this market. We are particularly pleased to have received these awards because we have made several significant changes to Hollard’s strategy in the business space over the last 18 months”.
January 2014 saw the creation of Hollard Broker Markets, a business division within Hollard, with a focus on business insurance sourced through brokers. The division was created when Hollard purchased Etana Insurance Company, one of SA’s fastest-growing commercial insurers and merged it with existing businesses. The purchase consolidated Hollard’s ability to offer comprehensive corporate and commercial insurance solutions in a broker-driven market.
