Operations:

The company’s operations are fully automated with seamless integration between units embedded in world standard applications, which reflects a commitment to use technology to drive excellence in service delivery. Furthermore, the company operates under the revolutionary concept of total quality management (TQM). This guarantees that we get it right first time every time.

 Our Board and Management:

Our dynamic Board of Directors is headed by Mr. Johnson Egu Chukwu, an accomplished banker and a financial analyst of reliable reference. In addition, the company boasts of a management team of tested professionals with proven records in their respective fields and it is led by Mr. Bode Akinboye, a long-standing insurance practitioner with proven records.

Our Capacity:

To achieve our objective of providing relevant insurance covers, we have re-insurance treaty arrangements with first class re-insurance companies both locally and internationally. The capacity of our treaties is top class and calculated to achieve our “Customer Full Protection Drive”. Our foreign treaty is led by Africa Reinsurance Corporation.

Claims Payment Policy:

Our claims payment policy is to PAY PROMPTLY. This reflects our general TQM approach to service. Accordingly, our Claims Department is staffed by experienced and service-oriented professionals who ensure claims payment is prompt and less cumbersome at all times.

Existing and Identified Insurable Risks:

We have a crack team of professionally qualified and experienced personnel that handles all the classes of insurance identified under “Products”. This, alongside the computerized systems that we operate, guarantees that we deliver quality service at all times.

Reducing the Cost of Your Insurance:

Our Research and Risk Management departments can do a lot to cut down on both your insurable risks and insurance costs. This department acts as a consulting unit to clients. On appointment, they study the operations of clients and make practical cost-saving recommendations for implementation.

Existing but Unidentified Insurable Risks

These are mainly UNUSUAL RISKS. They exist and may already be disrupting clients’ businesses. However, they may currently be considered uninsurable. Again, our team of consultants can, on review of clients’ operations, advise on these unusual risks. If subsequently insured, this will avert such disruptions.

SA Insurance is structured to guarantee efficiency in the service we deliver and complete satisfaction for our clients. We run a near-flat organizational structure that empowers middle level officers to quickly take operational decisions. This also ensures seamless communication between top management and the operators, guaranteeing that decisions are quickly reached and clients’ service times are shortened. Accordingly, the company is structured into the following service centres:

The Customer Service Group

This group includes the first officer you meet at our door. This primary orientation ensures our services work efficiently for all our clients. Our front-line staff are adequately empowered to attend to on the-spot issues and resolve them or to secure an appropriate executive who can handle the issue at hand. This group is also empowered to monitor and evaluate the quality of service delivery to our clients.

The Marketing and Business Development Group

This group is responsible for selling full protection to our clients at industry approved minimal cost. Their job is to educate and explain our various products and adapt these products to specific clients’ needs. In addition, they are constantly researching new ways of giving more value to our clients. Their watchword is quality service delivery.

The Technical Service Group

This group forms the company’s backbone. They deliver the final product to clients and implement the commitments secured by the Marketing Group. Their primary focus is to ensure that the company delivers promptly on each promise made to a client. That is why we can confidently invite our clients to count on us.

Special Products and Risk Management Group:

This group focuses on developing new products for the insuring public and on providing consultancy service to our clients. Their main objective is to give our clients more value at minimal cost. New products tailored to meet our clients’ increasingly sophisticated needs is the company’s specialty.
