The Association is dedicated to attracting and retaining young and talented professionals in the insurance industry across Africa thereby providing a platform for them to develop their business relationships through regular educational and networking events.


Insurance in Africa is a driver for economic development, however, to realize the full economic development potential, insurers need to adapt their products and distribution channels to the specific features of local markets. Insurance is;


A Growth Driver

Insurance drives economic growth by expediting the recovery of claimants and beneficiaries. Insurers pay claims whenever there is a covered loss described in the insurance contract.

A Vector Of Distribution And Solidarity

It creates an invisible solidarity net between economic agents around shared preferences and priorities. Insurance lends economic tangibility to the concept of solidarity and structures it finan¬cially through two fundamental principles: pooling or aggregating risks, and mutualizing risks.



Statistics have it that 86.7% of insurance professionals under the age of 35 would recommend joining the industry because it’s a business that is built on relationships and trust. The characteristics are not peculiar to what many other industries offer in terms of social and personal development.
