Africa’s population represents 16.72% of the total world population, according to a United Nations report. If we look at the giant strides on the continent in mobile technology, human capital development, rapidly growing startup culture, cross-border trade, and many more. It paints a picture that Africa is rising.
However, there is much work to be done through public and private partnerships. Access to Insurance Initiative – A2ii – (a global partnership working to ensure that the worlds excluded and underserved have access to Insurance); states that insurance allows the worlds excluded and underserved to take control of their lives and reduce their vulnerability against risks. Hence, Insurance is vital to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Africa.
However, a look at the continent tells a different story of how insurance adoption across the continent faces a myriad of issues like poor adoption, age-old traditional insurance stacks, lack of access and ease of access by consumers, and multiple policy issues across the different economic climates.
According to a Mckinsey recent report, Africa’s Gross Written Premiums (GWPS) are below one per cent of the global insurance market. Indeed, it shows that the adoption of Insurance in Africa is still abysmal. If the sector must grow, traditional insurance organisations, insurtech startups, and non-insurance businesses in Africa must partner to accelerate insurance adoption and ensure buying a policy is a seamless experience for customers. We have built Octamile, Africa’s Digital Insurance Operating System, to enable this desired change.
Our insurtech solution will help organisations to build a financially inclusive future for every African on the continent. Let us look at what Octamile insurtech solution will offer organisations insurance and non-insurance business to simplify access to Insurance and secure the financial future for Africans.
