Hollard at a glance
The Hollard Insurance Group (hereafter referred to as Hollard), comprising both life and general insurance, was established in 1980 in South Africa. With its head office in Johannesburg, Hollard is South Africa’s largest independent insurance company, known throughout the African continent for its innovative approach and customer-centric brand. Hollard provides short-term and life insurance as well as investment products to a diverse customer base including individual consumers, commercial entities and corporate clients. Today, they represent an annual premium exceeding $2 billion. Hollard has existing operations and investments in Namibia, Mozambique, Ghana, Botswana, Zambia, Australia, India, Indonesia, Lesotho, Pakistan, China and the United Kingdom.
They serve over 6 million policyholders through over 100 partnerships. Although they’re a global player in 10 countries on four continents, Hollard is still a fourth-generation family-owned, unlisted company that incorporated a long-term view in the pursuit of opportunities that will produce profits on a sustainable basis. It ranks among a growing number of companies advocating an inclusive growth model, measuring its social dividends alongside its shareholder contributions.
This long-term view has an important impact both on the culture of the organization and its ability to deliver innovative insurance solutions. Although structured as separate companies for legal and reporting purposes, both Hollard entities, general insurance and life, share a common vision, infrastructure and management. This provides Hollard with the ability to access both general and life licenses and has allowed Hollard to provide innovative and integrated solutions to customers’ insurance needs.
Since inception, partnership has been at the heart of its business model, with the group today boasting over 100 ventures across the insurance value chain. Each one demonstrates the Hollard belief that there is always a better way. This approach to partnership, allied with its long-term view, has enabled Hollard to create an impressive track record in delivering customer-centric insurance innovation throughout the countries in which it operates.
