The Informer


Risk is not a
negative word

In a risk-averse society the average individual would be a hermit, but the reality is that this is not the case. Adventure and curiosity are imprinted in our DNA and humans have an innate ability to perceive, internalise and manage risk throughout the course of their lives.

OESAI 2017 – Cape Town, here we come!

This year’s annual conference of the OESAI (Organisation of Eastern and Southern African Insurance) took place in Swakopmund, Namibia between 4-8 September 2016. OESAI was formed in 1973 as a result of initiatives of eight insurance companies in the Eastern and Southern Africa region. Since its inception, the organisation has greatly encouraged and enhanced cooperation in the field of insurance and reinsurance as well as their related activities among companies operating in the region.


There’s no limit to the power of relationships

The idea of people-led advertising to drive a company’s image is nothing new. Concepts like personal service, relationship marketing, long-term partnerships and ‘let’s have a conversation’ have become so overused that we hardly even notice or believe them anymore.
