Founded in April 2017, SIP is a joint venture between two leading global insurance industry players: Germany-based Munich Re, one of the largest reinsurance companies in the world, and the Hollard Insurance Company, South Africa’s largest privately-owned insurance group. Together these partners operate from over 50 locations over four continents. Each of these two founding companies brings formidable skills and resources to bear in SIP. Munich Re, on the one hand, offers the immense power of big data analysis and risk management especially on natural catastrophes as well as experience in the development sector; Hollard, on the other, contributes decades’ worth of insurance and risk improvement expertise in both developed and developing markets, and experience in delivering sustainable social impact projects
With an insurance industry background, risk management is in our DNA. Therefore, scientific thinking is key to what we do. We’re about enabling social development. We are about making it possible for organizations to reach more people in need. Insurance in not necessarily the best risk management strategy.
