How we work

We collaborate with our clients – who we regard as partners – to create relevant and appropriate risk-transfer solutions that enable them to address the challenges they face, optimise their resources and, ultimately, increase their social impact.

Contributing our expertise in the global risk management and insurance sectors, we work closely together to find new and effective ways to adapt our knowledge and apply fresh solutions to the unique and specific needs of the humanitarian aid and development sectors.   

SIP’s mission is to increase the effectiveness and reach of humanitarian aid and development interventions by identifying all the associated risks and developing innovative risk transfer solutions to address them.

In collaboration with our NGO and donor partners, our objective is to add significant and sustainable value by developing mechanisms that will ensure:

  • Sector funding can be stretched further
  • Funding can be allocated and deployed without delay
  • Wider, global access to essential goods and services, at better prices, as soon as the need arises

We partner with you for
innovative solutions

Core to our culture is the belief that it is through partnerships that the greatest social impact is achieved. Through getting the right heads around the table we firmly believe we can find creative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges in the development sector. Social Impact Partners is a product of this partnering mentality. As such we always look to use and strengthen our network through continuous collaboration.

We collaborate with humanitarian aid
and development sector networks

We link the development space to
the finance and insurance sector

Social Impact Partners (SIP) is a joint venture between two global insurance industry players with risk management in their DNA: Munich Re, based in Germany, is one of the largest reinsurers in the world, and Hollard is South Africa’s largest privately-owned insurer. Together, they operate from over 50 locations on four continents and have extensive expertise in both the developed environment and the development sector.

MunichRe brings rich experience in risk management and big data analysis, including sector-specific risks (such as climate, procurement and aid delivery), while Hollard contributes considerable expertise in the insurance, risk improvement and sustainable social impact markets in developing countries.  With our joint capability to link NGOs and donors to the financial and risk management sectors, Social Impact Partners makes a unique and valued contribution to the humanitarian and development sectors.
