Short Term Insurance in South Africa 2016/17 (Condensed Version)

An overview of South Africa's short term insurance sector

It's our belief that each and every new piece of crucial risk information places business leaders and risk managers in a better position to mitigate risks in an informed way. As sponsor of the first run of a new book solely focused on South Africa's short term insurance sector, Aon is pleased to provide clients, business leaders, students, insurance professionals, writers, marketers and advisors a free downloadable copy of the condensed book, 'Short Term Insurance in South Africa 2016/17'.

Co-authors Liz Still and Gareth Stokes went on a months-long journey into the world of insurance, insurance companies, insurance brokers and policyholders to produce a compelling read that tracks market share among short term insurers; demystifies competition in the short term insurance broker space; and lays bare the very fundamentals of insurance, risk and the broader insurance industry. The final version of the book – which was launched at the 2016 Insurance Conference at Sun City – is a culmination of many hours of research. As a risk manager or insurance client, the book provides valuable insight into the market, products and solutions, business case and types of insurance cover available for every need.
