Short Term Insurance in South Africa 2016/17

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.
