Globe Reinsurance Plc

IANDA Limited

IANDA Limited was formed in 2003 with the insurance and reinsurance needs of the emerging markets very much in mind. This was particularly so in terms of the African market. Historically, the large reinsurance brokers had shown a tendency to visit Africa, pick the low hanging fruit of the large risks and then leave until renewal.

This was a very disrespectful way to conduct business and some of the major broking houses have even left the Continent at a time of great change.

IANDA Limited has been set up to provide insurance buyers with attentive, personal advice as well as forming the bridge to a major broking house. This provides the best combination of detailed service, strategy setting, coordinated broking with real market influence.

We value the two way dialogue as well as your business.
