Altrisk is a long-term risk insurance specialist. It is part of the
huge Hollard Insurance group, as well as having backing from Hannover Life Re
- so its financial credentials and underpinnings are first-class. This is even
more critical in times of financial uncertainty - that you can be assured of
a solid financial backing to the company that you choose as your insurance provider.
Altrisk Insurance Website
On the Altrisk website you can read up on their product offering and download application forms or view their contact details.
Altrisk specialises in life assurance, disability cover and dread disease
cover. It has a thriving underwriting business at its core, and in fact is used
as an underwriter by many other South African insurance companies. Not only
that, but its association with Hollard extends to it being the main underwriter
for that company. As a reinsurer it uses Hannover Life Re, in combination with
the Reinsurance Group of America.
Specifically the products contained in the company`s risk insurance packages
are concentrated on accidental death insurance, along with both general and
deferred life cover (the life assurance component); disability cover that includes
impairment cover and comes with add-ons and premium waivers as optional extras;
dread disease insurance; a flexible risk package that includes income replacement
cover and trauma cover; and female protector, which provides for the specific
risk cover needs of modern women.
Dealing with the company is quick and easy - much of it can be done online
at the company website. You can access a quotes package as well as all the forms
you need for application. Once you are a client, administration, underwriting
and claims forms can be obtained in this way as well.
By focussing on this limited aspect of insurance, the company is able to rationalise
internal operations and administration, and also give better levels of service,
couple with specialist expertise. This makes it a good choice if you`re looking
for something more personalised and specialised than the large general insurance
Rather than take the direct route, the company uses a network of brokers. All
are carefully selected and vetted and you can view all the brokers` accreditations
online. As additional value-added incentives the company offers plenty of promotions
and special offers, so it`s worth a visit to see what`s on offer.
