Hollard is a very well-established and very trusted insurance company
- in fact it is known to be the largest private insurance company in the
country. It operates through a vast network of brokers, and has operations
extending right the way across South Africa, into southern Africa and further
afield in Africa, as well as even wider across the world, including Pakistan,
India, Australia and the United Kingdom. In Africa the countries it operates in
include South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique and Ghana.
Hollard offers all types of short-term insurance, as well as long-term
insurance. It is an insurance underwriter, meaning that it provides insurance
services and products that other insurance companies can market. It not only
operates its own insurance company, but has also been a part of creating other
insurance and financial services companies. It also provides insurance
management consulting services to short-term insurance brokers - it does this in
the form of its brokers division.
Hollard Insurance Website
On the Hollard Insurance website you will find a detailed breakdown of the insurance services they offer as well as company information.
The pre-eminence and quality of Hollard has been recognised in the form of
many different awards. This is highlighted by the fact that it has won all of
the top awards that are bestowed by SASRIA (the South African Financial Services
Intermediaries Association). This includes Best Commercial, Best Corporate and
Best Personal Lines insurance company.
Because Hollard is not a direct insurer (although it does offer direct
financial services), it uses a large and cohesive network of brokers. It
positions itself as an insurance services provider, rather than an insurance
As far as these services go, there is comprehensive motor and household
insurance, which it offers in conjunction with bond originators (banks) and car
providers (motor dealers). When you buy a car or take out a home loan, Hollard`s
services are thus directly available to you at the same time, for complete
convenience. These insurance solutions allow you to insure motor vehicles, your
household contents and personal possessions, as well as cover to insure that you
can pay your debts - financial debt insurance. While there are standard
insurance solutions available, you are also able to take out personalised
insurance packages tailored to your needs.
The other main line of insurance that Hollard provides is business insurance
- commercial insurance through its partner company, Etana Insurance - and
insurance for retailers. The former allows companies to take out insurance
policies to cover things like engineering and other projects, while the latter
allows retailers to take out insurance to cover things like stock and loss of
profits. Finally there are group risk insurance policies for larger employers -
once again through specialist intermediaries.
