Imperial is part of the massive Imperial Holdings company that has interests
in a number of different industries, most notably the motor industry and the
financial services industry. It has successfully leveraged its steady and strong
market share in the fleet management market to gain an almost equally strong
foothold in the insurance market - primarily in motor insurance of course. This
also means that it can combine its various products and services to create
insurance packages that offer very good value for money, and that are well
tailored to individual needs.
Imperial not only operates across South Africa in its entirety, but its
operations have also expanded to cover a large swathe of Southern Africa, as
well as further afield, all the way to Europe and the United Kingdom. It does
this via a number of affiliates and subsidiaries, that include Regent Insurance
in South Africa. This is the main thrust of its insurance operation in this
Imperial Insurance Website
The website provides information on Imperial Holdings' diverse range of businesses as well as a link to their insurance site.
As mentioned above, the company concentrates on providing various types of
motor insurance, including vehicle breakdown insurance. The core focus is on
motor insurance, through its subsidiary, Regent. It is an extremely solid
financial services company, with an annual turnover of more than R1 billion - so
you can be very confident of its solvency and underwriting strength when you
take out a car insurance policy. Rather than just providing an all-encompassing,
one-size-fits-all type of insurance product, the company offers different
insurance services, products and packages that you can choose to fit your
requirements. There are also plenty of value-added services associated with
these policies, like breakdown and medical assistance.
The other central areas of operation, besides personal vehicle insurance, are
commercial and fleet insurance, and car financing shortfall insurance. Due to
its size, Imperial can service very large corporate motor fleets with relative
ease, and it`s a market leader in this. Vehicle financing shortfall insurance is
quite a new and highly popular area of insurance. It allows you to take out a
policy that will cover any shortfall on the cost of paying off your car should
it be written off, for example.
With such a large presence, such a good reputation and such financial muscle,
this is definitely an insurance provider that you need to contact if you`re in
the market for car insurance - as an individual car owner or a fleet manager.
- Personal vehicle insurance
A varied line of motor vehicle insurance that covers cars, watercraft,
caravans and trailers and other forms of personal transport - including lots
of value-added offerings.
- Commercial vehicle insurance
Insurance packages that can be tailored to suit corporate vehicle and fleet
insurance needs - including plenty of value added benefits.
- Vehicle finance shortfall insurance
These are insurance policies that are designed to cover any shortfall
between what you still owe on your car and the amount that your normal
insurance policy pays out.
