KEY FOCUS & OUTCOMES:

  • For the general insurance business, a 59% decrease in operating profits was driven by: inflationary pressures on motor claims, where severity of motor claims increased significantly. The number of claims returned to pre-pandemic levels, with the cost of claims increasing due to the depreciation of the Mauritian Rupee and rising inflation. 
  • The 19% growth in Gross Written Premiums of Life Insurance was driven by a robust increase in the protection product segment. The strong rebound of Profit After Tax to Rs 290m significantly exceeded the pre-pandemic levels of Rs 185m recorded in 2019.

Combined ratio = 109%

KEY FOCUS & OUTCOMES:

  • Obtain approval for the amalgamation of Saham’s general insurance business with MUA Kenya, and the transfer of Saham’s life business to Sanlam Life. The approval was granted in June 2021.

  • Amalgamation of Saham Kenya and MUA Kenya teams. All Saham Kenya employees were transferred to MUA Kenya, effective from 1 August 2021. Harmonisation of the polices will continue in 2022 and 2023.
