Global broking business Brokerslink continues to strengthen its presence in Africa with the announcement of a new strategic partnership with African insurer SUNU Group.
Brokerslink’s brokers and their clients will have access to exclusive wordings and health insurance plans with management delegation, and to SUNU’s specialist knowledge of local markets, multiple regulatory regimes and business cultures.
The partnership will build on SUNU’s and Brokerslink’s strong mutual presence in a number of the Francophone countries in Africa and enable SUNU to expand its distribution relationships into more countries across Africa.
Anne Collette, Director of Business Development for Brokerslink explained the importance of this new strategic relationship:
“As we continue to strengthen our presence in Africa, we felt it was important to partner with an insurer that shared our philosophy and had the expertise and capabilities to support our brokers in delivering excellent products and service to their clients. We have worked with SUNU for many years and so they were the natural choice to establish this strategic partnership.”
Mohamed Bah, Deputy Director for SUNU Group added;
“It became increasingly clear from our existing work together that Brokerslink which, is a unique, ethical and efficient organization, was the ideal partner for SUNU Group. We want to anchor this partnership in the long term and are committed to supporting each of Brokerslink’s brokers and their clients on the African continent.
Brokerslink AG is a wholly independent business with a unique structure. Brokerslink combines a global broking company with a worldwide broking network. It provides its independent partners (shareholders in the company) and affiliates (businesses which have the option to become shareholders) in over 113 countries with professional, innovative risk management and insurance expertise, international market connections, and world-class consulting services.
Brokerslink and its shareholders own and manage a network of independent brokers and risk consultancies comprising about 18,000 professionals.
Incorporated in Switzerland, cross-shareholdings between Brokerslink and its partners make its combined value much greater than a loose association of independent firms. Shared equity among and between Brokerslink partners creates a unified purpose and vision which does not compromise the independence or local focus of each partner firm. Brokerslink currently has 55 independent shareholders from 40 countries on five continents.
A significant portion of Brokerslink’s clients are multinational or complex organisations seeking support in risk assessment, risk management, and the design and placement of cost-effective insurance solutions. Our unique offer is founded on Brokerslink’s comprehensive multi-local experience and leading-edge risk services, and our ability to deliver them anywhere in the world.
