We believe this is achievable through the innovation of affordable and sustainable solutions while guaranteeing value for all our stakeholders. Without a doubt, this is the beginning of greater things to come.

“Our focus is on underserved markets as we re-align our service offerings to meet the ever-growing needs of consumers in a heavily competitive digital market. Therefore, through our newly launched innovation hub, we will create and foster new digital automated insurance products, making insurance services accessible, easy to use, meaningful and affordable across all households in the East Africa region,” Too said.

On her part, the Group Head of Brand Marketing and Communications, Sheila Owiti, noted that innovation, especially in the insurance industry, is key to driving progress and growth, and AAR Insurance is committed to fostering a culture of creativity and collaboration.
