Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on insurers in Eastern and Southern Africa

Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on insurers in Eastern and Southern Africa

July 16, 2020    

In partnership with Organisation of Eastern & Southern Africa Insurers (OESAI) and FSD Africa, we have undertaken a survey to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on organisations operating in the insurance sector across Eastern and Southern Africa.

This survey was augmented by 33 semi-structured telephonic interviews with different insurance providers across the continent. In this webinar, we will explore the key themes and findings from this research to better understand the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on SSA insurance markets and how industry players, regulators and development partners can respond to both mitigate the risks and maximise the opportunities arising.


This work forms part of the Risk, Remittances and Integrity programme, a partnership between FSD Africa and Cenfri.
