African reinsurers meet to sharpen skills

As a way of encouraging investment into the local insurance industry, First Mutual Reinsurance Property and Casualty (FMRE P&C) Botswana last week held a two-day market training session at Masa Centre for various players within the local insurance and reinsurance industry.

The training was held in conjunction with Tanzania National Reinsurance Company (TanRe) which brought experiences from the East African market while FMRE has a wealth of experience within the Southern African Development Community (SADC) market.

The two seasoned reinsurers brought expertise and fusion of ideas that should be of great benefit to the local market. The training focused on specialist lines, including professional indemnity, directors and officers' liability, and medical malpractice. FMRE P&C managing director, Ian Taonesa, told Mmegi business that the basis for this year's training was prompted by the fact that the specialist lines market is still evolving in Africa while it is more common in the developed North.
