Bottom line: the growth in profit for the period appears to be driven by improvement in premium income as well as drop-in claims expenses for the period. 

Speaking on the result, Samuel Ogbodu, Managing Director of the company said the company was able to achieve the impressive performance due to the massive support from the SUNU group, the Board of Directors and its strategic human capital, network, and knowledge of the market 

He added that the Nigerian economy, prompt settlement of all claims with discharge voucher (DV), robust reinsurance facility and the company’s ability to drive operation with technology triggered the result. 

He said: “If a claim occurs, we take it seriously and make immediate plans after assessment to pay. If it is a motor claim, we send our in-house staff and if it’s a large claim, we send a loss adjuster to review it so that we take the necessary steps to effect payment as fast as possible. We pay claims within 48 hours after issuance of discharge voucher”.
