Underwriting Philosophy

Africa Re’s mission is to underpin the development of insurance underwriting capacity, local premium retention and professional skills in insurance and reinsurance markets. We do this exclusively in Africa and other selected developing territories.

This focus enables us to make a meaningful contribution to development initiatives in collaboration with like-minded partners and other key stakeholders. Our key territories are:


We operate in every African country, through a network of expertly staffed regional offices, and two subsidiaries for Southern Africa and Retakaful markets. To locate the regional office that serves your location please click on our contact page.


Our operations in the Middle East are carried out by the Cairo Regional Office. South East and East Asian markets are served by the Ebene Regional Office.


In 2013, Africa Re began underwriting operations in Brazil through the Mauritius Regional Office.

Our rock-solid financial credit ratings underline our capability to meet the reinsurance needs of our clients.
