I am a business owner

“When insurance is acquired with clear understanding of the conditions under which the promise will be fulfilled, there’s comfort. When clients know they have a policy that protects them, and that their assets are safe from harm, there’s relief. And when this policy is purchased for a fair fee, explained clearly and structured in consultation, comfort and relief are accompanied by peace of mind.” – Insurance Zone

It’s no secret that business makes our hearts beat faster; that commerce gets our juices flowing. That’s why our central area of focus is commercial business – from SMMEs to large corporates – where we offer engineering and building products; agriculture, marine and wildlife cover; and cover for hospitality and allied industries.

We believe there’s more to insurance than providing adequate cover; more to business than a quick buck. Insurance Zone combines the old-fashioned classical values of Professionalism, Reliability, Integrity, Dignity and Enthusiasm (PRIDE), with the most modern technology and support available. What’s more, we’re one of Hollard’s largest Broker Market partners and Hollard is a corporate shareholder.
