Heirs Insurance Limited (HIL)

This represents a further important milestone in a long-term strategic journey in providing much needed, quality, and valuable financial services, to a broad demographic in Nigeria and Africa.

Insurance should not be a luxury, and just as we have democratised other sectors, we will democratise insurance – applying our tried and tested business philosophies and execution ability.

Fuelled by the determination to improve lives and leave a legacy in the African private sector, we have embarked on this journey to revolutionise the insurance space – deploying technology, customer understanding and operational excellence.

It has been an eight -year long journey, but with the optimism and the resilience that have brought us this far, it has been worth the wait.
