UT launches Insurance subsidiary

Prince Kofi Amoabeng - CEO of UT Holdings

UT Holdings has taken another step into the Financial Market, launching onto the market its insurance business with a pledge to commit to customer satisfaction and innovation in product design.

UT Life Insurance Company Limited aims at targeting the informal sector using non-traditional methods of selling products to create wealth.

The Managing Director of UT Life Insurance, Mr Tiibu Aziz Rayamah, said the company has through hard work  and innovation been able to raise its stated capital to GH¢3.5 Million from less than GH¢1million within a period of two years.

He said the goal of the company is to improve the public perception of insurance in the country, adding that innovative distributive channels would be explored to reach out to clients.

UT Life Insurance Company Limited (formerly Golden Life), was established in 2006 following the passage of the Insurance Act in 2006 (Act 724), which required all composite insurance companies to separate their life business from their general business.

This led to the establishment of CDH Life Assurance Company Limited in 2008 from the then CDH Insurance Company Limited now NSIA Ghana.

In 2009, a new institutional investor bought into CDH Life and with majority shares changed the name of the company to Golden Life Assurance Company Limited until its acquisition in 2010.

UT Holdings, and thus changing the name to UT Life Insurance Company Limited to be consistent with the names of other UT subsidiaries.

The launch of UT Life Insurance Company brings the subsidiaries of the UT Group to six comprising UT Bank, UT Logistics, UT Properties, UT Collections, UT Financial Services – Nigeria and Germany.

    Great idea as I have met too many Ghanaians who don`t have life insurance. Having spent the last 25 years in Barbados, I must say it is important to insure your property as well as your life. Insurance is about wealth creation and preservation.
