Heirs Life Assurance (HLA) has opened 11 additional retail offices nationwide to better serve its growing number of customers across the country.

An excellent customer experience drives the company’s dogged focus on accessibility. Beyond its physical offices, Heirs Life currently offers a 5-minute purchase experience via its website where customers can speak with a life insurance advisor and conclude purchase end-to-end all online, as part of its hybrid distribution channels.

Commenting on the new retail outlets, Niyi Onifade, managing director/CEO, Heirs Life Assurance highlighted that this is a deliberate move to take insurance closer to the uninsured and contribute to moving the scale on the percentage of insured individuals in the country.

He said, “The decision to expand our physical presence across Nigeria was driven by the company’s strategic goal to make insurance available and accessible to all and sundry. These cities present a vast economic opportunity for our intended customers and Heirs Life Assurance Limited wants to be there for them to provide the necessary financial security they need as they live and work”.

Since its launch into the insurance sector in June 2021, Heirs Life has continued to provide simple, quick, accessible, and reliable life insurance, retirement, and children’s education protection plans. HLA offers a wide range of personalised life insurance protection and investment plans that provide financial security to individuals and businesses.
