GNI targets more penetration with retail products

GNI targets more penetration with retail products

Underwriting firm, Great Nigeria Insurance Plc has re-launched affordable retail insurance products to deepen insurance penetration.

The products were borne out of the need to assist policyholders even at the grassroots level to mitigate risks at a pocket-friendly rate.

The products, which include: GNI Motor Flex, Great Savers Delight (GSD), GNI Fireproof and Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) have been duly approved and certified by the industry apex regulator, the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM).

These products were borne out of the need to offer more benefits to policyholders at an inexpensive cost, especially during this current economic situation in the country.

Cecilia Osipitan, managing director/CEO of Great Nigeria Insurance Plc, mentioned that the GNI Motor Flex, Fireproof and Personal Accident retail products are designed to protect the lives and properties of both the insured and the third party in crisis in the form of monetary compensation while the Great Savers Delight is an investment-linked savings plan developed to promote savings culture.
