  Africa poised to become digital insurance leader: Oliver Bäte

Oliver Bäte, CEO of Allianz SE, opened the 44th annual Insurance Conference in Sun City, South Africa, with a keynote address on the conference theme "Disrupt, Debate, Deliver". In his speech, Bäte addressed the profound transformation of the insurance industry wrought by digitalization.

In Africa, where the Group is already present in 16 countries, Allianz will focus its digital activities on increasing customer reach in key growing markets, where insurance penetration is still low, and efficiency in markets with higher penetration.

“Insurance companies have much to offer to the African economy. Digitalization allows us to gain considerably better insights into our individual and institutional customers and thereby to better serve their needs. We believe deeply in Africa’s huge long-term growth potential and we will leverage our global footprint and extensive expertise to strengthen our market position and to attract African talent,” Bäte said.
