The acquisition in Kenya was the first to be completed in May 2021, followed by Uganda in October 2021, Burundi in March 2022, Tanzania in May 2022 and Mauritius in September this year.

In Kenya, the former Allianz Insurance Company of Kenya and Jubilee General Insurance Company of Kenya have become one and now operate under the name Jubilee Allianz General Insurance Company of Kenya.

“We are please to have completed the final transaction in our agreement with Jubilee, thereby cementing Allianz’s presence in East Africa,” said Delphine Traoré, Chief Executive Officer of Allianz Africa.
