FBNInsurance: Digital Innovation can help build trust in the Nigerian insurance industry

Nigeria’s insurance market boasts huge potential, but it is difficult to unlock because of the lack of trust between customers and insurance providers. FBNInsurance believes technology is about to change this. With a young population and a rapidly growing middle class, Africa presents huge opportunities to insurers. But so far, this potential has been relatively untapped. In 2016, the whole continent of Africa represented only 1.5 percent of the global insurance market. The insurance penetration rate is particularly low in Nigeria. There are a number of reasons for this, but perhaps one of the most significant is a lack of trust in insurance providers.

FBNInsurance believes the way to warm Nigerians to the concept of insurance is to build trust and enhance transparency through digital innovation. World Finance...Read more
