International Marine Insurance Seminar

International Marine Insurance Seminar

VENUE: Mombasa


In a Global economy, moving goods around the world can be a risky business. Organizations and individuals need to protect their cargo in order to remain in business. A directive by the Kenyan Government compelling local importers, to obtain insurance locally has presented a unique opportunity for insurance players. Kenyan businesses that have been importing goods were rarely thinking about purchasing marine cargo insurance policies locally. It is anticipated that this class of insurance business will grow as the directive and implementation of the law takes effect. Many underwriters are now designing products and putting them on offer to potential and existing customers. An opportunity to get certification through attending this seminar has been made possible by the College of Insurance.
