Leadway Assurance Increases Focus on Retail Insurance, Takes on Independent Business Associates
In line with strategic plans for the medium term, Leadway Assurance Company Limited is taking on and coaching new Independent Business Associates to work the retail insurance business territory as part of concerted efforts towards entrepreneurial engagement, insurance penetration and awareness.
According to Tunji Amokade, Head of Retail (General Business Commercial), Leadway is taking advantage of the huge potential in the insurance market to invite entrepreneurial members of the public to join their Retail Commercial team via a platform known as “The Opportunity”.
With insurance penetration in Nigeria at less than 1% especially for retail business, Leadway recognizes the huge potential in the retail insurance market and plans to work with over 1000 associates within the next few months, coaching them to grow market share in the retail insurance business territory.
He explained further that new associates may or may not have prior experience but must train to become certified Independent Business Associates (IBAs), over the next year. IBAs will receive training on practical insurance, sales leadership, personal effectiveness in the classroom and on-the-job throughout their career. This is being done in collaboration with BPMSE Consulting to accelerate acceptability and growth through the distribution of best-for-value retail insurance solutions for the individual and SMEs.
