The Hollard Group

World-class insurance company, rooted right here in Africa

The Hollard group (Hollard) is South Africa’s largest independent, privately-owned insurance company that was launched in 1980, when a small group of like-minded entrepreneurs decided the time was ripe to offer a new brand of insurance: One that looked at fresh ways of addressing risk protection; one that put clients’ needs first; and one that would give shape to a deep-held conviction that doing well in business should also be about doing good.

Our core approach has always been to partner with industry experts who share our values and to leverage our joint capabilities to deliver innovative, fit-for-purpose insurance solutions.  And we’re proud to say that, by staying close to those founding objectives and rooting them in solid, long-term partnerships, the Hollard Group has become an Afro-global insurance brand with more than 10 million policyholders, operations across four continents, and assets exceeding R23 billion. 

Today, as our products and services continue to resonate with market needs, we continue to grow … but, wherever the future takes us, a strong connection to our African roots and culture will always be a big part of who we are.

Hollard provides short-term insurance, life insurance and investment products to a customer base that ranges from individual consumers in almost all income categories to large commercial and corporate clients. We have expertise in almost every class of insurance and, as well as collaborating with brokers and insurance specialists, we also work closely with financial service providers, retailers and affinity groups.
