As South Africa’s largest privately-owned insurance group, the Hollard Insurance Group includes The Hollard Insurance Company and Hollard Life Assurance Company. Established in 1980, our group provides short-term life insurance as well as investment products to a diverse customer base, including individual consumers, commercial entities and corporate clients.
We are purpose-driven and measure our social dividends alongside our shareholder contributions. Since inception, partnership has been at the heart of our business model, with the group today boasting over 100 ventures across the insurance value chain. Each one supports our purpose of enabling more people to create and secure a better future.
Headquartered in Parktown, Johannesburg on a campus that houses the historic Villa Arcadia, our group touches more than 6 million policyholders in 18 countries on four continents. We employ more than 4 000 people across the globe and posted R18.1bn in premium income in the year to June 2016.
Purpose and culture
Hollard’s purpose is to enable more people to create and secure a better future.
By achieving exceptional, sustainable and inclusive growth; by partnering to deliver the win-win-win; by treating everyone with care and dignity; by courageously pursuing a better way; and by acting as a catalyst for positive and enduring change, we will be the favourite insurer in each country in which we operate.
Of course, none of this can be achieved without a supportive culture. And our culture, which we call the Hollard Way, is something that we’re passionate about and something that every Hollardite lives every day.
The Hollard Way asks us to balance the need to deliver and get things done, with the need to dream, pioneer and experiment. It recognises that we are one big team, made up of real and mindful individuals. It encourages us to find the win-win-win for Hollard, our partners and our customers, and to get the balance right for ourselves. It asks that we get the facts, but listen to our gut. Perhaps most demandingly of all, it asks us to take what we do seriously without taking ourselves too seriously.
As a result of all of this, as a Hollard customer you can expect to be treated with respect, dignity and above all, a sense of common humanity. We expect to be held to the highest standards and whilst we certainly can’t claim to always get it right, we try our absolute best to deliver on your expectations.
