Accra, July 30, GNA – Mrs Esther Osei Yeboah, the Managing Director of Imperial General Assurance, has urged Ghanaians to adopt practical measures to reduce uncertainties in business and human life.
This, she said, they could do by signing on to insurance policies to protect their properties against risk of any eventualities.
Mrs Yeboah told the Ghana News Agency in Accra that many people do not recognise the need for insurance until they encounter misfortunes in life.
She said it is for this that Imperial General Assurance does not compromise on the quest to provide the best assurance products to guarantee security and a sound mind for its customers.
She said houses, vehicle and other successful business built over the years are some of life’s greatest investments, which must be guarded and protected with utmost jealousy.
“Businesses, homes, and other general possessions one acquires in life are meant to serve as some form of guarantee for ensuring a stable and comfortable life.
“The question, however, remains on how fortified these life guarantees are and what the assurance is that our possessions will continue to provide the stability and comfort we as modern human beings so desire,” she asked.
She said “incomes are low and, therefore, having an insurance policy does not fall on the priority list of most people”.
She also added that although there had been series of education on insurance, many people do not bother to make an attempt to insure themselves and their properties.
She said her organisation for the past years had contributed significantly to the growth of the Ghanaian insurance industry through the provision of a myriad of sound non-life insurance products and services.
She said at Imperial General Assurance, the core values of integrity, honesty, empathy, respect and accountability are deeply entrenched in the day to day execution of our operational duties.
