The insurance industry in South Africa is increasingly competitive. More South Africans are protecting themselves from potential financial ruin by getting insurance cover. This has created greater opportunities for financial institutions to create specialised insurance solutions designed to assist individuals. This has also meant that more individuals have had the chance to become qualified insurance brokers.
Although the industry is regulated by the Insurance Act, there is a need for further monitoring to ensure that proper systems are in place and to drive quality service provision. The continued change in technology and operations in various industries globally has meant that insurance professional have had to work harder to gain more knowledge, develop skills and educate themselves further.
