The Director-General of the Nigerian Insurers Association, Mr. Sunday Thomas, has said it will collaborate with any institution in developing the human capacity needs of the local insurance market.
According to a statement obtained from the association on Sunday, Thomas stated this while receiving a delegation of CICA Re led by its Technical Advisor, Mr. Aristide-Emile Kaneho, at the NIA secretariat.
The delegation discussed ways of training underwriters in some highly technical areas to ensure proper risk pricing and quality service delivery to clients.
Kaneho stated that CICA Re had fully established a stronghold in Francophone countries and was looking at bringing the message to the Nigerian market.
He expressed the hope that with the support of the association, the reinsurance company would achieve its objectives.
According to him, CICA has been conducting training in CIMA region but wants to see what it could bring and get from the Nigerian market.
In the statement, Thomas thanked the representatives of the reinsurance company for their interest in increasing the technical capacity in the industry through training, adding that the association’s major activity was essentially capacity building, advocacy and dissemination of relevant market information to all members.
He stated that technology had broken various forms of regional boundaries which the industry needs to leverage.
He said that CICA Re would remain committed to its desire to show presence and bring value to the Nigerian market.
