  2. Service Centre Number 2 : Group Employee Benefits & Pensions Consultancy
  3. Service Centre Number 3: Individual Life Financial Planning

Speaking at a Press conference at CBZ Wealth Managing centre on the 26th of January 2016, CBZ Holdings Group Chief Executive Officer Mr Never Nyemudzo made the following remarks:

We believe that the incorporation of CBZ Risk Advisory marks the continuation of the Group’s successful portfolio & earnings diversification strategy. In fact, with the non-banking subsidiaries’ contribution to the bottom line already at 18%, against a long term target of 20%, we believe that CBZ Risk Advisory Services will significantly aid the Group’s drive to diversify its earnings mix.

Is this the right time? Is it the right investment decision? How will it fit? Who will it serve? What will be the contribution to bottom line?

It is no secret that despite their notably short history, our two insurance business units (CBZ Insurance and CBZ Life) have already made significant inroads into the Zimbabwean market.

  • In fact, CBZ Life is widely regarded as one of the fastest growing insurance companies in Zimbabwe.
  • CBZ Insurance has an impeccable underwriting track record, ranking among the top 3 short term insurers in terms of profitability, in spite of a smaller premium book.
  • However, a closer look at the dynamics in the insurance sector, in particular, and the evolving economy, in general, naturally calls for a further strengthening of our insurance portfolio through investment in infrastructure that supports the distribution channels, product development and customer interface. Our desire is to leverage on our investment in both technological and physical infrastructure to offer our customers an unparalleled opportunity to do business with us through the most convenient way to them.

It is, therefore, against this background that we are introducing CBZ Risk Advisory Services (Pvt) Limited he concluded”
