In 2003, a small group of like-minded enthusiasts took the first step toward realising their dream of taking Namibian insurance to another level by challenging the industry norm. Since that day, Hollard Namibia has grown substantially, not only in size, but also in capacity for knowledge and passion. It is no stretch to say that the face of the local insurance industry has been changed forever.
Namibia is a vast country, whose stunning landscapes are matched only by the beauty of its people. As proud Hollardites, we know that by understanding the uniqueness of its people we can make a difference where it matters the most. Humility and sincerity are two of the core elements governing how we operate, emphasising the fact that we are a company built on a strong moral and ethical foundation. We are genuine at all times, but, thanks to a culture that encourages individuality, we can also be a little quirky.
Our goal is to not merely to succeed as a company, but to always find the best ways and means to stand by the people who matter the most. We are a company built on Namibian soil, by Namibian people, for Namibian people!
As part of a multinational insurance group, Hollard Namibia’s purpose is to enable more people to create and secure a better future. That is why today, our 15th birthday, stands for more than mere milestones reached, difficulties overcome and perseverance shown. Today represent 15 years of standing firmly behind what we believe and never straying from our mandate.
Hollard Namibia has grown from simply hoping to make a difference, to being Namibia’s largest privately owned insurance group, with the original handful of enthusiasts becoming 164 dedicated team members who understand that a “can do” attitude goes a long way.
From having a handful of products available to the market, Hollard Namibia now offers one of the most diverse business profiles in Namibia. Our tally of 279 000 in-force policies continues to grow day by day. Recently we introduced Namibia to new products such as VAPS (value added products), and the much-anticipated Hollard Travel/Tourism product, all of which have been designed to offer our clients the peace of mind that they need to dream fearlessly, without the worry of what tomorrow might bring.
From one solitary dot on the vast Namibian map, we have painted the country purple with seven branches all across Namibia. The branches are located at Rundu, Tsumeb, Oshakati, Otjiwarongo, Walvis Bay, Mariental, Keetmanshoop and our head office here in Windhoek.
Today might be our special day, but we choose to celebrate you, the Namibian people, for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to grow from strength to strength every day. We will continue to push the boundaries of our industry, always looking for new ways to ensure better futures for each and every Namibian.
As a purpose-driven organization, we believe that we will achieve exceptional, sustainable and inclusive growth by partnering to deliver the win-win-win, by treating all Namibians with care and dignity, by courageously pursuing a better way, and by catalyzing positive and enduring change. In doing so, we hope to be recognized one day as Namibia’s favorite insurer!
