The technological forum-IMIDS is a reservoir of data designed to provide insights and trends on the motor insurance class of business and it will be available to all the insurance companies.

This will be a key resource when it comes to making key decisions regarding motor insurance and curbing fraud. Tumbo said the event is a celebration of top performing insurance sales agents and companies for the year ended 2017. “A total of 293 insurance sales agents were able to meet the rigorous prerequisite criteria to qualify as top performers in the industry. 67 per cent of the qualifying agents were women.” Other winners at the competition were Anastasia Muthoni from Britam Insurance who was recognised as the agent who brought in the most business.
