Minet celebrates 75-year legacy

As published on times.mw on November 8th 2022

Insurance broker, Minet Malawi, is this month celebrating milestones during the 75 years it has been in business.

Formerly known as Aon, the company celebrates five years of trading as Minet and its 75- year legacy of offering risk, reinsurance, and human capital solutions to Malawi and other African countries.

Established in 1947 as JH Minet, the firm has over the years become Africa’s trusted risk adviser and Aon’s largest global network correspondent, according to Minet Group Chief Executive Officer Joe Onsando.

“It is heart-warming to see our group, a truly pan-African player with a diverse African footprint, owned and led by Africans, being in a position to celebrate a legacy spanning 75 years on the continent.

“This is an affirmation of the tireless efforts our team has put into building and growing the company into Africa’s number one leading risk advisory firm whilst also insuring the health and livelihoods of millions of people across the African continent,” Onsando said.

Commenting on the ever-increasing need for risk advisory services, Onsando said the world is going through a paradigm shift on many levels, and the importance of professional, qualified and forward-looking advice has become crucial in securing financial security for businesses.

He said managing risks and costs is critical as the inter-connectivity of traditional and emerging risks means organisations can no longer evaluate individual risks in isolation.

Minet Malawi Managing Director Delvin Khongono said being a member of the Minet Group, the firm affords clients in Malawi access to a trusted and composite risk adviser, specialising in an array of industries and sectors.

Khongono said the firm has a foundation which was established to play an active role in improving the lives of the people in communities where Minet operates.

“The foundation focuses on education, health care and building sustainable communities and is aimed at making a lasting and measurable impact,” Khongono said.
