We trust that you are doing well and keeping safe during the COVID-19 season.
Over the last few weeks of lockdown we have all had the opportunity to reflect
on our business processes and personal lives.

“Not just going through this season however growing through this season”.
Learning from our mistakes, successes and looking for possibilities and
other opportunities.

We have reviewed and assessed our services, looking at ways to expand them
that will provide you, our client, with that holistic financial service offering.

Our first priority was to look for a partner that is aligned with our values and will
add value to our existing range of quality products and services.  We are
therefore very excited to announce that we have partnered with a short
term service provider that has an international footprint and which has been
trading in the United Kingdom since 2017.


Short Background:

– Byron, the owner and director, holds a Masters Degree from Kings College,
is a UK Lawyer and a Chartered Insurer with the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Byron has been in the financial industry since 2005.

– He has worked for Lloyds of London as a Lloyds Underwriter and directly in
the Prime Minister’s Office, working for the Minster of Transport, on the
UK Government’s Digital Transformation Agenda.

– He was part of the Premier Insurance Consultants and started his own short
term insurance solution in the United Kingdom in 2017 where he decided to
move the 24/7 call centre to Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 2018, supporting
the UK clients.

the FSCA (FSP Number: 50056) to expand the service offering to the
