Good insurance covers you when the unexpected happens. Great insurance not only covers your loss, it can also set you (and your dependents) up for a better future.

Ask the experts

Hollard’s short-term and life insurance products have been formulated by experts in their respective fields, people who know you and understand your insurance needs.

What’s more, our experts aren’t simply voices at the end of a telephone line. They’re all over South Africa, in your region, where they understand your particular circumstances, and they can help tailor appropriate and proper cover that suits you best.

At your service

We believe passionately in our local-is-lekker approach, and being able to look you in the eye as we shake your hand. Because we’re old-fashioned that way.

Complementing our expert teams are insurance brokers: the independent people who know you best, offer you the best advice, arrange the best cover for you, and act on your behalf when you need to submit a claim. Hollard’s business model is based on the use of brokers, because there’s still no substitute for great service and advice that you can rely on. We’re old-fashioned that way, too.

We love brokers so much that we’ve launched #LongLiveTheBroker, a multi-year campaign to raise awareness of the very important work they do in keeping the wheels of our economy turning, by ensuring that you and your business are properly covered for when the worst happens.

And local is lekker, no matter where you are. Our Hollard way of doing business is so successful, that we’ve implemented it in all 18 countries where we operate. Like a South African export orange, it’s sought after, first-class – and good for you.

Tailormade solutions just for you

Hollard Insure’s specialist agri team is a bit like a farmer: we make a plan, and we come up with practical solutions. We make decisions that are right, and not only because they make commercial sense.

Our insurance products are meaningful and practical for the modern farmer, and we couple them with our local-is-lekker approach: different parts of South Africa experience widely different agricultural conditions, realities and needs, and we offer localised advice along with our specialist insurance products.

On home soil

That means our expert brokers come to you. No call centres, no distant relationships, no assessing of claims by someone you’ve never met. Our brokers come to your gate, and tread on your soil – they understand that agriculture is so much more than a piece of land and a farm gate.

Whether you’re a start-up, commercial or corporate farmer, we appreciate your direct contribution to the success of our economy, as well as the risks you face. We’re here to help you overcome those risks and reap the rewards of your hard work.
