Continental Reinsurance is the private sector champion of the pan-African reinsurance industry. We engage in the life and non-life reinsurance business across the continent.
Our mission and vision
With a history spanning more than 30 years, we have developed an extensive network across Africa in order to serve our clients. Everything we do is underpinned by the translation of our pan-African track record and commitment into local value.
Our vision is to be the premier pan-African reinsurer.
It is our mission to provide credible reinsurance security and services to our clients and sustainable value to our shareholders and other stakeholders.
Incorporated in Nigeria in 1985, Continental Reinsurance started business initially as a private reinsurance company. From January 1987, we began operating as a general reinsurer and in January 1990, we became a composite reinsurer, offering both treaty and facultative life and non-life reinsurance, with a well-diversified business mix and customer base.
As part of our overall goal to become the recognised leading reinsurance company in Africa, we converted to a public limited liability company in 2000. We recapitalised to NGN 10 billion in 2007, with widespread ownership which includes international investors. On May 30, 2007, Continental Reinsurance was listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.
We continue to operate as an international company managed by seasoned professionals, complying with international standards in all our business dealings.
