Now in its sixth year, the Journalism Awards target business journalists from Anglophone and Francophone countries in Africa and aims to recognize and acknowledge the good work of media on the continent. Sponsored by Continental Reinsurance, the Pan-African Re/Insurance Journalism Awards recognise the outstanding work of journalists on re/insurance from across the continent. Successful candidates have to demonstrate how their articles have raised awareness and understanding of the re/insurance sector in Africa. The awards are an extension of Continental Reinsurance’s continued commitment to the advancement of excellence in the industry. The Pan-African Re/Insurance Awards were launched in April 2015.
Continental Reinsurance Plc was incorporated in 1985 starting business as a private reinsurance company in Nigeria. From January 1987, we began operating as a general reinsurer and then became a composite reinsurer in January 1990, offering both treaty and facultative Life and Non-Life reinsurance, with a well-diversified business mix and customer base.
With a history spanning more than 30 years, we pride ourselves on being the torch bearer of the African Reinsurance sector, developing an extensive network of offices to reach our clients across Africa. From our Nigerian base, we have grown a diversified Pan-African portfolio, adding value wherever we go, and developing enduring partnerships premised on our Pan-African Commitment made local.
