'Hola' Hollard

We might be SA’s largest privately-owned insurance group. And we might be really good at short-term & life insurance, as well as investments. But the most important thing about us is that our people are purpose-driven. Because to us, doing good is as important as doing good business.

Who we are

A brief history of how we got here 

Born in the 80’s, today we’re a Pan-African insurer,  and Mzansi’s largest privately-owned insurance group. We provide life and short-term insurance and investment products to many, many different people. We insure individuals, small businesses and multinational corporates.  We have almost 4  million policyholders. We’re in 7 countries in Africa, and counting. We employ more than 3 500 Hollardites. And in 2022 we posted R25 billion in premium income. 

Loads has changed since we began, but one thing will never change. Everything is about our Purpose. Everything we do, every day, enables more people to create and secure a better future. We may be more than 40 years old, but our story has only just begun.
