The insurance industry in Ghana has plenty of reasons for optimism. A favourable economic backdrop and an emerging middle class have helped to boost the sector’s assets, while the World Bank has forecast the continuation of strong economic growth in 2019. Moreover, the country’s insurance penetration rate stands at less than 2%, according to the latest annual report from the National Insurance Commission, which has expressed its determination to capitalise on this latent market potential, targeting a penetration rate of 10% by 2021. The growth of new business lines such as bancassurance, micro-insurance and mobile insurance should help bring this target into reach. This chapter contains an interview with Keli Gadzekpo, CEO, Enterprise Group.
