An Insurer’s response to COVID-19
With the wave of coronavirus (COVID-19) hitting Zambia, the benefits of insurance cannot be over
emphasised. Suffice to say, the local industries, SMEs and policy holders did not foresee the COVID19 related risks that have negatively impacted businesses. Insurance has never been more relevant to
various sectors of the economy as shown in these trying times.
SWAN Insurance Zambia CEO Jean Francois Cateaux has resounded the need for a fresh approach in
offering insurance products to industries and the general public.
“SWAN Insurance is a risk solutions provider that has seen the COVID – 19 pandemic as an opportunity
to be ahead of the curve by innovating fresh insurance products that will suit our clients should similar
events occur in the future,” said Mr. Cateaux.
“These are challenging times and SWAN Insurance cares about its clients. We realise that remote
working is becoming more widespread thus we are spreading our technological abilities to the limit so
as to accommodate for the ‘new normal’ by providing some services online to our intermediaries.
They will be able to access and issue SWAN policies from the comfort of their offices and hence
preventing the spread of COVID – 19,” he added.
Partnerships in this pandemic with other lines of the economy are important. SWAN Insurance has
partnered with a delivery company to enhance the delivery of SWAN Insurance policy processes.
Swan Insurance Zambia CEO Jean Francois Cateaux said: “We are in this pandemic together. Therefore,
SWAN Insurance has partnered with a local delivery company so that clients are provided with policy
documents from the comfort of their homes and at the convenience of their office. The general public
are gradually adapting to these virtual meetings. We have given clients the convenience of using this
platform to consult on our range of policies on offer,” Mr. Cateaux said.
“SWAN Insurance strives to assist clients during this pandemic when struck by incidents and we have
up scaled our services to settle valid claims quickly for the benefit of our clients,” he added.
SWAN insurance has since Partnered with Zambia Red Cross Society to fight this pandemic by donating
essential materials such as 1000 face masks, 10 boxes of 12X450ML Hand washing liquid, 9 boxes of
12X450ML of hand sanitizers and 10 drums of foot operated hand washing basins so that they facilitate
the delivery of these items to communities in deprived regions of the country,” Mr Cateaux explains.
In line with safeguarding its staff, SWAN Insurance has implemented health guidelines provided by the
Ministry of Health by practicing social distancing, regular disinfection, wearing of face masks, sanitizing
and using video conferencing tools within the company and with its clients.
“As part of our business continuity plan, half of our staff were present in the office while some staff
worked from home on rotational basis. Swan insurance remained open throughout the pandemic
period. A new COVID-19 company policy was also introduced to promote a safe working environment
for our colleagues” the CEO explained.
CEO Cateaux said that insurance should give clients the peace of mind they require by providing them
with a safety net in terms of protecting their possessions and property and paying claims on time even
throughout this uncertain period of the pandemic.
