We pride ourselves with our relationships with both Clients and Reinsurers.

Shirley Naidu – Marketing & Events Co-ordinator

We recently held our second in-house reinsurance training at our offices. It was a half-day session, which we offered to our valued clients. Due to COVID -19 protocols, limited seats were available. Nevertheless, it was great to get back some normality to catch up with delegates, whilst we grabbed a cup of coffee. 

The Training was done at Oak Tree’s cost. The session was co-presented by a well-known Reinsurance specialist, Hayley Schell from Swiss Re. She focused on Basic Reinsurance – Fundamentals. Hayley spoke about understanding the Laws of insurance and also explained the basic theories of Reinsurance.

Hayley’s talk was followed by a presentation from our vibrant Analytics team consisting of Tanus Bot and Jenna Prinsloo, who spoke on Randomness and Probability and how it relates to Insurance and Reinsurance Pricing. They kept the delegates captivated by creating a spin board game with amazing prizes! 

The session was closed off by Gordon McKean, Oak Tree’s Managing Director. Each delegate received a certificate of attendance. Thereafter we broke for a meal. What is a good training session without delicious food?!? (and a glass of wine)?!? 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients for coming out and making our day a great success!  

The good news is that we aim to host these half- day sessions on a quarterly basis with various speakers on a variety of topics. 

Oak Tree Intermediaries is a proud member of the Insurance Institute of South Africa, therefore these training sessions will be CPD accredited.  

Stay tuned!
