Addressing participants, Mr. Siale said they organized the seminar to equip underwriters of insurance companies with the necessary skills to enable them do prudent and proper underwriting.

“On our part, we pledge in our small way to help build the human capacity of our partners and the insurance market as a whole’’ he stressed.

He added that "It is important to draw the attention of underwriters to the things they ought to look out for to avoid falling prey to unscrupulous individuals and organisations that seek to take advantage of the insurance industry”.


The facilitator of the training, Mr. Ofori-Koragu who has in depth and hands on experience on bond underwriting urged participants to be desciplined in their field of work.
