Leading corporate trustee, Axis Pension Trust Ltd and top Life insurer, Hollard Life Assurance, have partnered to offer insurance backed pensions featuring free life insurance cover to clients of the Trust.
The add-on service is the first of its kind in Ghana aimed at giving Ghanaians additional comfort while inspiring growth in pension and insurance coverages.
The partnership was launched in Accra at a short ceremony at the Marriot Hotel highlighted by the presentation of a cheque to the first beneficiary of the life insurance cover, John Awuni.
Mr Awuni received the cheque as a beneficiary of his late wife, who was a teacher in the western region and a member of the Axis Personal Pension scheme.
Chief Executive Officer of Axis Pension Ltd, Afriyie Oware, said as a leading pension provider, Axis Pension Trust is committed to remaining at the cutting edge of its services.
He said the company aims to ensure that 40 per cent of Ghanaian households achieve financial peace of mind. Mr Oware explained that the free pension-linked life insurance cover is a testament to the commitment of the partners to deliver superior value through innovation.
“The partnership between Axis Pension Trust and Hollard Life will be a source of hope in a time of uncertainty and further advance our mission to inspire the African worker to achieve financial peace of mind,” he said.
Managing Director of Hollard Life Assurance, Nashiru Iddrisu, said he was excited to see the partnership already being impactful.
He said it was strategic and core to the purpose of Hollard Life to enable more people to create and secure a better future for themselves.
Mr Iddrisu said with this partnership, retirees can enjoy peace of mind and financial security because the insurance cover on their pension will enable them to sustain the standard of living of their loved ones in the event of their death or permanent disability.
“Insurance-backed pensions are a positive disruption of the industry in our collective bid to improve Ghanaian lives such as Mr Awuni’s.
