Speaking after the handover ceremony Old Mutual Life Assurance Managing Director Roy Punungwe said Old Mutual believes in continuous learning hence the sponsorship to IIM.

Punungwe said the Quiz competition will provide space for knowledge sharing, networking and collaboration which is critical for continued growth of the Insurance Sector in the country.

“As players in this industry, we need to be challenged by the low penetration of insurance which currently stands at 2.5 percent to become more innovative in raising awareness about the importance of insurance and how it contributes to national development.

“It is encouraging that IIM is leading in this quest to raise awareness through events like the Insurance Quiz which we have been proud sponsors and we are now in the tenth year. We had challenges to execute this sponsorship during the COVID pandemic but we are excited once again that the environment now safe for us to gather again for the IIM quiz,” said Punungwe.
