A long time
coming, there is finally a South African insurance company that
caters specifically for women. Known as 1st For Women, this
insurance company prides itself on offering women the highest levels
of service in a short-term insurance environment
1st For Women identified a need for a 'women specific' insurance
company ideal for women seeking direct vehicle or household
insurance, without going through an insurance broker.
By eliminating brokers or middlemen, not only has 1st For Women
managed to make short-term insurance more affordable, but has
centralized its operations into a 'one-stop-insurance' operation
where policies can be completed quickly and efficiently over the
1st For Women has also introduced a variety of Assist Programmes and
the successful 'Expo-Sure policy', which covers insured women and
their immediate families in the case of the potential exposure to
the HIV/Aids virus.
A percentage of every premium paid to st For Women is fed into the
1st For Women Trust, a charity designed to make the lives of women
better throughout South Africa.
