Reinsurance services

Credit life

Credit life insu­rance is an add-on pro­duct common­ly offered to custo­mers taking out a loan. It pro­tects both par­ties, the borrower and the lender, in the event that the loan cannot be repaid.

When offering loans, how can banks and bancassurers protect themselves against unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances such as the recipient’s death or disability? By offering credit life products alongside loans, these institutions can ensure direct repayment of any outstanding balance, while offering their customers and their families the peace of mind that the debt will be covered after an unexpected trauma.
