It is therefore our delight that we continue meeting our client’s needs and giving them convenience.”

Some of the unique features also include a comprehensive policy that insures goods against loss or damage, Caters for legal liabilities for general average and rescue where applicable whilst on transit by means of the specified conveyances (sea, air or land) within the geographical limits and conditions specified in the policy.

The move comes at a time when a new law compelling importers to buy policy from local players came into effect in January 2017. The directive is seen as one meant to boost the insurance penetration in the country which currently stands at 3 per cent.

The Kenya Maritime Authority Acting Director General-Mr. Cosmas Cherop commended Resolution Insurance for demonstrating their willingness to tap into the rich marine industry adding that they are working to support the new product and ensure that the new Resolution Marine Cargo serves its intended purpose.
