Zimbabwe Insurance Brokers Limited (ZIB) has been in existence for more than two decades and is currently the only ISO certified broker in the country having been formed in 1985 by the then ZimRe, the largest reinsurance company in the country. It has grown to be among the top players in the insurance broking industry, with offices in Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru and Mutare. This was achieved through creativity, innovativeness in business retention and development as opposed to mergers and takeovers.
Since formation, the company has experienced phenomenal growth through adopting competitive strategies which has made it one of the largest locally owned insurance broker and a pace setter in the market. In 1994, ZIB was converted into a Public Company through a secondary listing conducted via the Post Office. In 1995, ZIB setup Reinsurance Brokers International (RBI). In 2006, ZIB was ISO certified through the Standards Association of Zimbabwe and to date re-certificated by the same board under the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System, making it still the only broker that has this certification in the country. This is a symbol to its market that the company will always continue to dedicate its operating processes and systems to maintain international standards in servicing its clientele.

In its simplest form, Risk Management means knowing at all times:
What your risks are.
What they mean in financial terms.
What can reasonably be done to eliminate or reduce them.
What financial resources you have to absorb them economically.
What Insurance is necessary for the potential catastrophes, which remain.
This approach should form the basis of your Protection Plan. The principles are the same for all enterprises, big and small. Insurance must not be looked upon in isolation as the only real answer to risk. It is conditional and its effectiveness depends on many factors in which the human element plays a vital part. It is a financial system, which, in itself, is incapable of meeting all losses. Human Life, loss of time, lost opportunities for profit and loss of goodwill are but a few examples. Consequently, insurance is better bought last when all other risk management techniques have been adopted. Only then can one expect to secure protection in the fullest sense.
If Risk Management is to be a sound foundation to your protection, top management must be seen to identify themselves with its objectives. The greater the degree of self-insurance, the greater the importance of risk improvement as a basic responsibility. This service is offered free of charge to our clients
