Zimnat customers can now obtain bureau de change services at selected Zimnat branches across the country, following the establishment of a partnership between Zimnat General Insurance and Access Finance for the provision of these services.

Zimnat offers businesses and individuals a variety of products that include motor insurance, home insurance, life assurance, travel insurance, funeral cover, health and accident insurance, pension schemes, unit trusts and private wealth management.

The group is associated with Sanlam, the largest non-banking financial institution on the continent. Zimnat General Insurance is Zimnat’s short-term insurance division.

Access Finance, which is a specialist Zimbabwean financial services institution that provides fixed income, structured finance and foreign exchange services, launched services to enable customers to buy and sell foreign currency, as well as access foreign currency for business or travel on a willing seller willing buyer basis, as prescribed by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, following the establishment of an interbank market.

The establishment of bureau de change services at Zimnat branches is part of Zimnat’s bid to make life better for its clients by offering them a one-stop shop for various insurance and financial services,” said Stanley Mazorodze, Zimnat General insurance’s chief executive officer.
