NAIROBI Feb 3 Jubilee Insurance, a subsidiary
of Kenyan group Jubilee Holdings (JUB.NR), plans to expand into
central, west and north Africa, tapping 12 new markets by 2014.
The insurance firm, listed in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda,
also said on Thursday it would invest in Kenya to deepen its
agency network countrywide and make premium payments easier.
"The expansion ... is geared towards giving Jubilee an
African footprint, and follows the consolidation of its business
in east Africa," it said, without naming any countries it
planned to venture into.
Jubilee Insurance, east Africa's largest composite insurer,
also has operations in Mauritius and Burundi.
