Constantia Insurance poised for growth through its acquisition by Trustco Group Holdings | Insurance Chat

Exciting times ahead. Johannesburg – Trustco Holdings (Trustco) announced on 9 December 2019 that it has made an offer to purchase the insurance and related business operations of the Constantia Group (Constantia) from

Trustco Group Holdings


TRUSTCO is once again expanding its investment portfolio by offering to acquire all the shares and claims held by Constantia Risk and Insurance Holdings and Conduit Ventures for ZAR 2 000 004 232 (Two Billion Rand), making it one of the biggest cross-border acquisitions by a Namibia company in recent years.

Trustco Group Holdings (TGH), through its subsidiary Legal Shield Holdings (LSH), planned to expand its insurance business regionally, which will now be achieved through this transaction. Significant synergies exist between the two entities - Constantia services traditional insurance markets in South Africa while LSH services the micro insurance market in Namibia.

As such, numerous opportunities exist for the newly combined entity to consolidate their respective skillsets and create cross selling opportunities. Furthermore, the strength of the LSH balance sheet will enable new growth prospects for Constantia. Both entities have attractive business models and high growth potential, and it is envisioned that as a collective they can create even more substantial sustainable value.

The Managing Director of TGH, Dr Quinton van Rooyen, described the transaction as a huge vote of confidence in the capabilities of Namibian businesses, even in a challenging economic climate. With the economies of both South Africa and Namibia in a perceived state of paralysis, austerity seems to be the preferred political choice of growth, but Dr Van Rooyen remains convinced that austerity does not equal or ensure prosperity.

“Only by going on the investment offensive -- especially in the face of economic adversity – will sustainable growth be ignited, and wealth creation secured in such a way that it will trickle throughout all layers of society.”
Dr Van Rooyen said, “It is a reminder that Namibians will have to work their way out of challenges and that having the best policies will not be enough. The best policies must be implemented and pursued vigorously if we are to improve services and enable wealth creation for all. Only then will we have the sustainable development that feeds the various economic streams and needs of the people, both in Namibia and South Africa.”

LSH is the flagship Trustco subsidiary, with Trustco Resources flexing its muscles with diamond assets in Sierra Leone and Namibia. LSH is a diversified financial services provider in Namibia with a client base of more than 280,000 members. Its clients consists of individuals and small businesses.

LSH currently holds both a short and long-term insurance licence, and a commercial banking license is held by the banking segment within TGH. LSH recently applied to the Bank of Namibia to acquire the banking segment of Trustco, after which it will be able to provide a full spectrum of services across the financial services value chain in Namibia. It is also the owner of over 4,000 hectares of high-quality real estate assets in Namibia.

The LSH Investments portfolio consist of among others the distance education unit, the well-known Institute for Open Learning (IOL) as well as several high-profile property developments, namely Lafrenz, Farm Herboths and Elisenheim, in and surrounding areas strategically located in the economic heartland of Namibia’s capital, Windhoek.

Constantia offers a range of niche insurance and risk management solutions in South Africa, covering areas such as medical malpractice cover, primary health insurance and medical gap cover products, funeral and life insurance, guarantee and indemnity solutions, medical evacuation insurance and niche motor and property lines. It operates both in the short term and long term insurance markets and has access to substantial growth opportunities if capital is made available.

At the end of its last reporting period, Constantia held assets of ZAR 2.1 billion, Capital and Reserves of ZAR 699 million, recorded Revenues of ZAR 2.1 billion and a Loss after Tax of ZAR 582 million.

Conduit Ventures owns a number of subsidiaries that offers insurance adjacent services to Constantia, as well as other insurers. These services include software solutions, risk management solutions and claims related services.

At the end of its last reporting period, LSH (including the proposed Banking and Finance segment acquisition) held assets of NAD 5.8 billion, Capital and Reserves of NAD 2.1 billion, recorded Revenues of NAD 1.5 billion and Profit after Tax of NAD 900 million.

Dr Quinton van Rooyen, Managing Director of Trustco Group Holdings, says that amongst the many accolades and international breakthroughs that Trustco achieved, none makes him more proud than the Deloitte “Best Company To Work For” award. Shortly after the announcement, Dr van Rooyen spoke to Informanté Radio from the Group’s headquarters, in the Namibian capital Windhoek. He encouraged companies to enter the Deloitte “Best Company To Work For’’ survey as it objectively evaluates the state of the workforce which is most important for sustainable success.



Staff Reporter
Trustco Group Holdings is Namibia’s 2019 Best Company To Work For according to the respected and internationally recognized Deloitte’s Best Company Survey. The results were announced at a prestigious event this morning in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia.
This makes it the sixth consecutive year that Trustco ranks amongst the top three Namibian employers after the company won consecutively in 2015 and 2016.
FirstRand Namibia came in second in the large company category behind Trustco, while in the small/medium company category, the Road Fund Administration was victorious as the only company to achieve the required scoring threshold in this category. All the winners achieved a gold standard of excellence.
The Group Head of Corporate Affairs, Elmarie Janse van Rensburg, dedicated the award to the more than 900 staff members of the group and expressed gratitude to the Boards of the different Trustco segments whose guidance and support to management contributes to overall sustainable success.
In a statement at the event, Deloitte pointed out that “The Best Company Survey” has been a Deloitte initiative in Namibia for almost a decade, continuously undergoing review and re-design to ensure best practice research methodology in order to gauge both employee attraction to and engagement with an organisation.
This year the survey was conducted under the theme “maximising the power of your people”, with the survey delivering strategic insight for increased effectiveness centred around a company’s employees. It offers the ability to understand how employees perceive the current workplace environment in an effort to determine where improvements can be made and equally, what attributes can be celebrated.
According to Priscilla Husselmann, Human Capital Lead for Deloitte, the new approach to change allows for faster decision-making; it is dependent on information (data) and provides reliable and insightful trends and patterns as the change journey advances.
With a strong brand amongst HR professionals, the Best Company survey remains a reputable source of comparable data for companies and the competition remains an esteemed annual event attended by Managing Directors and HR professionals across sectors and industries.
Deloitte Country Managing Partner, Ramsay McDonald, explained that the survey acknowledges that attraction and engagement are intrinsically linked and are necessary in gaining a complete picture of what attracts and retains an employee, versus how it impacts and affects levels of discretionary effort. Therefore, the survey is comprised of two parts:
The survey provides comprehensive and insightful reports, with dynamic reporting through access to the Deloitte Portal, which allows participants to take immediate responsive action. The survey also includes 100% coverage of employees broken down in five demographics, including job role, tenure, age, race and gender. The survey is conducted in Afrikaans, English and Oshiwambo to ensure good comprehension levels.
