Receiving the Cornerstone Insurance delegation, the President of the Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB), Mr. Babatunde Oguntade, used the occasion to commend the company’s continued support for NCRIB over the years. He further encouraged Cornerstone’s efforts at fraternizing with the brokers, assuring that the council will prioritize supporting sustainable business initiatives of its members.

“For us at NCRIB, we promise that we would continue to support all the sustainable programs of our members. It’s not every underwriter that we open our doors to. We are delighted to learn about some of the growth programs of Cornerstone Insurance, and we want to be part of that success story,” Mr. Oguntade said.

Addressing the President of NCRIB, Mr. Alangbo thanked the brokers for their support and reiterated the company’s commitment to efficient service delivery.

“Before now we all know that Cornerstone Insurance has been an innovative, professional organization and we are still maintaining that position. We also want to bring the vision of the founding fathers to light again, by making a difference in insurance. We are very focused and determined in achieving this”.

Alangbo urged brokers to report any genuine outstanding claims that are well documented, ensuring that such claims would be paid swiftly.

“I challenge any broker that has any outstanding claims that are well documented, they should bring it forward. We will pay such claims. Cornerstone has the capacity to pay, and we pay promptly too. We want to partner more with you. This will help ensure the innovative and customer centric posture we bring forward.

On the company’s financial statement, he said “as at the end of 2022 the company’s Gross premium written stood at N19billion while profit was about N2billion.

By the end of 2023 we have moved from N2.9 billion to N18billion in profit as a group and our gross written premium moved from N19billion to N25 billion.
