Sovereign Trust Insurance affirmed its commitment in settling claims totalling N2.7b to various insureds across the country.
The just released figures of claims obligated in 2019 affirmed its commitment in settling all genuine claims as and when due.
In a statement, the company’ spokesperson and Head of sales and corporate communications, Mr Segun Bankole, stated that the underwriting firm is not paying lip service to settlement of genuine claims when they occur.
However, he said the claims experience in 2019 was quite commendable when compared to the figure of 2018. He attributed this to the improved claims management process of the underwriting firm which has largely been driven by a robust IT infrastructure.

Motor insurance claims amounted to N537m, while marine & aviation claims stood at N305m. The total sum of N248m was paid as claims on general accident policy with CAR closing the figures with N56m bringing the total claims paid to N2.7b
