During the launch, Commissioner of Insurance Regulatory Authority, Sammy Makove said “We should leverage on these new technology systems to be more profitable in this insurance market. We are proud that Mauritius Union was able to partner with Phoenix locally and we encourage them to continue doing so in order to add more value to our economy.”

The firm is rebuilding capacity to improve customer experience through better platforms of communication and consumption of insurance. The new website is aimed at easing communication with customers and their stakeholder, while improving interactivity with the public and simplifying the course of transactions. This is as a result of the demand for better customer experience from most service providers.
According to Phoenix Assurance Managing Director – Mr. Kris Lutchmenarraidoo “There is renewed energy in our new partnerships and we have reconstituted the board as well. Having been of service to the African market for more than a hundred years, there was a need to employ new avenues to meet our customers demand.’’
