As a leading offshore provider, Unilife specialises in developing and providing effective, insurance-based solutions for individuals and companies around the world. We accomplish this through our market leading products, and our world class partners.

We work in conjunction with some of the world's most respected names in global insurance - organisations such as Guardrisk Life International Ltd., SCOR and Gen Re - which provide us with the means to minimise our clients' costs and risks. At the same time, these partnerships allow us to deliver the widest variety of insurance options, tailored specifically to our clients' needs.

Guardrisk Life
International Ltd.

All Unilife individual and group policies are issued by Guardrisk Life International Limited. Guardrisk is a wholly owned subsidiary of MMI Holdings, who are listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, have operations in 18 countries, including South Africa, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and Singapore, and employ over 17,500 staff worldwide. Both Guardrisk and MMI are rated 'Aaa' by Moody's.

Our distinctive relationship with Guardrisk enables us to draw on its wealth of financial and specialist insurance facilities, providing us with access to services such as:

  • underwriting reinsurance
  • claims management
  • regulatory compliance
  • capital and wholesale markets
  • international risk financing facilities
  • investment and accounting functions

This results in lower administration and management costs to us - leading in turn to lower premiums for our clients, as well as a greater range of insurance and financial products than would otherwise be available. Thus we can pass on the advantages of our partnership to you.
