Telesure Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd (Telesure) was established in 1998 to house the South African interests of the Guernsey-based international financial services group, Budget Holdings Ltd. The group owns and operates several of South Africa’s leading insurance brands and stands out with its multiple-channel, multiple-brand approach through direct sales, broker sales, aggregator sales and affinity partnerships. All of the companies in the Telesure group target different segments of the insuring public. They are geared to assess the needs of the market they service and provide products and distribution channels to best suit those needs. Telesure is recognised as one of the most profitable short-term insurance groups in South Africa and has never made an underwriting loss in its history. No other insurance group can make such a claim, which is outstanding given the phenomena of the insurance industry’s boom-and-bust underwriting cycles.
