Swan General Ltd
Established in 1855, SWAN is the leading financial solutions provider in Mauritius.
The Company provides the full range of non-banking financial solutions — general insurance, life assurance, pension & actuarial services, pension administration, investment advisory, wealth management and stockbroking for corporate clients and individual customers. It has eight branches across the island: Port- Louis, Grand Baie, Flacq, Ebène, Black River, Beau- Plan, Curepipe and Rose-Hill.
The Group lives by its core values: passion, people and performance and put people at the center of their business.
SWAN is driven by a single unifying idea: that only when you know you are protected and your future has been provided for, can you progress towards your personal vision of prosperity. Swan calls it the pyramid of prosperity, comprising four pillars:
- Protect: protecting your possessions and property
- Provide: providing what you need for the future
- Progress: supporting your financial needs at every stage
- Prosper: achieving financial freedom
As a corporate citizen with deep roots in Mauritius, SWAN acknowledges the role it must play in achieving a more sustainable world. Its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme is one way to help achieve that goal. CSR initiatives focus on: Education and training, Environment, Health, Leisure and sports as well as Socio-economic development. SWAN partners with carefully selected non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working towards building a better future, particularly for the most vulnerable people in the society.
The international presence began to grow in 2006, when it acquired a strong minority stake in a leading Seychelles insurer. The international footprint has expanded since then. The Company later launched captive reinsurance operations for large corporate and institutional customers across Africa. Swan has been managing insurance activities in Madagascar and Comoros since 2013.It is now also present in Zambia and Rwanda
