Discovery Business Insurance


About Discovery Business Insurance

Discovery was founded in 1992 with the purpose of making people healthier and enhancing and protecting their lives. Over the years this has evolved into a sophisticated shared-value business model that operates in the health insurance, life insurance, investments, banking, and short-term insurance markets. The various applications of our shared-value insurance model in 19 countries have given us unique insights that we are able to apply to our various business offerings.

Discovery Insure was founded in 2011 with a vision of creating a nation of great drivers through shared value, by incentivising clients to improve their driving behaviour and benefit from lower premiums. The insurer benefits from lower claims and lower lapse rates. Society also benefits from safer roads for all.

In May 2018, Discovery Business Insurance was launched with a vision of building better businesses. We understand that different businesses have different needs. That’s why we provide comprehensive, yet flexible, the insurance cover that is tailored to each business and considers the unique risks businesses face in a modern, fast-paced world. Our business insurance offering is driven by technology and built on a model of shared value.
