AVBOBABC OF BEE
AVBOB Funeral Cover is the largest Mutual Assurance Society in Africa, and provides specialist funeral insurance and burial services under one roof. The company was founded in 1918 and will be celebrating its Centenary year in 2018.
A Mutual society entails that AVBOB has Policyholders rather than Shareholders. AVBOB has more than 1.7 million policyholders and currently insures 4.9 million lives. The attitude of its 6000+ employees is one of the factors that played a huge role in AVBOB’s successes over the years.
The Group has three operating divisions: AVBOB Insurance, which offers a comprehensive range of funeral policies; AVBOB Funeral Service, which offers an affordable one-stop in funeral services, and AVBOB Industries which manufactures coffins, wreaths, and funeralware. AVBOB has an extensive national infrastructure consisting of 280 offices.
