Allianz, one of the world’s leading insurers and asset managers, has become the majority shareholder in Jubilee Insurance Mauritius Limited, purchasing 66% of shares in the company (equivalent to 3,554,275 ordinary shares).

This transaction consists of Allianz acquiring 51% of ordinary shares from Jubilee Holdings Limited (JHL) and all shares previously owned by the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED).

JHL will retain an 8.37% stake in the company and a further 25.63% through its subsidiary, the Jubilee Investments Company Ltd.

This is the fifth and final transaction envisioned by the agreement announced on September 29 2020 by Allianz and JHL.

We thank the regulator and everyone who has been involved in the entire process. We look forward to pooling our synergies to enhance product offering and customer experience to our mutual clients across all fronts.”
