Rob Bygrave, the CFO of Klapton, announced that Klapton had been accepted as a member of the AIO (African Insurance Organisation). He said that this was another step to promoting the name of Klapton across Africa by joining such a respected organisation.
The AIO, which was established in 1972, is a non-governmental organisation recognised by many African governments, with headquarters in Cameroon. The objectives of the AIO are:
a. To develop a healthy insurance and reinsurance industry across Africa.
