Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success!

As you may know, the anticipated merger of ARL and Safrican was recently announced. We are excited to share with you that African Rainbow Life will be joining forces with one of our sister companies, Safrican. Safrican is a long-term insurer operating in South Africa since 1932, and the merger of these two entities aligns to our purpose of living the legacy.

Safrican is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sanlam Life Insurance Limited.

The reasons for the merger are as follows:

  • The businesses are complementary in nature: ARL focuses on individual retail policies, and Safrican has over 80 years experience in running Group’s business
  • Public benefit: The merged entity will be best placed to meet the needs of both existing and new customers.
  • Leverage growth prospects: The combination of our two businesses will allow us to grow sustainably into the future and reach even more South Africans.

What does this mean for you?
All our customers will retain their benefits. ARL will continue to honour its obligations and service you in the manner that you have become accustomed to. For now, you may continue to contact ARL, claim and buy our products in the same way as you always have.  We will keep you updated on the merger via regular communication.
