A report by Cytonn Investment puts Kenya Re Insurance in the top as far as franchise value rankings are concerned, while Sanlam Kenya has been ranked last.
Dubbed ‘Kenya’s Listed Insurance Companies analysis report’, the report put Jubilee Holdings second, Britam Holdings third and CIC Group fourth.
Investment Analyst Caleb Mugendi said Kenya Re’s performance was backed by a low combined ratio as well as a high solvency ratio.
On the other hand, Sanlam’s performance was attributed to poor return on tangible equity, low solvency ratio and high reserve leverage among other factors.
“CIC dropped from top position to position 4, affected by a poor return on average tangible equity, low levels of diversification and high reserve leverage,” reads the report.
As far as rankings on total potential returns is concerned, Liberty Holdings was the leader in intrinsic value ranking, followed by Britam Holdings with total potential returns of 21.3 per cent and 20.8 per cent respectively.Despite low penetration of insurance in the country, – 3 percent compared to Africa’s 3.5 per cent – , Kenya ranks high in premium growth globally and is leading in sub-Saharan Africa.

- Uganda: How Cross-Listed Firms Wiped Shs4 Trillion Off Stock Market
- March 31, 2017
Kampala — The interconnectedness of the Uganda Securities Exchange (USE) to the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) has a lot to do with the dismal market performance in 2016.
The market had started the year with a capitalisation of Shs24.5 trillion but by Wednesday December 28, with only two days left to trading, it had fallen to Shs20.3 trillion.
The USE has eight cross-listed firms from the NSE, especially on account of commercial banks in Kenya losing value in their shareholding. Kenya Airways, Jubilee Holdings, Centum Investments, KCB Group, Equity Group, UCHUMI, Nation Media Group and East African Breweries are the eight cross-listed companies.
Cross-listing refers to where company shares are floated on a different stock exchange – in this case, a foreign country – after being listed on the primary stock exchange. In this case, the eight Kenyan companies are listed on the primary market (NSE) but cross-listed on the secondary market (USE).
These companies do have subsidiaries that do business in Uganda.
