ZBCA hails TiB Insurance Brokers and accolades it “THE BEST SERVICE PROVIDER OF THE YEAR 2018’’

TiB Insurance Brokers was awarded the top accolade of being the “BEST SERVICE PROVIDER OF THE YEAR 2018’’ at the ZBCA Annual General Conference which was successfully held in Victoria Falls at the Majestic Elephant Hills Resort Hotels from the 10th to the 12th of October 2018. Commenting upon receiving the Award, the Managing Director of the TiB Insurance Brokers, Mr Charles Mulele said, “We thank God for having been given the opportunity to serve the Construction Industry and indeed having lived to our Vision of being, The Preferred Insurance Broking Firm providing Insurance Broking and Risk management solutions to Businesses. We are truly grateful that the Stakeholders of ZBCA have recognised and awarded our efforts to unlock value to Contractors by providing them access to the Bank guarantees, particularly Bank Bid Bonds without the need for cash cover that has been locking their operational cash flows with Banks for periods of up to 3 months and in some instances 4 months.’’

BACKGROUND TO BANK GUARANTEES PRODUCT In the last quarter of 2017, TiB Insurance Brokers realised that most Employers under Construction contracts had started insisting on provision by Contractors, Bonds & Guarantees that are issued by Banking Institutions as opposed to Insurance Institutions. In response to this demand by Employers, TiB Insurance Brokers arranged several facilities within Banks and are now issuing required Bank Bonds and Guarantees to Contractors, with the Contractor only paying the premium and

THUS ELIMINATING THE CASH COVER COLLATERAL REQUIREMENT. For instance, in a tender requiring a Bank Guarantee of $2 000, a Contractor through TIB will only pay a premium of $300 to get a Bank Bond and not the $2 000 plus establishment fees as is the case with a cash cover facility through a Bank. “We are excited that in 2019, as we are celebrating Our 20 years of service to Business, more Banks are coming on board and this will increase our facility lines to service more members of the Zimbabwe Building Contractors Association at the stroke of an enquiry’’ said Mr Mulele. The following Bank or Insurance issued Bonds & Guarantees are on offer: – – Bid Bonds – Performance Bonds – Advance Payment Bonds – Retention or Maintenance Bonds – Contractors All Risks Insurance – Plant All Risks Insurance – Credit Risk Insurance
