Press release

The AccessKenya Group has announced their partnership with insurance provider, AON Minet Insurance Limited. This partnership will be based on their home internet service, [email protected] and home insurance product respectively.

The alliance will see [email protected] target potential internet buyers that wish to have home insurance as a value add to their Home Value package.

“Clients will be able to sign up onto the Value package at two rates. For KSh 4,200, one will receive home internet as well as home insurance worth KSh 500,000. While for KSh 4,700, one will enjoy a home internet package as well as home insurance worth KSh 1 million,” said AccessKenya’s Group Managing Director, Mr. Jonathan Somen.

Mr. Somen added that the partnership was necessitated by home owners who were looking for home insurance at a cheaper price. Taking into account that the conventional market rate for a home insurance package of a sum insured of KSh 500,000 comes to an average of KSh 6,000 per annum, AON Minet’s alliance with AccessKenya will be a welcome relief to home owners as they will only be charged an average of KSh 3,000 per year; half the amount.

This is one of the various ways that AccessKenya is using to meet the increasing demand for home internet with a potential of 300,000 homes, only 6% of which has been tapped.

“Our partnership with AON Minet will see home owners purchase home insurance at a significantly subsidised price,” adding that “AccessKenya will be footing all the initial expenses of one’s home insurance package.”

“This is a great achievement for the AccessKenya Group as we steer the company towards forging new alliances and partnerships that will further improve the value proposition to our current and future clients,” said Somen, adding that the package was also open to the Group’s existing residential clients.

With a wide range of comprehensive services and products to offer, AccessKenya has been at the forefront of forming alliances with major players from the corporate sector, like Barclays Bank, Housing Finance and now AON Minet, giving the Group’s clients more value for their money.
