A public forum to discuss the relevance of insurance to protect small business owners from the damaging effects of financial liability is slated for July 15.

Dubbed “Is Insurance relevant to traders,” the forum seeks to make insurance accessible to traders, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and commercial businesses.

To be held at the Rawlings Park in Accra Central, the forum as part of the season three of H.Insured series by Hollard Ghana.

The public financial education series will feature representatives from key trader stakeholder groups in Accra and other institutions.

Financial inclusive

The Group Head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Hollard Ghana, Cynthia Ofori-Dwumfuo, in an interview in Accra, said this initiative forms part of the insurance groups' effort to build a financially inclusive and sustainable community.

“Since the inception of our H.Insured platform two years ago, we have transitioned from solely virtual events during the heat of the COVID-19 pandemic, to hybrid ones featuring live panels and livestreaming to bring insurance closer to Ghanaians everywhere.

“Sticking to our passion of making the discussion of insurance jargon-free and relatable, we are focusing our attention on stakeholder groups at the core of our commercial and social lives.”

“At Hollard Ghana, we aim to enable more people to create and secure a better future through educational platforms like H.Insured, our Streetwise financial literacy series,” she said.

Constance challenges

Ms Ofori-Dwumfuo stated that “We understand the risks traders face and their constant challenges of perils like fires.

“So, we are bringing together key representees of trade groups and insurance gurus to have a frank conversation about what it takes to insure traders. It promises to be engaging,” she said.

She said interested participants could pass through this much-anticipated event at the Rawlings Park this Friday, in the morning, at Accra central.

“Also, we will be streaming the session live via Facebook at Hollard Ghana.”
