Insurance has given hope and relief to the dreams of many, and its role in our society, businesses, and personal lives continues to grow.  Altfin has recognised this and  strives to meet the expectations of its customers. Altfin Insurance is a 100% wholly owned subsidiary and flagship of Altfin Holdings Limited. The parent company also has full shareholding in Altfin Life Assurance and Altfin Health Insurance Company. Altfin Insurance is one of the most celebrated and notable brand in Zimbabwe when we talk of insurance.  A brand one cannot afford to ignore in the short term insurance industry.

It is one of Zimbabwe's leading short term insurance companies and is ranked amongst the top five brands in the insurance industry. The Altfin brand came into existence after the merger of then Orion Insurance Company and Strategies Insurance Company in 2003. The merger created a much stronger organisation with broader capabilities that gave clients access to virtually every conceivable short-term insurance product available on the Zimbabwean market. A national distribution network is a key success factor in insurance. The expansion of Altfin was consolidated in the opening of branches in Bulawayo in October 2003, Gweru and Mutare in 2004 and Chinhoyi in 2005.

Altfin Insurance is focused specifically on offering its clients a wide variety of highly specialized insurance products and services. These specialized products and services are tailor-made to meet different insurance needs for different clients. Altfin insurance ensures that the clients fulfill their goals by focusing on their core business instead of insurance.
