In March 2009 on the High Street of Accra, a group of gentlemen met to discuss the possibility of entrepreneurial work in insurance brokerage. The discussion centred on the fact that insurance penetration is rather low in Ghana as a result of the lack of credibility in the insurance service value chain and how the team can offer customer centred brokerage services. The team was slammed with the brutal facts of having over 35 brokerage firms already operating in the industry and wondered whether it should give up the dream of creating value for the customer. It was the shared conviction that in the mist of the chaos there is order. The team therefore resolve to care as much about values as victory, as much about purpose as profit, as much about being useful as being successful. With drive and standards arising from somewhere deep inside, RISCOVERY was incorporated on 2nd June 2009 and certificate to commence business awarded on 3rd June 2009.

The Team took inspiration from the wisdom in the words of the great philosopher Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe which say “Until one is committed there is hesitancy, a chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless dreams and splendid plans. That the moment one definitely commits oneself, the Providence moves too”. The Team followed through with the dream to obtain a licence from the National Insurance Commission on 29th April, 2010. Since then RISCOVERY as a company has set off on a mission “to alleviate pain through passionate offering of risk solutions”. For us at RISCOVERY, the mission of our business is to satisfy your need as a customer, and if we fill that need, and fill it well, our relationship with you will blossom. RISCOVERY is certainly on a forward march and we owe it to you our current and potential customers.
