A.G: What can you tell us about the insurance market in Ghana ?

Martin Amoah (M.A): The insurance market in Ghana is a young and budding one compared to the international industry. Notwithstanding that, the industry is competitive and buoyant. Unlike the international market, Ghana’s premium sales have increased by over 25% annually and are still rising because ghanaian society is getting richer and with that comes the need to insure. With less than 3 years in the market, Allianz Ghana is gradually becoming a household name in terms of corporate insurance and our international reputation leads the way.

Insurance from A-Z

nsurance is as old as human society. It began in the informal sector when economies were more primitive. The insurance in such economies entailed agreements of mutual aid. For instance if one family's house was destroyed the neighbours were committed to help rebuild it. Granaries housed another primitive form of insurance to indemnify citizens against famine. It is the remnants of these insurances that have survived to the present day. In today’s commercially diverse world, any risk that can be quantified can potentially be insured. Allianz are one company that have acquired considerable experience over the years and are today a worldwide giant of the insurance industry.

Group History

A

llianz AG was founded in February 1890 in Munich by two banks, two industrialists, a lawyer, a banker, a politician and an insurance expert together with Carl von Thieme and Wilhelm von Finck. It had an initial capital of four million marks. Just three years after its formation in 1893, Allianz made inroads into the international markets and opened an office in London.

“In 2010, Allianz collected feedback from over 1 million customers more and more customers recommend Allianz to friends.”

www.enjoyaccra.com

By the beginning of the first world war, the company had expanded their operations to the USA, the Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, France and the Balkans. The strength of Allianz as a corporate entity rests with the fact that as a company they have been resilient and lived through two world wars and further through their use of automated data processing and modern information technology as far back as 1926 and 1956 respectively. In 1990, Allianz expanded further into eight Eastern European countries. In the same decade, Allianz also acquired the Fireman’s Fund, an insurer in the United States, this was followed by the purchase of Assurances Generales de France (AGF), Paris. Enjoy May 2012

Mr Patrick Prado & his team Allianz Ghana

These acquisitions were followed by expansion into Asia with several joint ventures and acquisitions in China and South Korea. Around this time Allianz expanded its asset management business through the purchase of for example asset management companies in California. In 2006, Allianz AG became Allianz SE thereby becoming a European Company or Societas Europeas (S.E) a new legal form for public companies in the European Union. This enabled the group to simplify its structures and would facilitate future cross-border mergers. Allianz SE was the first European Company on the Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50. e

Allianz Ghana

A

llianz SE's local subsidiary Allianz Ghana Ltd started operations in Ghana in December 2009 and is fully owned by the Allianz Group. With just a little over 2 years in Ghana, Allianz has made considerable inroads into the insurance market and is becoming a reputable name in Ghanaian insurance circles.

As of 2011, Allianz Ghana had registered an annual turnover of over GHc 10 million in its second year of operations. The company is therefore poised for greater returns on investment in 2012. Allianz Ghana aims to become the most trusted insurance company in Ghana and doing so based on international values and strategies. e

So for Barry Callebaut, working to ensure a sustainable cocoa supply chain is an imperative, not an option. In Ghana, Barry Callebaut is engaged in various social activities that will not only benefit cocoa growing communities but their own employees. A housing project called "Barry Village", largely financed by the company, offered 54 employees the chance to become homeowners. Trust Fund : one dollar per kilo produced is saved in a fund. It is now more than $ 55 000 per year which is allocated by Barry Callebaut Ghana to various social projects in the fields of health and education in cocoa growing areas : school construction, HIV awareness programmes in schools, postgraduate scholarship in medical fields, support to local hospitals, health facilities, eye clinics to name but a few.

School Commissioning On April 25th 2012, a new 3 classroom block, including 4 offices and desks/chairs for teachers and children was opened in Odaho. The keys of the school built by Barry Callebaut were handed over by Loïc Biardeau to the Ashanti Regional Director of Education GES, in the presence of Mr Adu, Director of Basic Education GES.

I wish to render my sincere gratitude to Barry Callebaut for the wonderful gesture and to wish them well in their endeavour to support the Government's effort at providing quality education in the country, especially, in the rural areas. It is my hope that the school will provide opportunities for the improvement of education in the Odaho community.” e

One on One with... H.E Frédéric CLAVIER (French Ambassador)

H.E Frédéric Clavier, French Ambassador

“My high point would be the 6 years I served with the French presidency. Here I learnt about how national decisions are made, national cohesion is maintained and how a government plans to have their national influence increased internationally.”

CLAVIER

Thank you, as an ambassador, this is my first posting to Africa however I have held other portfolios for the French Government on the continent. Ghana has struck me with its cultural, tribal and regional unity in diversity. Ghana has a strong political class, business leadership and vibrant elite with strong backgrounds who are leading the developmental agenda of this country, I am therefore grateful to be living these moments in the history of Ghana personally.

A.G: What is the role of the French ambassador in Ghana? (Considering it’s an English Country)

F.C:

I

n the wake of a hugely succesful Francophonie week, we bring you an exclusive interview with H.E Frédéric Clavier, the new French Ambassador to Ghana. He is a career diplomat with degrees in law and political science. He is a Counsellor Hors Classe at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and has served over 20 years in various offices. The new French Ambassador believes in hard work, dedication and rewarding these. He is an avid art lover (does some paintings himself as hobby) and loves cigars. He has been married for over 22 years to his wife Chantal and together they have two girls and a boy.

The Franco – Ghana relationship is not a new one and France has always had representation here. The presence of France in Ghana indicates the importance that we accord to Ghana and its people. There are over 60 French companies incorporated in Ghana.

I caught up with him at the residency and asked him a few questions.

Alain GBEASOR (A.G): Good Morning Sir, welcome to Ghana and thanks for the opportunity. I understand this is not your first post in Africa, How is Ghana treating you?

A.G:

H.E Frédéric Clavier with his family

The ambassador and his team are present to help increase the bilateral relations between the two countries as well as enhance co-operation.

A.G: How are Ghana French relations and can you tell us about some of the projects being undertaken by France in Ghana?

One other vision I’m passionate about, is to popularize the learning and teaching of the French Language. Ghana has a deficit of 4000 French teachers; my vision is to help bridge this gap and facilitate access to the the French Language.

F.C: France has a lot of interests in Ghana; there are 5 Alliance Françaises in Ghana and we invest over 240 million Euros in projects through the Agence Française de Development with over 1.3 million Euros in direct investments in Ghana annually. There are many French Government projects in Ghana, categorized into the political, co-operative, economic and educational spheres.

A.G: As ambassador, do you have any particular vision that you wish to achieve in Ghana?

F.C: Ghana is a country rich in culture, history and the people need to jealously guard their political and developmental journey. My vision is to contribute to the achievements the country has made in its developmental agenda and help move them forward. Enjoy May 2012

Flamenco dancer, one of H.E's personal paintings

A.G: The Francophonie week has just ended; I need to congratulate you on the record participation of the diplomatic community this year… How did you achieve this?

F.C: Thank you; the Francophonie is not just about celebrating culture, technology and education but also politics. Member countries of the Francophonie share in equal values of human rights, freedom, www.enjoyaccra.com

What profession would you have chosen, had you not been an ambassador and how long have you served at the Foreign Ministry? What were some of your high moments?

F.C: That’s an interesting question; I will say am a career diplomat and hence my education and professional development has been in that direction. I entered the Foreign Ministry service in 1987 and have served in various portfolio since then. My high point would be the 6 years I served with the French presidency. Here I learnt about how national decisions are made and national cohesion is sustained as well as how government plans to have their national influence increased internationally.

A.G: Your Excellency, what are your hobbies?

F.C: In my scarce free periods, I love to play golf, tennis, read or do some painting.

A.G: And finally any message to our avid readers?

F.C: My message to your readers is to encourage them to love Ghana more, strive for peace and national development. e

Pat the dough into a square on the parchment, then roll into an 11-by15-inch rectangle. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet and brush off the excess flour.

almond extract; pulse until smooth. Cover and chill 1 hour. Make the streudel: Mash the confectioners' sugar, flour and butter in a bowl with a fork to make clumps. Cover and chill until ready to use. Butter an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Spread the almond filling over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border; sprinkle with the chocolate. Starting from a short side, use the parchment to tightly roll up the dough, brushing off the excess flour. Pinch the ends of the roll, then twist several times. Fold the twist in half so the ends meet. Twist the folded dough again and place in the pan. Cover with buttered parchment; let rise in a warm place until puffy, about 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Brush the loaf with the beaten egg, then sprinkle with the streusel. Bake until the bread is golden and springs back when pressed, 1 hour to 1 hour, 10 minutes. Loosen with a knife, then let cool in the pan, 1 hour. Unmold onto a rack to finish cooling.

Your energy is on the increase this month, dear Aries. This is the time to get back on track with a diet or fitness plan and with work projects things that may have stalled in the past few months. It's an excellent time for discovering alternative health methods and applying them. Do some work on your finances by looking back, reviewing, and researching. Love is not as straightforward from mid-month. People from the past figure strongly in your life. Transportation issues crop up near the end of May. More activity with siblings or neighbors is likely now.

Solutions for May

HARD

May is a month to shine, dear Taurus, but not necessarily to act on a new idea. Research and incubate ideas so that you'll be ready to go forward with them in July. Romance is moving forward at a quick and stimulating pace. Going after what and who you want comes especially naturally, particularly on the 13-14. A close partner may have an outpouring of emotions around the Full Moon on the 5th. Financial matters take center stage from the 20th. Money matters can be tricky now, as adjustments to spending need to be made.

Gemini 22/5-21/06 You benefit from lovely Venus moving through your sign until August, dear Gemini. This position accentuates your finer, more attractive qualities for all to appreciate. Nevertheless, you can be undecided this month, gathering your energies and weighing your options. Your emotions frequently turn your attention to the past and unresolved matters, until the last week of May when you're inspired and motivated to chase your dreams. Deal with any work problems that arise around the 5th with a cool, logical approach. Don't hide yourself away from the 20th forward, when opportunities to make your mark arise quite suddenly. 44

22/12-20/01

While May brings a busy schedule and lively agenda, dear Cancer, emotionally you can be quite focused on the past and in need of some quiet time. New friendships are likely to be formed this month, and learning endeavors tend to thrive. Your career requires more movement and communication this month ďż˝ such as spreading the word, lectures or speaking, promotion, and selling your ideas. The 5th can bring romantic revelations or drama in the life of a friend. A friend can open a window of opportunity for you, so pay close attention and stay connected.

Matters of personal finance can be quite strong this month, dear Libra. A loan, bonus, refund, or mortgage may come through, and a partner, if applicable, might enjoy a pay raise. It's easier than usual to work out problems through healthy conversation this month. Feedback from others can be very helpful. However, love matters can become complicated after the 15th. You may be indecisive or especially concerned about weighing your options. Energy levels are not at their peak this month. Listen to your body's signals to get extra rest.

While you have a well-deserved reputation for working hard, dear Capricorn, this month you're more inclined to choose pleasure over work whenever possible. This is a good thing, as it helps to feed your spirit. However, you may need to watch for errors and backtracking in your work. Your social life tends to be quite busy in May. Your romantic life is likely to be animated and pleasurable overall, although you are better off living in the moment rather than making longterm plans if you're starting a new relationship this month.

Watch for distinct opportunities to advance your career interests or improve your social standing this month, dear Leo. Improved organization and a winning attitude towards what you believe you're worth are at the root of these. Recognition for your talents is forthcoming now. Be vigilant when dealing with associates from mid-month, as there can be some hidden resentments or problems brewing. Be a team player. Similar challenges might surface with a current friend. For some of you, a friend from the past can resurface in May or June.

Others can make big demands on your time this month, dear Scorpio, but for the most part, your involvement is pleasant and rewarding. Personal plans tend to take the back seat in favor of the agendas of friends, children, or a partner. Your social life is animated and relationships are mostly happy in May. However, avoid divulging too much information to a co-worker or acquaintance in the first week of the month. Finances are generally strong, but you could experience delays revolving around money owed to you from mid-month forward. Joint money and property matters are in need of review.

Home and family life are in strong focus this month, dear Aquarius. The domestic life is busy, mostly pleasant, and rewarding. It's a good period for strengthening ties with those closest to you, particularly on the 12-14. The 5th can bring a domestic project to fulfillment or completion. While love relationships tend to be pleasurable overall, there can be some backtracking or reticence experienced from mid-month forward as Venus begins retrograde motion. You can also encounter delays with regards to travel or educational plans. Review all of these matters, but enjoy yourself in the process.

20/02-20/03

May is a strong month for success in promoting, publishing, courses, and schooling, dear Virgo. It can also be good for travel and getaways. Breaking the normal routine can certainly boost your spirits. Career and reputation matters can be tricky from mid-month forward, especially if you mix business and pleasure. You may be rethinking your career direction or business connections and partnerships. While delays can be experienced now, your career is expected to take off in coming months. All month, you're more assertive and independent, and your powers of attraction run very high.

May is potentially the strongest month all year for career prospects and recognition, dear Sagittarius. Hard work pays off and others recognize both your efforts and your natural talents. The only caution here is to avoid taking on more than you can handle, as your enthusiasm and optimism can cloud your judgment. Avoid making promises that will be difficult to fulfill. Close relationships may become complicated from mid-May forward, when unresolved issues from the past reappear. Talking through problems is favored now. A more logical and less emotional approach works best.

May is likely to begin on a busy note, and end on a more peaceful one, dear Pisces. You are communicative and sociable, reaching out to others and enjoying the connections you're making. The last week of May, however, brings a stronger desire to enjoy the peace and security of family life, and less interest in venturing far from home. Your relationship with a significant other is likely to be animated and at times strained. Perhaps you feel that not enough attention is paid to your own needs and plans. However, the 12-14 can bring opportunities to strengthen your bond with others through team work and communication.

TIPS

Eat while you drink It is particularly good to eat high protein foods such as cheese and peanuts, which help to slow the absorption of alcohol into the circulatory system.

Cultivate taste Enjoy your drink, don’t rush it. If you gulp a drink you will be losing the pleasure of tasting and smelling the various flavors in the drink.

Accept a drink only when you really want one At a party if someone is trying to force another drink on you, ask for ice or drink a non-alcoholic beverage.

Know your limit Skip a drink now and then Space your alcoholic drinks out to keep the desired blood alcohol concentration.

Appoint a designated driver Have someone available who will not be drinking and will drive all drinkers home. This is critical if the person has consumed more than one drink per hour. If you know that you will have to drive after consuming alcohol, limit your consumption to no more than one drink an hour.
