Life Insurance has been identified as the most important and effective savings mechanism that assured all workers of a healthier and less stressful retirement.
It has however, been identified that in spite of the boom in the insurance industry, a wide gap, due to poor knowledge of insurance products and their benefits, still exist within various people and sectors of the country.
Ms. Patience Dowuona-Hammond, Life General Manager of Donewell Insurance Company Limited at a two-day training workshop for Marketing Officers of the Company on Thursday, called on Ghanaians to change their perception of insurance and rather cultivate a culture of saving through life insurance.
She said Insurance was the most effective and trusted saving mechanism that assure good and quality lifestyle after retirement and other unforeseen events and should be recommended as a necessity for all.
The re-training programme, which was aimed at refreshing and enhancing the knowledge of the Officers on the various insurance products of the company, further provided a platform for them to share their challenges on the field and how best to solve them.
Mr. Edmund Diamond Addo, Assistant Life Manager of the Company said though insurance dealt with risk management and sharing, it was the safest investment every individual could make and recommended that the public took it very serious.
