A New Dawn

Insurance as you know it is broken and unprepared for the changes we are experiencing in the 21st century. With the impact of COVID-19 and the evolving world of work, we believe it is critical to build a modern insurance structure as we begin to navigate the new world we live in.

Good Things Do Happen

During our development, we were inundated by first-hand accounts of life events: the burden young adults endure to pay health expenses for themselves and family members, the child whose parent wasn’t around to sponsor their education, the devastating impact on a family when a parent loses their job and the communities that are broken because no one was there to support them in their time of need.

However, the incredibly heartwarming story of a young man who was able to graduate from university despite losing his father, the family’s breadwinner at the age of 8 - thanks to his late father’s life insurance cover is further evidence that with insurance, good things do happen.

Our Purpose

To provide insurance with a delightful user experience, amazing value and instant benefits powered by technology, behavioural science and empathy to become the most admired insurance company in Africa and the Emerging World

Proudly Nigerian, For Africa and the Emerging World

Casava is a play on Cassava - a plant that is grown in tropical regions and emerging markets across the world. Nigeria happens to be the world's largest producer of Cassava and it’s the third most important food crop in the tropics, comprising 30-50 percent of all calories consumed in sub-Saharan Africa.

We have the opportunity to capture the essence of Cassava - bringing nourishment and prosperity to the people of Africa and emerging communities

Our Story

Casava story is told through the adversity, perseverance and successes over the past 5 years.
