ABOUT THE DIRECTORS
Margaret (Margie) Allison has served the Short Term Insurance Industry for over 40 years having worked in all aspects of the business. She has worked for an Insurance company and built her experience in Underwriting and Reinsurance for 7 years. Since then, she has worked for both Medium and Large Corporate Insurance Broking firms gaining further knowledge as an Intermediary and Accounts Executive – dealing directly with clients.
Finally with wings to fly, she left Glenrand MIB in 1993 to start her own business and has never looked back. After several acquisitions of smaller broking firms and merging with Yourinsurance Brokers in 2008 owned by a London based Lloyds Syndicate and Business Entrepreneurs, the business has grown successfully over the years. She managed to steer her ship from a Telesales focus to a service oriented philosophy which is the preferred focus of providing a personal service and close relationships with her clients.
She has achieved her Insurance Qualification of ACII (British) by examination in 2004 which was later converted to the SA equivalent (ASII) to comply with local FSB requirement under FAIS.
I am Lauren Anderson, and I was brought on as a Director of YiB in 2018 and I am a proudly South African Optimist who loves what I do. I believe that insurance is not a product, but rather a relationship between YiB and our clients. I have worked in the Industry for more than 15 years, 10 of those along-side Margie. I am passionate about life in general and I believe that happiness is about living intentionally.
