Also, the Managing Director of EVOLUTICS, Miller Kingsley noted that the company is focused on solving problems facing the insurance industry based on its more than 16 years of industry experience and is designed to help insurance companies adapt their services to customer needs.

The business was set up with the aim of solving some of the problems that we faced when we were in the industry including issues that hinder the scalability of insurance in Nigeria and what is very clear to everyone world in the industry right now is that the future of insurance in Africa would generally come from the retail segment, although this segment is very transactional.
