According to the company, this is part of its planned expansion into the rest of Africa.

However, financial details about the transactions have been not disclosed.

The acquisition forms part of Liberty’s strategy of growth into Africa, which has a growing number of people who can invest in insurance to protect their wealth and assets.

Charter Insurance has a five percent market share in Malawi while Liberty is majority-owned by South African lender Standard Bank, which has also expanded its presence on the continent in recent years.
