Insurance players in the country have underscored the need to invest more in pure term insurance product to increase its uptake. 

A pure term insurance plan is a type of insurance policy that provides death benefits to the policyholder's family.

According to the CEO Jubilee life insurance Kumar Sumit Gaurav, the uptake of the product is very low due to little information the public has about it.

Kumar made the remarks while recognizing the top-performing Jubilee life insurance agents and Unit Managers of 2023 at the Jubilee Club Membership Annual Convention.

Agents and Unit Managers were awarded for their efforts and excellent work for the past year 2023.

This happened at Sheraton hotel Kampala during the annual Jubilee club membership convention on Friday 9th February 2024.

The event honored individuals across five distinct categories including Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

Dorcus  Namara, chief operations officer at Jubilee Insurance Uganda, stated how important it is to celebrate efforts and achievements of these agents and financial advisors.

"This day is a very special, we get to celebrate all efforts they have done in the past year, we get to see new customers joining on board, we get to see existing customers pay up their premiums and this is because the agents and financial advisors have been engaging them." She noted.
