Bancassurance at FBC Bank doesn’t end with effecting cover but stretches beyond to the core reason for getting insured which is the claim processing.

As clients would be aware, the high inflation which is being experienced in Zimbabwe’s economy has resulted in a substantial increase in the replacement cost of all property.
It is therefore important that the sum insured under one’s policy represents the current replacement value of the property. All claim settlements are subject to “averaging” such that if you one is underinsured they will bear a proportion of the loss.
The most important consideration when it comes to policy renewals is to ensure that the property is properly valued and that the sum insured represents the true market value. It is also advisable for policyholders to seek the services of professional valuers to carry out valuations on their assets before renewing their policies. — Own Correspondent.
