Solutions on offer

OMART will tailor a solution to meet your specific risk needs, taking into account your current and future business plans. The cell owner is able to partake in the underwriting profits of insurance, and enjoy the backing of the Old Mutual brand and range of capabilities.

A specific cell will be managed separately from the other cells so that the cell owner’s interests are protected at all times. Old Mutual in conjunction with the cell owner will set up a management board that will help make decisions around your cell’s business. Any profits that emerge will only be shared by the parties that have a shareholding in the cell. OMART also has the ability to white label insurance products.
