About the IICOGH

The Insurance Institute of the Cape of Good Hope was first established in 1898 and is the oldest local institute in South Africa. We are a non-profit organisation, established to serve the interest of the entire insurance community of the Western Cape.

We aim to provide a vibrant and effective networking platform to our members representing insurers, brokers and service providers in the Western Cape and are a central point for advancing members’ interests within the industry.

The IICoGH is proud of its role in the community, supporting various deserving charities through our annual Charity Auction proceeds. We also work closely with the IISA, keeping our members updated on FSB requirements relating to education and continuous professional development (CPD). Through our close partnership with the IISA, we aim to provide a platform for CPD to our members from 2010 onwards.

When considering the history of the IICoGH, it is interesting to note that during the 1972 Annual Gala Dinner, the speaker was Sir De Villiers Graaff, who was accompanied by his wife. Other ladies were invited to attend, making the occasion a memorable one. We have certainly come a long way since 1972 with a council leadership structure leaning towards female dominance!

Our presence in the entire membership area ensures a clear networking path with all members.
