Prioritising exceptional care for high-net-worth individuals.

Decades of serving propertied individuals with more to protect.

About MUA.

“A nation’s heritage resides in the heart and in the soul of its people.” Mahatma Gandhi. For over 35 years, propertied members, and those with more to protect, have trusted MUA with their significant asset portfolios. Established in 1988 as the “Motor Underwriting Agency”, we quickly cemented our reputation as the pioneering specialist underwriters of high-value cars. Subsequently, our proficiency expanded to include home insurance as part of our highly-regarded skillset.
Today, we underwrite on behalf of Auto & General but remain an independent underwriting manager. Our shares are primarily owned by Lireas Holdings, the South African strategic investment arm of the German reinsurer Hannover Re.
Our business is centred on investing in people as this is the ultimate means of developing valuable, long-term relationships that are indeed mutually beneficial. MUA embodies the legacy of our entrepreneurial founder, continually empowering our ecosystem to upskill and tap into their experience and learnings while remaining flexible enough to accommodate even the most discerning of clients.
Our MUA broker network is critical to the history of MUA and our operations. Partnering with exceptional brokers who are ardent about their tailored services to high-net-worth clients has aided in sustained and successful long-term relationships with our members.
