The Centre for Insurance and Financial Management has said it is partnering other relevant bodies to develop the insurance profession.

The Rector of the centre, Dr. Yeside Oyetayo, said this during the graduation ceremony of its diploma students, which was held on its campus in Ogun State.

She said the college was set up to deliver cutting edge educational services in the insurance industry, noting that there was a dearth of human capital in the industry and was determined to address the problem.

“The college offers full-time and part-time diploma in insurance and certificate courses in risk management, pensions and annuity and Islamic finance and Takaful,” she said.

Oyetayo said the college was currently collaborating with some universities in Nigeria offering degree courses in insurance to increase the enrolment level in insurance courses.

The Chairman, Governing Council, Funmi Babington-Ashaye, said that since its inception, the centre had produced 25 diploma holders, adding that this achievement was made possible through its collaboration with organisations both within and outside the country.

She disclosed that it was celebrating the 11 graduands that had just completed the diploma programme.
