Aon’s presence in Zambia dates back to 1952 when J.H. Minet Zambia Limited was established as a locally registered insurance broking and risk management company. The company was nationalized in 1976 but J.H. Minet’s involvement continued in the form of a management contract for the nationalized entity, Zambia National Insurance Brokers (Z.N.I.B.), until 1989.
In 1997, Minet was acquired the following year by Aon by virtue of Aon’s acquisition of the worldwide operations of the Minet Group. The rapid growth of the company resulted in Aon Zambia becoming the largest locally registered broker within three years of operational start up, a position which it continues to enjoy today. Aon Zambia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Aon International Holdings bv.
