Our companies

ICEA LION Group - Kenya

We are a one-stop financial services provider offering innovative products and services in insurance, pensions, investments and trusts. Having delivered several innovative solutions to the market over the years, we have grown to become one of the largest financial service providers in the region with well-established operations in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. The Group was formed when Insurance Company of East Africa Limited (ICEA) and Lion of Kenya Insurance Company Limited (LOK) merged in 2011.

We are structured in a way that enhances internal efficiencies as we protect and create wealth for our customers. Our companies are therefore separated into: life and non-life insurance, investment management and trusts.

Our life and non-life companies are ICEA LION Life Assurance Company and the ICEA LION General Insurance Company. ICEA LION Asset Management and ITSL Trust Company Limited are our investment and individual and corporate trusteeship companies. The insurance & investment subsidiaries in Uganda and Tanzania, previously controlled separately by ICEA and Lion of Kenya respectively, also form part of the ICEA LION Group.
