As the twentieth year of our organization has arrived, I believe time has flown by and I would like to thank everyone that has made this happen, our staff, our partners and most importantly our clients and their unwavering trust.
Our overwhelming dedication to client servicing and relevant truthful advice has ensured a high level of service, this has always been our motto, this has continued over the last twenty years.
We have seen considerable growth over the last year and managed to adapt to the dynamic environment of the Insurance and Investments business. We’ve seen noteworthy development in areas of high value life insurance, premium financing and health insurance considering DHAs new mandate. The medical team has worked hard to service existing and set up new accounts.
Our General Insurance department has also been working on overdrive to manage the growing business efficiently and we have seen a lot of blood, sweat and hardwork go into our growing revenues.
In the Industry we are constantly faced with new challenges, it is how we overcome them that I believe is what has defined us.
It has been reassuring to know our advisors have a keen interest in professional development, keeping upto date with the latest laws of the land and financial legislation, this is something everyone has embraced with open arms.
Our Annual convention to Bali in 2014 has seen record attendance, a sign of our advisors taking it to the next level, it was great to see them bond and share learnings over a leisure filled trip.
I believe our annual conventions are of great value, cash bonuses can only do so much, caring for your people is something our MD thoroughly believes in, which is why the conventions came about, everyone looks forward to them and there is a significant revenue added because of the race to qualify.
Continental has proven that change is essential to progress, with an increased focus on Information Technology this year, the necessity to be able to give our clients their reports and desired information on their fingertips is something our new iBS system will deliver.
I saw my father build this company as a child, his dedication and determination has built a company from three people in a small setup to a company with over two hundred agile employees today. It has been a privilege to witness our growth and I am proud to be able to be a part of our organization.
We have a long way to go, the last twenty years have undoubtedly set benchmarks for the way a financial consultancy should conduct business, here is to the next twenty and here is to adaptation, as John Kennedy said
I’d like to thank each and everyone of our stake holders for this year and the last twenty, and I wish you all a fruitful and successful 2015.
