Last week Artinsure, a specialised underwriting manager providing customised art and collectables insurance policies, underwritten by Hollard Insurance, welcomed Yaseen Ismail to the Artisure team, via their newsletter.
Yaseen will be managing specific broker portfolios and assisting Artinsure with new business opportunities. Yaseen said he is extremely excited about this new venture with Artinsure and honoured to be part of the larger Hollard team.
“The knowledge I have gained in the past few weeks with the company is amazing and the working environment and culture at Artinsure and Hollard just pushes you to want to gain more knowledge and help the company achieve its goals. I am a part of a great team that offers the knowledge, expertise and energy that drives me to want to achieve success within the company. I look forward to my time here!”
Yaseen has always had an interest in arts and culture, more specifically around photography and theatre. “Joining the Artinsure team has now sparked other interests which have directly influenced my interest in the insurance aspect of the business,” he said.
Yaseen attended King Edward VII High School (KES) in Houghton, but matriculated from Parow High School in Cape Town. No stranger to hard work, Yaseen is currently studying towards his BCom Risk Management degree through UNISA. His ultimate goal is to achieve a BCom Honours in Finance.
“I am very passionate about bringing joy in people’s lives, influencing them and bringing about positive change. I am a family orientated individual, which drives me to achieve success within my own life and see every problem as an opportunity. My motto in life is, “Chase the dream, not the competition”.
Yaseen is joining Artinsure from AIG SA Limited, where he worked as a Group Development Account Manager.
All the best to Yaseen on his new adventure!
