It is worth noting that Chanas, which was then the market leader, began facing a slump in 2013, following an open conflict between the CEO, Jacqueline Cassalegno and the National Hydrocarbons Company (SNH), main shareholder. This is thus an opportunity for the insurance company to reembark on the conquest of new market shares in Cameroon.
Also, Chanas confirms its stability in this SONARA market because it is not the first time that this group has taken over the stake. Over the triennial period (2020 – 2021 – 2022 ), SONARA heritage insurance and product transport risks was handed to the Chanas Assurances SA / AXA Assurances Cameroon group, for an amount of 10.66 billion FCFA. The same grouping had been awarded the lot n ° 2 relating to civil liability insurance, for an amount of 812.15 million FCFA.
According to provisional data published by the Association of Insurance Companies of Cameroon (Asac), Chanas Assurances is ranked 3rd insurance company in Cameroon at the end of 2022 with a turnover of 18.02 billion FCFA, behind Axa and Activa.
