“Next level is now the Risk Based Capital, (RBC). The Commission is working with the FSD Africa on this and very soon, the framework will be unveiled,” Thomas said.

Speaking on full digitisation of the insurance sector, the commissioner, stated that it seemed some companies did not want to go digital but that such companies were in the minority.
