Mr. Daniel Braie, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Linkage Assurance Plc has been named among Top 25 CEOs whose companies impacted positively on investors on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) in the 2018 financial year.
“These companies have been honoured for contributing to the growth of the market capitalisation of quoted firms in 2018, inspite of the overall market performance ending in the negative territory, while others were celebrated for inculcating good corporate governance, innovations and raising the standards of their organisations to a point where it would be seamless if they were to be listed on the NSE today, the organisers said.
Daniel Braie commenting on the award thanked the organisers for recognising the efforts that the Board and Management of Linkage Assurance Plc were making to ensure value creation for shareholders.
He said as a company “we are committed to sustaining the rules and regulations of the capital market, ensure regulatory compliance and good corporate governance practice.”
Braie noted that the company will continue to deploy strategies and measures to increase insurance penetration and grow the business such that its shareholders will continue to earn good returns on their investment.
According to Braie, the potential of the insurance industry is huge, calling on the general public to embrace insurance as the most effective and efficient means of managing their risks against unforeseen circumstances.
