Since inception in 1992, Discovery has been guided by a clear core purpose - to make people healthier and to enhance and protect their lives. We have been able to do this by pioneering the Shared-value Insurance model, which delivers better health and value for clients, superior actuarial dynamics for the insurer, and a healthier society. The success of the model in the markets where we operate has been testament to its importance to society. We are a market-leading South African company with a dominant presence in the life insurance, medical scheme administration, short-term insurance, long-term savings, and banking industries.
