Swiss Re In Talks For Nigerian Acquisition

Swiss Re Ltd (SWX:SREN) is in talks with Nigerian insurers to buy minority stakes and benefit from growth in the continent's largest economy. "We'd like to have more investments in places like Nigeria," Frank O'Neill, Swiss Re's Chief Executive Officer for the Middle East and Africa, said. "The challenge is that the valuations are rich. We're looking for the right kind of partners at a price that makes sense. We're at an early stage in talks, but we're positive on the market opportunities." "The direct investments aren't about having a footprint, it's to benefit from the growth in primary insurance," O'Neill said. "Africa is very attractive from a return perspective. The investments also give us a seat on the board and on-the ground-experience. We want more of them in the region."
