He transformed uniBank's Bancassurance business and led innovations that will completely change how insurance is sold and bought in Ghana through the voice signature telesales campaign project with CaseJohnson.Risk prevention has been and continues to dominate his thinking in terms of product development and probably the first to have introduced a motor insurance policy with roadside assistance on the Ghanaian market For the first time in Ghana, insurance innovation was not led by insurers, It was led by a banking official who saw great potential in that space.Alfred co-founded the Bancassurance Conference Ghana and the Pan-African Bancassurance Conference, a knowledge-sharing platform for bankers, insurers, regulators, technology companies, consultants, BPO's etc where delegates from more than twenty different countries across the world converge to share ideas on insurance and banking and how they can leverage technology to promote financial inclusion on the African continent.Alfred has shared his experiences as a speaker, panellist at conferences and seminars both at home and abroad.He comes on board with a niche for spotting business opportunities, an ideas person a natural entrepreneur who converts challenges into opportunities.Alfred's current project and passion are turning messager platforms into key distribution channels in the financial services sector.
