A New Way to Protect Your Intellectual Property

Africa is home to some of the world’s most exclusive innovations and creativity. Worldwide, there is a trend of increased patent applications each year, with more than 3 million applications filed in 2017. This trend is also true in Africa where South Africa, for example, has experienced a 29.5% increase in patents applications. It is argued that the increase in the number of patents applications is a good indication that there is more innovation taking place than before.

There is inherent legal exposure associated with patents. At Maksure Risk Solutions, we have structured innovative, competitive and sustainable insurance solutions that help mitigate legal exposures inherent in intellectual property.

The products are underwritten with a Lloyds coverholder, it provides cover to a wide range of intellectual property which include:

  • Copyright
  • Patents
  • Trademarks
  • Industrial Designs
  • Geographical Indications

Patents dominate the intellectual property solutions in southern Africa. On the other hand, Maksure Risk Solutions has set its focus in providing insurance and reinsurance solutions for intellectual property. We custom tailor insurance and reinsurance products that protects our client against legal expenses inherent in intellectual property.

“We believe that our new product addition of Intellectual Property will go a long way in managing risk associated with legal expenses inherent in intellectual property solutions,” said Mr. Simba Makwembere, Managing Director at Maksure Risk Solutions.
