Launched as Motor Underwriting Agency in 1988, MUA Insurance Acceptances has grown to become one of South Africa’s leaders in tailoring insurance risk management solutions for high net worth individuals.

MUA’s portfolio of over 20 000 clients is managed through a network of 700 independent insurance brokers, serviced by a national branch network with offices in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.

MUA is solely dedicated to the high net worth insurance market and they believe that by focusing on this clientele, they can provide an individually tailored approach for each client.

Since 2006, this offering has been expanded to include home insurance, thereby including homeowners, householders and personal all risks with related liability business. This decision cemented MUA’s foothold in the market, and provided a more diversified offering.

MUA underwrites their products on behalf of Compass Insurance Company and will move to Underwrite for Auto and General with effect from 1 April 2014.


MUA has been voted a finalist in the Financial Intermediaries Association of Southern Africa (FIA) annual service excellence awards in the UMA category, for consecutive years since 2010.

With their reputation as the first specialist underwriting agency for the motor insurance market in South Africa, MUA has grown into becoming a preferred insurance provider to a select market because of their flexibility and comprehensive coverage to a market that demands a tailored solution.
