Note is taken that the insurer did not pay out dividends in the year under review, addressing the concern of continued capital reduction as a result of dividend extraction. As such, the capital base measured at TZS15.8bn at FY20 (FY19: TZS14.9bn; FY16: TZS17.6bn). leading tothe GCR capital adequacy ratio (“GCR CAR”) closing higher at 2.6x at FY20 (FY19: 2.3x). Heritage Tanzania’s regulatory solvency was maintained above the regulatory requirement over the review period.
