John started his career in the horse insurance industry in 1976. As managing director of Thoroughbred Insurances (Pty) Ltd he was chief underwriter of the largest bloodstock premium base in South Africa. He sold the company to Georgina Kramer and observed a restraint of trade for the requisite 2 years. His re-entry to the insurance market was as a result of client request several years later. Cover is now placed to suit the needs of each risk and where the best premium is available. The power of combining client premiums has resulted in rapid attention and prompt claim settlement.

The Thoroughbred Group’s insurance administration is handled in John’s office by Clinton - for assistance please contact Clinton on +27 (0)21 418 0566 or by email:
