ABOUT KUDA

Kuda has made a significant footprint in our niche markets, specifically Bloodstock, Sport Horse & Game. But, we have so much more to offer. We have meticulously built our company into being South Africa’s leading luxury lifestyle insurer and Foreign Exchange service provider. At Kuda we don’t take our accolades or growth for granted; in fact we never stop striving for improvement and to raise the standards ever higher.

One of the cornerstones of our commitment is to give you complete peace of mind. Choose us and you’ll get the personal treatment that has been a hallmark of Kuda since we opened our doors in 2009.
We want to highlight our other services too. Trust us to walk your journey with you, offering complete cover for all your precious assets. You will see why our loyal client base has never doubted their decision to speak to us.

Our cover extends to all facets: whether it’s your home, a holiday home, a bush lodge, a business, pieces of art, a watch collection, your car … the possibilities are as wide as your portfolio of investments. We are also highly skilled with a Forex department headed up by one of the industry’s leading lights with 25 years’ experience.
We pride ourselves on delivering excellence and the personal touch. We won’t ask you to deal with “middlemen” or call centres.
Speak to us. It will change the way you view your assets.
