Recognizing the potential of the Life Insurance Business in Ghana, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) as a matchmaker brought together two corporate giants; to form Enterprise Life Assurance Company Limited.
Enterprise Life was therefore incorporated in the year 2000 with Enterprise Insurance Company, a listed general insurance company in Ghana, African Life, a South African Life Insurance Company and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), as its initial shareholders.
In 2001 Enterprise life was handed her operational license , with a modest beginning of just one branch, pioneering staff of nine, a thirty two member sales force, and a brand identity based on the concept of the Thoroughbred.
Sanlam acquired African Life 2006, and subsequently in 2010, Enterprise Life's interest was transferred to the Enterprise Group.
In June 2017, Black Star Holdings Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leapfrog Strategic African Investments (LSAI) acquired Sanlam’s stake in Enterprise Life .LSAI is jointly owned by Leap Frog investments and Prudential Financial Inc. of America (PFI)
