Discovery is a leading financial services institution founded on the principles of consumer engagement and wellness. Our approach to financial products is highly differentiated and involves integrating our entire product range with our science-based wellness programme, Vitality. The integration with Vitality has enabled us to improve our competitive position by offering unique products with better benefits and at a lower price than our competitors.
In South Africa, Discovery operates in the health insurance market through Discovery Health, the life assurance market through Discovery Life, the financial services market through Discovery Invest and DiscoveryCard and in the wellness arena through Discovery Vitality. All operating subsidiaries are 100% owned by Discovery.
Discovery is a financial services organisation that operates in South Africa, the United Kingdom, China and the United States of America. Discovery was established in 1992, initially as a specialist risk manager in the private health insurance market. It has since expanded into a fully integrated financial services organisation spanning the following key markets:
1. Consumer-engaged health assurance
Discovery’s health assurance subsidiaries, Discovery Health in South Africa and PruHealth in the UK, offer health assurance products that aim to make people healthier and provide comprehensive cover for medical expenses when they are sick.
2. Consumer-engaged life assurance
Through Discovery Life in South Africa and PruProtect in the UK, Discovery provides flexible benefits that meet policyholder needs, and that price risk dynamically to offer better value for money.
3. Financial services
In the financial services arena in South Africa, Discovery uses the power of consumerism to maximise value:
The Vitality wellness programme is the foundation of each of Discovery’s businesses in the UK and South Africa, and is available as a stand-alone product for employer groups and health insurers in the USA.
We have built an organisation of exceptional success, which has at its foundation the purpose of improving people’s lives and uplifting the society in which it operates. While these ideals require scale and strength, the paradox is that it is the individual who makes the difference. In this regard, it is our focus to bring out the best in people – our company is built on the belief that there is greatness in everyone.
We are explorers, working on the frontier of progress, tackling some of society’s most challenging problems; excited by the potential that new thinking brings. We are problem solvers, persistent in the belief that there’s always a better way to do things – especially when it seems impossible.
Surrounded by the smartest minds, inspired by the immense possibilities inherent in our complex operating environments, we challenge ourselves to find solutions that make a difference in the world.
We challenge ourselves to embrace ambiguity and navigate our way to fresh insights. We challenge ourselves to coalesce our thinking into meaningful products that will forever change and enhance people’s lives.
We challenge ourselves to continuously improve everything we do, knowing that excellence is not a destination, but an ongoing pursuit. We challenge ourselves to do more and to be more, to think beyond boundaries and to achieve the impossible.
