During the 2017 financial year, Benson Wairegi salary included a salary of Sh. 52.5 million which was equivalent to a monthly salary of Sh. 4.3 million, a gratuity pay of Sh. 16 million, cash bonuses that amounted to Sh. 5.5 million and non-cash benefits that amounted to Sh. 1.1 million.

The company also disclosed that in the financial year 2018, it paid its executive director, Stephen Wandera, a total of Sh. 40.9 million up from the Sh. 40.4 million that he got in the financial year 2017.

During the financial year 2018, Britam posted a Sh. 2.2 billion after-tax loss for the year ended December 2018 following a hit on its equity investment in mortgage lender Housing Finance Group (HF).

The insurer, which bought a 48.2 percent stake in HF, lost nearly Sh. 4 billion in paper wealth after the mortgage lender’s share sunk to a 15-year low after a turn of poor financial performance. Britam’s stake in HF totals to 186.2 million shares, which are now valued at Sh. 1 billion.

It made a loss on its listed equities and had depressed returns on property investments that resulted in a Sh. 2.7 billion drop in profit from Sh. 527 million net earnings recorded in 2017. “The reported loss is mainly attributable to unrealised loss in listed equities of Sh. 3.2 billion compared to a gain of Sh. 0.9 billion in 2017,” said the firm in its financial statements.
