Metropolitan Life Kenya has been operating since 2007, offering primarily life insurance solutions to retail and corporate clients. In 2013, the company held a solid position in the market place and managed to increase market share.

Established in 1964, Cannon Assurance has a wide footprint in Kenya, offering a comprehensive suite of insurance products and asset management solutions. Following the acquisition of a majority stake in Cannon Assurance by MMI Holdings, Metropolitan Life Kenya successfully merged with Cannon at the beginning of 2015.

Following the merger, Metropolitan Life Kenya and Cannon Assurance consolidated their life insurance licenses into one, and retained a stand-alone short-term insurance license.

Metropolitan Cannon is part of MMI Group Limited, an authorized financial services provider.

Corporate Social Responsibility

At Metropolitan Cannon, we believe in improving the quality of life for all when considering our Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiatives.
We believe that together we can make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.


As a business that operates in a country where the health crisis is evident, we seek opportunities that allow us to support organizations whose mission is to promote health education, expand outreach programs and create activities that drive economic empowerment.


We take pride in Kenya’s natural beauty and her wildlife and as such, we support efforts that seek to raise funds for this cause. One such initiative is our support towards the construction of the Aberdare Electric Fence where we sponsor a rally car that participates in the off-road motorsport event . Funds raised go towards the fencing project carried out by Rhino Ark, a Charitable Trust.
