The New India Assurance Company (Trinidad and Tobago) Limited has a long and successful history in the Caribbean. In 1946, the Company started its Trinidad operations through New Mercantile Agencies, marking its entry into the Caribbean. This was followed in 1966 by the establishment of full-fledged Branch Offices in Port of Spain and San Fernando and the acquisition of the insurance portfolio of two Indian owned Companies Ruby General and Sterling.

With New India, Mumbai holding 51% shares, The New India Assurance Co. (T & T) Ltd was incorporated as a local Company in 1976. Later in 1982 the majority ownership and control was vested in the Caribbean Region and in 1998 majority ownership was returned to New India, Mumbai.

Through these phases of social and economic developments in the region the New India Assurance Co. also operated in Grenada, Barbados and Jamaica. At present we operate in Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana, St Lucia, Dominica and St Marteen/Anguilla.  Together with our parent Company’s Branches in Curacao and Aruba our presence in the Caribbean is solid.

Locally, we have Branch Offices located in El Dorado, Chaguanas, San Fernando and our Head Office is located in Port of Spain.
