Ghana Insurers Association (GIA)
Ghana Insurers Association is the trade Association for all companies licensed and registered to transact insurance and reinsurance business in Ghana
Ghana Insurance Industry traces its root to the colonial era when insurance business was transacted through foreign trading companies who acted as chief agents of insurance companies in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
In 1924 Royal Exchange Assurance Corporation which was then represented by its Chief Agent, Barclays Bank, opened its branch in the Gold Coast. It then became the first insurance company to operate in Ghana. It is now known as Enterprise Insurance Company after going through a series of changes. After that many other foreign companies opened offices in the Gold Coast. Read More
