It was established with a capital sum of EC $100,000 loan by the Government and given the status of a Department of Government.
State Insurance Corporation has attained high visibility not only as a result of the very impressive architectural and physical facilities within which it operates, but because of the contribution it has made and continues to make in the area of sports, culture, education and the arts.
The Corporation also enjoys the cordial relationship and confidence it has built up with International Reinsurers worldwide
