Background

AIICO commenced operations in Nigeria in 1963 as an Agency office of American Life Insurance Company (“ALICO”) – at the time, a subsidiary of American International Group (“AIG”). The Company was incorporated, registered and licensed in Nigeria as American Life Insurance Company Limited – as a wholly owned subsidiary of ALICO/AIG – in 1970 – to offer Life and insurance services. The Company was renamed American International Insurance Company Limited (“AIICO”) upon the acquisition of a 60% stake by the Federal Government of Nigeria, and later listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange in 1990, after which both shareholders – the Federal Government of Nigeria and AIG divested.

  1. Life and general insurance are strategic business divisions within AIICO
  2. AIICO Capital Limited – a subsidiary of AIICO providing asset management services for AIICO and 3rd parties
  3. AIICO Multishield Limited – a leading health maintenance organisation

Following the insurance industry's consolidation in 2007, the Company acquired NFI Insurance PLC and Lamda Insurance Company Limited (both cumulatively accounting for less than 30% of AIICO's pre-acquisition gross premiums). The Company subsequently re-certified as both a General Insurance and Life Assurance Company – taking advantage of its legacy, brand, franchise and strong retail distribution network to grow a leading General Insurance business.

Our Goal

As an insurance company, AIICO's goal is to be the insurer of choice and the leading insurance company in Nigeria – providing life insurance and retirement services as well as risk underwriting to a substantial and diversified client base, which includes corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals in Nigeria.

AIICO is the market leader in Retail Life insurance and retirement services and is a market leader (top 3) in Non-Life insurance in Nigeria. The core insurance franchise is complemented by our leading insurance asset management, and health management businesses.

AIICO also owns valuable financial and strategic assets including a controlling stake in Multishield Limited, and a 19% stake in Healthcare International Limited (both healthcare management organizations (“HMOs”)), and AIICO Capital Limited (an asset management wholly-owned subsidiary).
