The Insurance Association of the Caribbean (IAC) Inc. is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion and growth of the Caribbean Insurance Industry. Its membership is diverse with a large contingent of registered affiliates located throughout the Caribbean, Canada, Europe and the United States that specialise in every field of insurance. The Insurance Association of the Caribbean (IAC) was the “brainchild” of a small group of visionaries (industry leaders from Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana and Barbados) who wanted to prepare the indigenous insurance industry for the future challenges of the remaining century.

Since 1911, Pan-American Life has been dedicated to being the first-choice partner for top rated life, accident and health insurance and employee benefits for local and multi-national companies, as well as individuals seeking trusted financial security. Guided by the success and strength of its 100-year history, PALIG has established a track record as one of the most financially sound insurance companies. The company’s heritage manifests a longstanding dedication to providing customers with innovative products and services to secure their future.
