We’re extremely proud of our heritage, both the insurance industry and our great nation have come from a long and divers history, and we at AIC respect that carrying forward some of the principals and ideals is an honour to behold. From the earliest days where records show when insurance first began, as a mutually beneficial solution to very difficult times for the individuals, to current times where we firmly believe these same simple values still apply.
Insurance dates back nearly 4000 years according to Wikipedia – where merchants would pay into a fund to protect themselves against lost shipments, and we still do exactly the same thing today in our marine dept.
AIC have been lucky enough to base its head office in an old historic building, once used as a bank and built in 1884. And in renovating this run down grade listed property we managed to retain and revive some of the fantastic features, and revere some of the work that the craftsman of the day brought to this building in its original construction. Were so proud we’ve attached some photo’s here for you to enjoy, some showing the before and after the work.
