NAGICO Insurances to be fully acquired by Peak Reinsurance Company Limited

NAGICO Insurances, the largest privately owned General Insurance company in the Caribbean, is pleased to announce that definitive agreement has been reached between parties and Peak Reinsurance Company Limited (“Peak Re”) is to become its 100% owner, subject to regulatory approvals being received and other customary closing conditions being satisfied.

Since the initial investment by Peak Re in August 2016, NAGICO Insurances pursued growth opportunities and has expanded its life operations and footprint into the Eastern Caribbean region, and on the general insurance side it has continued to prove itself as a strong, reliable, and trusted group having paid nearly $1 billion in claims following three CAT-5 Hurricanes: Irma, Maria and Dorian which devastated the region.

The Management and Board of NAGICO Insurances are excited by the development. “The outlook for NAGICO Insurances is positive,” said Kyria Ali, Interim CEO and Chief Strategy & Development Officer. “This transaction, when concluded, would result in the group being a wholly owned subsidiary of an A.M. Best A- and Moody’s A3 rated global reinsurer with approximately $1.5 billion in equity, thereby further strengthening our profile and broadening our reach. In addition, our mutual desire to harness the power of technology and deliver exceptional service augurs well for our clients in the near term.”

Both NAGICO Insurances and Peak Re will focus now on ensuring that all the necessary requirements for regulatory approval and closing conditions are met.

Thoughts and Prayer for St vincent and the Grenadines

The NAGICO Family extends its prayers and support to our Vinsure Family and the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The La Soufriere volcano in St. Vincent has been erupting since yesterday, Friday 9th April, and the authorities gave an evacuation order the night before, i.e. Thursday 8th April, to the relevant areas of the country. This is a developing situation, however, Geologist Richard Robertson said that so far, the data shows that the 2021 eruption would more than likely be much bigger than the 1979 eruption.

We are happy to advise that all of our VINSURE staff are in the green zone and are safe indoors. We understand from them that the ash fall is very heavy and that the sulphur smell is quite strong, with persons very South of the island (in Kingstown) / very far away from the volcano experiencing it also at present. Visibility has been reported to be very low, even in Kingstown (green zone). Despite the devastating and developing situation, our Vinsure team remains in positive spirits and are appreciative of the significant outpouring of care, support and prayer.

Please join us as we continue to keep our Vinsure Family and the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in our thoughts and prayers.

NAGICO Insurances Partners with DMF to take Steel Pan Music Beyond the Classroom

NAGICO Insurances has partnered with Dow Musical Foundation (DMF) to facilitate the teaching and performance of students in the musical artform of playing the steel pan, otherwise known as the music of the Caribbean, Beyond the Classroom.

The objective of this program is to create a platform for the students of St. Maarten (primary and secondary school students) to sharpen their steel plan skills and showcase their talent. Through our partnership with the DMF, at least 450 students between the ages of 11 and 18 years, from 10 schools, will get the opportunity to perform at various public events in 2020 and even compete against each other for bragging rights and other prizes.

“We know that this partnership will make a positive social impact and contribute to the character of our youth in St. Maarten. We expect that the Beyond the Classroom program will also open doors for the students and the island as a whole; after all Music is food for the soul.” NAGICO Insurances said.

Discipline, respect, teamwork, presentation skills and confidence in oneself are byproducts that will also be derived from the Beyond the Classroom program. These core values and qualities are vital to shaping well rounded individuals and NAGICO Insurances and DMF are eager to contribute to society in this regard.

“We are very thankful to NAGICO Insurances for partnering with us on this project,” Dow; founder of the DMF said. “Steel Pan is an important part of our culture and we intend to pass it on to the next generation and ensure that this art form is not lost.”

DMF said that they have also engaged other private partners in the community to come onboard the first Beyond the Classroom event – the Steel Band Inter-School Competition which is slated for 4 April 2020 at the Festival Village from 7pm-10pm. Come out and support your fellow students, school, alma mater, friends or family. It will be a truly spectacular event.

NAGICO Insurances remains committed to St. Maarten and its culture and is honored to be a part of this wonderful initiative.

NAGICO Insurances partners with Samaritan’s Purse to help provide relief for The Bahamas


NAGICO Insurances has partnered with Samaritan’s Purse, an International crisis response organization, to raise funds and ensure a coordinated approach toward providing relief specifically for the people of Bahamas.

On September 1st, the world watched in horror as Hurricane Dorian a category 5 storm relentlessly pounded the Bahamas, causing significant devastation and scores of fatalities in its wake as it slowly moved across Abaco and Grand Bahamas.

The NAGICO Group was deeply saddened by this and it is very personal for us as the Bahamas is one of our homes where our family: staff, clients and intermediaries reside.

After initial consultation with our local management, we committed to providing financial assistance which is being managed directly through our team in Nassau, Bahamas. In addition, given the tremendous outpouring of concern for the people of the affected islands and the many enquiries we have received regarding how our network can help, we are pleased to advise that we have partnered with Samaritan’s Purse to raise funds for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts. You can help by making a donation at

If you can’t make a donation at this point, you can still help this cause on behalf of the people of Bahamas by sharing this page on your social media platforms or by sending an e-mail to family or friends that you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to our page.

Samaritan’s Purse specializes in meeting critical needs for victims of conflict, disaster, famine, and epidemics throughout the world. They provide food, water, shelter, medicine, and other assistance. Some of their recent work was done in St. Maarten Maarten/St. Martin and Dominica where they provided relief following Hurricanes Irma & Maria.

Nagico Insurances donates projector to HLSCC Virgin Gorda Branch

“According to the late great Nelson Mandela, ‘No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated.’ Nagico Insurances is well aware of this and spares little to support the development of the young minds of the Virgin Islands.”

This was stated by Customer Service and Sales Representative for the Nagico Insurances’ Virgin Gorda Branch, Susanna Ophelia, during a presentation of an EPSON PowerLite Wireless Projector to the Virgin Gorda Branch of the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) on Thursday March 7, 2019.

The HLSCC Virgin Gorda Centre had lost its projectors, among other equipment, during the devastating hurricanes of September 2017.

One of the benefactors of Nagico Insurances’ community mindedness has always been the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC).

As recently as January, Nagico Insurances donated a dozen of the recently launched book titled, “Nursing In The Virgin Islands: A Historical Perspective (1920-2017)” to the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) in Paraquita Bay. This book was the work of local author and medical professional Norma M. Benjamin.

Back in December, Nagico Insurances was a main sponsor of the college’s fundraiser dubbed ‘Jam for a Cause’.

“And we were delighted to be given an opportunity by Dr Steve Lennard to make a presentation to the HLSCC’s Virgin Gorda Centre. We trust this piece of equipment, an EPSON PowerLite Wireless Projector, would assist the college to creatively deliver some of the programmes offered,” Ms Ophelia remarked.

On hand to receive the donation was President of HLSCC Mrs Judith Vanterpool, who expressed gratitude for the continued support by Nagico Insurances.

Director of the HLSCC Virgin Gorda Centre Dr Steve Lennard also had words of appreciation for the needed equipment.

“We lost all the projectors we had during the hurricanes. We would normally use them for business classes, computer courses and so on. The donation is so much appreciated. Our IT guys are very excited about it as well. It is a very good brand,” Dr Lennard stated.

Meanwhile, Ms Ophelia encouraged other businesses to also reach out the HLSCC Virgin Gorda Centre, as well as other educational institutions still rebuilding following the catastrophic hurricanes of September 2017.

It was last October, during Teachers Appreciation Week, that Nagico Insurances BVI expressed its gratitude for teachers of Ciboney Centre for Excellence on Virgin Gorda with a donation of office furniture and equipment.
