Overview

Founded in 2001, AIC began its operations by offering conventional insurance, including automobile, commercial and homeowners, while retaining a clear vision for transforming the insurance industry in Haiti to one that was more inclusive and accessible. This vision led to AIC’s current growth trajectory, culminating in the innovative, transparent and dynamic company that AIC is today, combining both traditional product lines and product lines that target all Haitians, to include the country’s most vulnerable populations and make financial inclusion a priority.

Founded by a family with a long and dedicated practice in the insurance industry, AIC is among the best-capitalized multi-line insurance companies in Haiti, providing reliable insurance protection for individuals and businesses in all regions of the country.  The company provides coverage for auto, homes, businesses and life with policies specifically tailored for the unique needs of the Haitian market.

In 2011, AIC developed partnerships with some of the strongest Haitian and international investors as shareholders and capital providers, each of whom continue to work closely with AIC to strengthen and expand the insurance sector in each province of the country.
