List of Insurance Companies

Insurance sector in Bangladesh emerged after independence with state-owned- one General, one Life and one foreign life insurance company. Consistent with the privatization policy the world over, the Government of Bangladesh took a decision in 1984 to allow operation of insurance companies in the private sector side by side with state-owned. As a result, a number of companies in the private sector start functioning under Insurance Act 2010. At present number of insurance companies are:
