About First Assurance Co Ltd

It is not possible to talk about First Assurance Co Ltd without giving a brief background of its predecessor - The Prudential Assurance Company PLC A British Multinational Insurance Company. The Prudential Assurance Company Limited, the parent Company of Prudential Assurance Company of Kenya Limited, commenced active business operations in East Africa in 1930. The Company’s early years of operation were mainly on Life Assurance Business and the General Insurance Branch was merely set up to cater for the General Insurance Business of Life Policy Holders. This trend changed in 1953 when a full General Insurance Branch status was given to East Africa.
