The Pioneer group of insurance companies traces its roots to 1954, when its founders began to build a business from a network of relationships characterized by trust. The early years were focused on establishing leadership in marine hull insurance, but the company quickly expanded into other non-life lines, and by 1964 began to offer life insurance.
Today we at Pioneer work with the industrialists who shape our country’s development, and support the heads of families who seek to secure and protect their loved ones. We provide coverage for every man, woman, and child, and for every industry sector, making certain that because they entrust us with their life, property and investments, that in return we are there for them when they need us most.
