About MSIG Indonesia

The Company´s long history can be traced back to 1970 when PT. Maskapai Asuransi Indonesia started acting as a General Agent for Taisho Marine and Fire Insurance Co., Ltd., Japan. The growth of Indonesia´s economy eventually stimulated the development of insurance business in the country. A conducive environment as supported by the Government regulations prompted the establishment of joint venture general insurance company.


Then, on October 22, 1975 PT. Asuransi Insido Taisho was officially established as a joint venture company between Taisho Marine and Fire Insurance Co., Ltd., Japan (70% shares) and PT. Maskapai Asuransi Indonesia (30% shares), with statutory capital of IDR 750 million.


Due to the changes in the Government regulations, in 1983 the composition of shares of the Company was altered to become 51% held by the Indonesian party and 49% by the Japanese party. However, since December 1990, as the statutory capital was increased to become IDR 15 billion, the share composition became 79.60% held by the Japanese party while the remaining 20.40% by the Indonesian party. Subsequently, on December 16, 1999 the statutory capital was increased to become IDR 40 billion with no change in the share composition.

On April 1, 1996 the Company's name was changed from PT. Asuransi Insindo Taisho to become PT. Asuransi Mitsui Marine Indonesia, following the change of parent company's name from Taisho Marine and Fire Insurance Co., Ltd. to become Mitsui Marine and Fire Insurance Co., Ltd.
