Our History

Paramount Life & General Insurance Corporation traces its roots back to May 1950 when it formally started its non-life insurance business as the Paramount Insurance and Surety Corporation. In a few short years, Paramount successfully established a strong market presence in the small to medium retail business segment. Guided by an experienced management team and highly professional staff, Paramount became quickly known as the Bayad Agad™ company for its business practice of quick claims settlement.

In February 1993, Semper Insurance Corporation was established to extend Paramount’s range of services to include the corporate and medium to large business market segments. Its strong emphasis on service excellence and reliability mirrors its corporate philosophy of Service is Our Policy®.

1997 was a milestone for Paramount as a new Paramount General Insurance Corporation was formed with the entry of two new strategic investors: the Lucky Tableware Group of Cebu, the Philippines’ leading manufacturer of glass containers, enamelware and porcelain ware; and the ANJ Group of the Tahija Family of Indonesia whose interests include financial services, infrastructure development, and mining.

In 2001, Paramount acquired the Philippine operations of the Union Insurance Society of Canton, Ltd. from AXA of France, further strengthening its position in the Philippine general insurance industry. To reflect this new acquisition, Paramount General became known as Paramount Union Insurance Corporation.

Then in 2002, Paramount expanded into the life insurance business by acquiring AEGON Life Insurance Philippines, the Philippine branch of Netherlands-based AEGON Life N.V., and was granted a composite license by the Insurance Commission of the Philippines to operate the business of life and general insurance. In the same year, Paramount was renamed to its present corporate name, Paramount Life & General Insurance Corporation and increased its paid-up capital to PhP150 Million Pesos.

Continuing its strategy of organic growth and consolidation, Paramount acquired the Manila Bankers Life Insurance Corporation’s Individual Life Insurance Portfolio in 2005.

In 2010, Paramount further established its presence in the insurance industry with the launch of its Madaling KausapTM campaign. Then in 2011, Paramount further increased its Paid-up Capital to Php500 Million Pesos bringing its total Net Worth to over Php1.7 Billion Pesos and assets of over P4 Billion Pesos.

In 2012, Paramount acquired Sony Life Insurance Philippines for its unique, needs-based Life Planning sales channel thereby completing the company’s capability to service the entire market spectrum of the insuring public. The acquisition of Sony Life Insurance Philippines’ life insurance portfolio further enhanced Paramount’s presence in the industry.

Now, with over 25 non-life branches and 50 life branches in number nationwide, Paramount has one of the most extensive sales and marketing networks in the industry. It is also the leading insurance provider for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and one of the fastest growing insurance companies in the Philippines.
