Jinnah Road, Karachi Co-operative Insurance Building 23 Shahrah-e-Quaid-e-Azam, Lahore Company Background In the early 30s of the 20th century, under the inspiration of the Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, there began to appear signs of economic renaissance of the Muslims of India. Shipping, Airline, Banking and Insurance companies made their debut. In 1932, Mr.
Ghulam Mohammad, a farsighted man, established Eastern Federal Union Insurance Company (EFU) with financial assistance from the Aga Khan III and the Nawab of Bhopal. Mr. Abdur Rehman Siddiqui became the founder chairman. The firm was originally registered at Calcutta and operated in India (undivided) and Burma. In 1947, on the birth of Pakistan, EFU found a new home in a new country. In Pakistan, EFU rapidly established itself as a progressive and innovative insurer. It gave the emerging insurance industry the leadership, the manpower and the drive needed to grow in a situation where at one time, three-fourths of insurance was held by foreign companies.
By 1961, EFU had become the flag bearer of Pakistan’s insurance industry on the world stage and the largest life company in Afro-Asian countries (excluding Japan) under the leadership of Mr. Roshen Ali Bhimjee. It remained so until 1972 when Life Assurance business in Pakistan was nationalized. Thereafter EFU operated solely as a General Insurance Company, and was subsequently renamed EFU General Insurance Limited. Now EFU General is the second largest non-life insurance company in the country and the mother company of other insurance organizations of EFU Insurance Group. In June 1990 the Government of Pakistan decided to allow Life Assurance business in private sector also. On 18 November 1992, EFU Life was granted a license to carry on life assurance business.
It started operations immediately with Group Life products and in March 1994 launched its Individual Life products. EFU entered the field of life assurance with the focus on the changing needs of the population. The company is committed to provide its policyholders with solutions to the problems of today’s complex and rapidly changing financial environment by introducing innovative and modern products. In March 2000, Allianz Aktiengesellschaft (Allianz AG), a global leader in the insurance industry with an active presence in 70 markets across 5 continents and EFU Group signed a joint venture to form a new company for providing health insurance cover to the people of Pakistan. Allianz EFU Health.
Insurance Limited, approved by the Government of Pakistan, is the first specialized health insurance provider in the country and aims to play a pivotal role in developing the health insurance market in Pakistan. Traditionally the EFU name has become synonymous with progressiveness and prompts claim settlement and now the EFU being the largest insurance group provides a full range of general, life and health insurance services. Corporate Profile EFU is one of the few Pakistani organizations run totally by professional management and highly motivated field force. Another unique feature of EFU is a voluntary review mechanism by professionals of international repute.
The independent reviews by these professionals enable the company to keep abreast of international changes in the industry as well as ensure that management adopts the best international practices. EFU gave the emerging insurance industry the leadership, the manpower and the drive needed to grow in a situation where at one time, foreign companies held three-fourths of insurance. The Principal place of business is located at EFU House, M. A. Jinnah Road, Karachi, Pakistan with over 60 branches throughout the country. Another pillar of EFU’s strength is its very close and long-term (over 50 years) relationship with its main reinsurer, ‘Munich Re’, one of the largest reinsurance companies in the world.
