About The Association of Trinidad and Tobago Insurance Companies (ATTIC)
Established in 1966, The Association of Trinidad and Tobago Insurance Companies (ATTIC) is an association of insurance companies and its members. Our membership includes all life insurance companies and the majority of general insurance companies. The Association also includes brokers, adjusters and other companies with a bona fide interest in the well-being of the industry who join as associate members.
ATTIC's achievements over the years include working with the Central Bank to expand the remit of the Banking Ombudsman to establish the Office of the Financial Services Ombudsman, the establishment of a Code of Ethics and the provision of annual insurance statistical information. Each year ATTIC makes recommendations to the government, for the National Budget.
ATTIC's Code of Ethics is especially significant to our industry's objective to maintain a high standard of service to our consumers and encourages member companies to agree to acceptable standards of insurance practice.
In order to deal with change, face challenges and successfully take advantage of the numerous opportunities that the unpredictable economic environment throws our way, the insurance industry must continue to be heard through one united voice and that is ATTIC.
