Allied Insurance, one of the largest financial institutions and most prominent insurance brands in the country, has partnered with Perspective Pvt Ltd as a Platinum Sponsor of the Hotelier Maldives GM Forum 2018. With over 33 years of experience in the insurance industry, the 100% Maldivian-owned Company aims to help its customers harness a healthy, safe and secure lifestyle.

Allied Insurance was formed in 1985 as a joint venture between Commercial Union Assurance Company, UK and State Trading Organisation (STO). Two years later, STO bought back shares of Commercial Union Assurance chartering Allied Insurance as its subsidiary. Today, Allied Insurance stands as the industry’s leader in insurance; contributing to the growth and development of the country.

The GM Forum, now in its third year, is an annual gathering of general managers and other industry stakeholders which features keynote speeches and panel discussions focused on some of the key topics in the hotel industry today.
