A Leading Insurance Company For over 128 years
The mark of distinction for Demerara Mutual is the quality of insurance coverage it provides, the solid security and protection that thousands of policyholders have enjoyed since 1891.
Our History & Purpose
Demerara Mutual’s mantra then, as it is now, was “to encourage thrift and prudence by offering affordable but safe Life Insurance on a basis adapted to the special needs of tropical countries”, according to international journal, The Review, in 1918.
“Sound economic management” was the kind of terminology commonly used to describe Demerara Mutual as it grew and expanded its product range to accommodate changing times. Despite the nuts-and-bolts economics that must govern every business, Demerara Mutual continued to be innovative, providing AFFORDABLE insurance and managing the finances of the ‘smaller man”.
The areas of coverage have grown to encompass group and travel insurance, plus financial coverage for the more delicate aspects of life and living. DM continues to venture and expand its operating territory in the financial marketplace in Guyana and the Eastern Caribbean. Recently the company launched its Go Green Initiative with the focus of moving towards a paperless environment while providing policyholders with easier ways to transact business with the company.
