Bankers Insurance Corporation (CBIC) traces its roots from the prestigious
group of Rural Bankers hailing from all regions of the Philippines. CBIC in
part remains closely identified with the rural banking system, having been
founded on October 12, 1960 by the late Don Jose E. Desiderio, Sr., and Don
Alfredo L. Montelibano Sr., both well-known rural bankers.
Founded as an enterprise that will effectively handle the
insurance needs and requirements of rural bankers and country folks as well,
Country Bankers Insurance Corporation (formerly known as Country Bankers
Insurance & Surety Co., Inc.) concentrated its main thrust in the
countryside, servicing small business entrepreneurs, industrialists and the
numerous agri-business ventures all over the country. CBIC with its unique
set-up continues to enjoy steady growth, remarkably maintaining its competitive
edge in the industry, through active yet prudent corporate programs enabling us
to secure the continued support of well-known London Reinsurers.
Having gained a strong foothold in the rural areas, CBIC in 1978,
initiated massive penetration drive to open-up new fronts by expanding its
operations to the urban commercial centers and various corporate accounts. This
pivotal move proved to be a great success so-much-so that CBIC's distribution
networks are now operating in most key-cities, provincial capitals and economic
centers of the country.
Country Bankers Insurance Corporation continues its total
commitment to provide for the insurance needs of what we consider to be the
cornerstone of our country's economy... You!
