In 1928, Francis Anjo established Anjo Insurances, expanding the family business into the insurance agency, which was a wise move as he foresaw the vulnerability of the islanders to natural disasters and the increase in accessibility of motor vehicles, which in turn required motor insurance.
Anjo Insurances started off as agents for Caledonian Insurance and later for Atlas Insurance Company, both hailing from the UK. At that time, the Atlas company covered bigger properties. However, due to a reshuffle in the UK, these companies became part of the Guardian Royal Exchange Group in the ’70s, and Anjo Insurances became their representative.
As business in the Caribbean flourished in the following years, local companies such as those in Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad gained traction, leading the call for indigenous insurance providers. As the Guardian Exchange Group anticipated the shift in dynamics, they promoted the establishment of United Insurance Company in Barbados, which came to be in 1979. This company consolidated the agencies of The Royal Insurance Co. and The Guardian Royal Exchange in Barbados. By 1984, The Guardian Royal Exchange had encouraged their Antiguan agents, Anjo Insurances, to transition from their company to United Insurance, then to Massy United Insurance, and now to CG United, of which they are still agents.
Today, Anjo Insurances is a part of AWH Holdings Ltd, a group of companies comprising Antigua nationals of multiple generations who continue to serve the people of Antigua and Barbuda across various private, mercantile, and insurance sectors.
Starting out on High Street and later relocating to Long Street, the insurance department expanded as more citizens recognized the need for their services, while the Anjo brand built a reputation synonymous with trust and honesty. In 2000, the company moved to its current main location at Woods Centre.
