NUA History
 
Nassau Underwriters Agency Ltd. was established in August 1966 through the amalgamation of the insurance interests of Solomon Brother Ltd., Sir George Roberts, and Sir Stafford Sands.

The insurance interests of R.H. Curry & Co. Ltd., were acquired in 1975, followed in 1978 with the purchase of the insurance portfolio of Inter-Island Insurance Services. Our Freeport office opened in 1979.

Of most far-reaching importance was the formation of Bahamas First General Insurance Company Limited (BFG) in 1982. The new company started business on January 1, 1983, with Nassau Underwriters retaining a 30 per cent interest in BFG.

In September 1996, Bahamas First Holdings Limited (BFH) was formed, incorporating the shareholding base of BFG and Nassau Underwriters as wholly owned subsidiaries of BFH.

Two years later BFH acquired Allied Bahamas Insurance Co. Ltd. and the portfolios of Peter Cole & Associates and T. Dan Albury Insurance. The latter two agencies were initially merged to form Cole Albury Insurance Agency which was subsequently taken in under Nassau Underwriters Cole Albury Insurance Agency Limited (NUCA). Allied's portfolio was taken over by BFG.

In January 2006, NUCA purchased the sub-agency portfolio of Sam Gray Insurance and established a branch office in George Town, Exuma.

Two months later, NUCA changed its name to Nassau Underwriters Agency Insurance Agents & Brokers Limited, otherwise known as Nassau Insurance Agents & Brokers, or NUA.

In April 2009 Carib Insurance Brokers & Agents Ltd. and Moseley Burnside Insurance Agency Ltd. became part of NUA in a move that combined the strengths and experience of the three companies and created greater convenience for its general insurance customers.

Moseley Burnside Insurance Agency Ltd. became part of BFH in 1998. Carib became part of the group in 2007.
