Read more about our insurance company:
Slavia insurance company has its roots very closely associated with the origins of the insurance business in Bohemia. It follows the successful tradition of one of the oldest and most important financial institutions – mutual funds, capital, and pension insuring bank Slavia, whose clients included many of the important political and cultural figures of the time. For example, the emerging Slavia bank was backed by František Palacký, and its original employees even included the writer Jaroslav Hašek.
The foundations of the insuring bank of the time were laid as far back as 1868. The insurance company saw unprecedented development in the following decades, and it has become a recognised financial institution with international activity. The growth of Slavia's trade was especially intensive in the years 1924 – 1929, when the insurance company had a capital share in a total of eleven insurance institutions, of which eight were in Czechoslovakia, and three overseas. The most important founding act overseas was Slavia company's holding in Lion insurance company in New York, USA, in March 1928. The activities of Slavia insurance company were brought to an end by the nationalisation of the insurance business in 1945, and they were not restored until the nineties, when permission to carry out activities was also granted to other insurance institutions.
