About Us
A Brief History
Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance Co., Ltd (TMNF) was founded in 1879 as The Tokio Marine Insurance Company, Ltd. As the name suggests, Tokio Marine began its operations in the marine insurance field, where the Company has long been recognised as the world leader. Throughout its history, the Company has expanded its activities to the extent that it now enjoys a leading position in all areas of the non-life insurance field.

TMNF is Japan's largest non-life insurance company and is placed in the top ranking of non-life insurance companies worldwide.

With approximately 17,400 staff members worldwide, TMNF has a firm base of human talent and financial resources from which it provides insurance coverage for a wide variety of risks, makes major investments to contribute to economic development and is engaged in a program of expanding its international business activities.

Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance Co., Ltd - Australian Branch (TMNFA) and Tokio Marine Management (Australasia) Pty Ltd (TMMA)
In 1963, Tokio Marine opened its first representative office in Sydney and entered into a management agreement with the Queensland Insurance Company (QIC, now known as QBE Insurance Limited) to manage its affairs throughout Australia. In August 1973 a representative office was opened in Melbourne. On April 1st, 1975, after cancelling the agency agreement with QIC, independent operations were commenced in New South Wales and on 1st October of the same year, an office was opened in Melbourne.

As a further step in Tokio Marine's development in Australia, TMMA was incorporated in New South Wales on 30th June, 1977 to act as the underwriting agency and manager of Tokio Marine's Australian portfolio. TMMA is a wholly owned subsidiary of TMNF.

TMNFA (under TMMA’s management) underwrites general insurance other than workers' compensation and motor vehicle compulsory third party insurance. It is engaged predominantly in commercial type business submitted to it either directly from clients, through brokers or from other insurance companies.

TMNFA holds an Australian Financial Services License (AFSL 246548) from the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) and is authorised to underwrite insurance by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).
