Who we are

Established in 1947, Al-Ittihad Al-Watani is one of the pioneers of Middle Eastern insurance with branches in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The company became part of the Nasco Insurance Group family following an acquisition in December 2016, and ever since, 

Al-Ittihad Al-Watani benefits from the support and know-how of a major regional insurance group.



What we do

Al-Ittihad Al-Watani offers diverse products across all the general lines.

The company only selects reliable “A-rated” reinsurers for maximum financial protection, a robust pillar for your insurance portfolio.

Insurance is more than our business, it is our vocation. Our service level and enthusiasm are never influenced by the size of the client: You will get our undivided attention whether you are an individual, an SME or a mega-corporation.





Supporting the year of sustainability

The Year of Sustainability marks a new era for the UAE’s collective progress as it addresses the importance of sustainability focusing on land, resources and humans, and inspires a nationwide commitment for us today, and for future generations.





How we do it

Utmost good faith is the basis of our trade. Our testimony is given through the thousands of satisfied clients whom we had the pleasure of serving for half a century. Throughout these years, our guiding principles were always about going the extra mile, a culture of teamwork, and putting the client first.
