PRAGATI INSURANCE LIMITED was established in 1986. A group of young entrepreneurs of Bangladesh who had earlier launched a commercial Bank in the private sector sponsored the company with 30 million Taka capital. Sponsors included shipping magnets, Engineers, Road Builders, Top Garment Exporters and Importers.
Market size of Bangladesh in the non-life sector was Tk.1,050 million in 1986. It has grown to Tk.12,284.20 million in 2009. With the arrival of private sector power companies like AES, gas giants like UNOCAL, SHELL and discovery of new off shore gas in the Bay of Bengal and other private sector infrastructure industry in the country, it is expected that there would be quantum jump in the non-life insurance premium portfolio in Bangladesh once the decision as to utilization or export of gas is taken by the Govt.
