BSP Life’s $1 billion investment portfolio is the kind of commitment we want from the private sector for growth and prosperity in our country.

Those were the words of Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka as he says the People’s Coalition Government's is committed to nurturing a business environment that is conducive to investments and economic growth.

The Prime Minister says the government will foster an environment where the public and private sector can thrive together, leveraging on each other’s strengths for the benefit of our people.

He also strongly encourages collaboration within the private sector and a stronger partnership between our large institutions, including BSP Life, the Fiji National Provident Fund, Fijian Holdings, I-taukei Trust Fund and Unit Trust of Fiji to build a better Fiji.

Rabuka says he and his late father were part of the insurance company's early history when the Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Society of Australia provided insurance cover for them.

He says this first colonial insurance company has evolved due to the acquisition of its business to what we now know as BSP Life.

Since 1876, BSP Life has been supporting approximately 100,000 customers with life and health insurance needs.
