20 July, 2022 3 min read


We are pleased to announce that AXA Gulf is now officially GIG Gulf. 


Still three letters, still all capitals, and still the most trusted insurance brand in the market, now present across 13 countries in the region!

With a legacy in the Gulf for over 70 years, we'd like to reassure you that nothing changes for you, your policies, premiums, terms and conditions or provider network. Many of the things you know and love about AXA will remain the same, including our people, products and quality as well as our standards and integrity. We will continue putting you, our valuable customers, at the center of everything we do.


So, what does this mean for you?
You don't have to do anything, and no action is required. Your active policies, contracts and networks will stay exactly the same. When it’s time for renewal, your policies and contracts will be renewed same as before, but under our new GIG Gulf name.

Please visit our new website for more information and our updated announcement page for frequently asked questions or call 800 70 292.


This is only the beginning of our journey. We would like to thank you for your loyalty and trust and look forward to continue working with you as your new #1 regional insurer.
