Calvo’s Insurance Underwriters (CIU) and Calvo's Selectcare
Calvo’s Insurance Underwriters (CIU) is the cornerstone of Calvo Enterprises. It was the first of the Calvo companies, established in 1938 by Eduardo T. “Jake” Calvo, who began selling fire and typhoon insurance out of his home. What began as a part-time job is now the largest insurance provider on Guam. Spearheaded by Paul Calvo Jr., Calvo’s Insurance has over 100 employees, three offices in Guam, a branch office in Saipan and a branch in Palau. Calvo’s insurance offers the full range of auto, home, health, life, property, marine cargo, casualty, bonding and liability insurance coverage. As the market leader on Guam, the company collects more than $60 million in premiums annually. CIU’s credibility is bolstered by its strong partners abroad such as American International Group (AIG) and Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance Company of Japan. Calvo’s insurance dominates the market by providing an affordable comprehensive insurance plan and by offering an extensive network to its customers. Calvo’s renowned SelectCare medical plan allows access to more than 100 physicians and clinics in the region, as well as more than 350,000 health care providers in the United States and Philippines. Every year CIU continues to set the standard and stay at the leading edge of the insurance industry.
