Through our experience in servicing 1.6 million customers and our strong partnerships with various insurance companies, we ensure smiles of our customer by taking care of every need. Our journey began as Manappuram Financial Services on 17th Oct 2002, as a corporate agent to the then leading private sector Insurance companies. In 2003, it was renamed as Manappuram Insurance agents and broker ltd. The main activities then included representing the products of the manufacturers to the customers. Realizing that the needs of the customers aren’t fulfilled by standard products by the manufacturer, we shifted our focus to representing the customers to the manufacturer and serving the needs of the customers. Thus, in 2006, the company became a licensed Broker with IRDAI and changed its identity to Manappuram Insurance broker pvt. ltd. acting as a link between the manufacturer and customers. Since then our growth has been steady. In 2017, with a change in management and new leadership, we moved our base to Valapad, Kerala and announced the change of identity as Manappuram Insurance broker limited a.k.a MAIBRO. From then we have served the needs of 2 million satisfied customers till date. Our strength has been our presence Pan – India through the branch network of the Manappuram group companies. We source our business mainly through Retail, embedded and the group platforms. We also opened up a customer care contact center at Hyderabad to address the queries, requests and complaints of customers. Today, we are one of the largest distributors in the retail segment and is one of the most sought after partner for various insurance companies.

For much of its life, the Manappuram name was strongly identified with the village of Valapad where it was established in 1949, and where it functioned as a single branch business involved in money lending and pawn broking on a modest scale. This was how remained until 1986, when its founder Shri V.C. Padmanabhan (father of Shri V.P. Nandakumar) passed away.
Remarkably, even as it remained a business with strictly limited reach, it had managed to become a highly successful and greatly trusted brand with deep roots in the local community.Read more..
