ACTIVA International Insurance Company (Ghana) Limited started operations in Ghana as Global Alliance Insurance which was incorporated in January 2005 and licensed to write short term general insurance business. The parent company of Global Alliance was Global Alliance Holdings, a company incorporated in the Isle of Man with head office in South Africa and sister companies in other south-eastern and southern African countries such as Angola, Botswana and Mozambique.
Global Alliance climbed to the 9th position (out of 23 companies) in the Ghanaian insurance industry within four years as at the end of 2008.
In April 2009, Global Alliance Insurance was fully acquired by ACTIVA Assurances, a Pan-African insurer and the originator of the Globus Network following the approval of the National Insurance Commission (NIC) of Ghana.
