While signing the official contract, Taberna also encouraged Filipinos to acquire casualty insurance from Stronghold.

“Doon tayo knows #SubokNa,” he said.

Taberna said he was grateful for the opportunity to support Stronghold as he himself represents a stronger brand after his career, business and even his family were put to the test due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Those challenges have taught me to be prepared and strong for the worst in any obstacle that life throws at me,” Taberna said.

In March 2022, the Insurance Commission (IC) reported that Stronghold was the third highest paid-up capital among 57 non-life insurance companies.

With a total of P1.5 billion in paid-up capital, as of 2021, the insurance company has seen an annual increase in the number of customers, companies and individuals.

The commission explained that Stronghold’s impressive position in corporate governance was emphasized when it was declared among the top 10 non-life insurance companies in the country, contributing a net worth of over £ 2.3 billion.

The company has grown from very humble beginnings and reached the pinnacle of success after the then Mabuhay Insurance & Guaranty Co., Inc. was founded on March 21, 1960 as a wholly owned Filipino casualty insurance company.

Fire, engine, navy, casualties and surety are among their lines.
