SCUA Far East Co. Ltd. was originated from the Marine Claims Department of Aall & Co., which was founded in Japan by Mr. Aall Jacob Benjaminsen in 1904 and thereafter taken over by the Monsen family in 1954.
Scandinavian Underwriters A/S, Oslo, Norway set up a joint venture company – Aall Scandinavian Underwriters Far East Agency Co., Ltd. on the 1st January, 1987 (50% Aall – 50% Scandinavian Underwriters). By the end of 1989, the agreement with Aall & Co. expired, and the Norwegian Underwriters became sole owners.
