In 1971 late Savvas Tzanis, traditional insurer and legal representative in Greece since 1959 of the British Insurance Company RELIANCE MARINE Insurance Co, founded "IMPERIAL HELLAS", General Insurance Company S.A. (GG 63/6-2-1971 Report S.A. & LTD).

Imperial was the first Insurance Company introduced in Greece with P.D. 400/1970.

Our successful course in the field of private insurance continues for more than 50 years. During theses 50 years we have provided insurance support to people as well as small or large businesses in all sectors of commerce, industry, shipping, transport and motor.

Since the Company’s foundation, Tzanis family remains its single shareholders.

Imperial Insurance Co. has always been represented in all institutions of the Greek Insurance market and its representative has been regularly and repeatedly elected  member of the Board of Directors of the Hellenic Association of Insurance Companies (1989-2005), the Motor Insurer’s Bureau-Greece, the Greek Guarantee Fund, as well as - amongst various Committees in Greece and Europe – the Management Committee of the Council of Bureau (CoB) in 2008, with the latter being the most significant and honourable election.

IMPERIAL HELLAS SA has earned the confidence of an exceptional clientele and has been excelled for its reliability and consistency towards its insureds and partners. In terms of financial strength related to the risks underwritten, Imperial has been listed among the most powerful insurance companies in Greece, while its annual financial statements have continually shown profit throughout its long lasting presence.

For many decades IMPERIAL Insurance Co. has been particularly honoured by the confidence provided by ETHNIKI INSURANCE SA, who has been its exclusive reinsurer and guarantor of all risks underwritten by the former. In 2008 and following the decision of its BoD, IMPERIAL took the initiative to conclude a cooperation agreement of strategic importance with DEMCO Insurance Company, to which the insurance portfolio was transferred. Since 2009, IMPERIAL has been acting as an Insurance Broker and claims settlement company. Additionally, IMPERIAL examines investment opportunities in sectors where it may drive its capital overflows and aims at exploiting its big real estate in the best possible way. By the end of year 2008, the affiliated company of Claims Management with the trademark IMPERIAL CLAIMS SERVICES- Your Reliable Partner "SAVVAS TZANIS & Co." E.E.(Limited Prartnership) is founded.

The big achievements of IMPERIAL SA during the last 10 years in the field of motor International Claims Handling and Settlement, the know-how gained through its cooperation with two well known international loss adjusting  organisations DEKRA Claims & Experts Services and INTEREUROPE A.G, as well as the increasing and expanding activities in this field, led to the establishment of another separate, independent company specialised exclusively in the international and Greek claims settlement. In January 2009 the company IMPERIAL CLAIMS SERVICESAlbania is founded in Tirana. These two companies offer to the insurance industry the best services in the field of international motor claims settlement and other expertise services relating to assessing, investigating and analyzing motor accidents.
