Alfa Insurance, a history

Alfa Insurance Brokers was founded by current Chairman and Founding Director, Mr Emanuel John Comino AM, OAM, JP, who has practiced as a General Insurance Broker and Agent since 1961.

The company name was chosen to reflect the principles and high standards symbolised by the first letter of the Greek alphabet and in fact the original company logo was a logotype derived from this ancient source.

You may have gathered that our founder is of Greek ancestry… and you’d be right. A passionate supporter of the Sydney Greek community, Emanuel Comino has received many awards during his lifetime and career, with the Member Order of Australia in 2010 being the most recent and his community work through the Order of AHEPA.. He is also perhaps the most outspoken campaigner and a tireless worker in his endeavours to see the return of the Parthenon Marbles to their true home in Greece.

Today, Alfa Insurance Brokers continues to operate by high business principles and standards under the management of Emanuel’s sons, Greg and John Comino who offer personal attention and an extensive range of insurance services to a loyal and growing client base.
