Finally, The New Zealand Insurance Institute had agreed to include Thailand Insurance Institute to become one of its associated education partners on July 21, 1980.

The initial shareholders were derived from 75 companies who were conducting general insurance and life insurance business, rendering the company to be officially named “T.I.I. Company Limited”, being an abbreviation of Thailand Insurance Institute. This had to comply with the Insurance Act B.E. 2510 not allowing the registered company to use the wording of “insurance” containing in its registered name unless it was allowed to legally operate insurance business
Thailand Insurance Institute , standing in the name of “T.I.I. Company Limited ” consisted of 15 board of directors, all of whom had to be approved in the shareholders meeting prior to their business conduct. Mr. Chalor Fuengarom, Director of the Insurance Department, The Ministry of Commerce was the first Chairman of the Institute.
