This study examines the role played by NAICOM in the institution of good corporate governance culture in the Nigerian insurance industry. This was done by determining how successful the NAICOM, as the insurance industry regulator, has been in instilling a sound corporate governance culture in the industry. The Nigerian insurance industry have over the years been plagued by under-capitalization, poor human capital and professional skills, poor returns on capital, insurance premium flight, trust and confidence issues and poor corporate governance structures. However, with the introduction of the code of good corporate governance for the insurance industry, it is expected that these factors inhibiting the growth of the industry will be mitigated. In order to conduct the study, a survey research design was adopted, using questionnaire and interviews as the major instruments for collecting data. The data so collected was analysed using ANOVA SPSS tool. At the end of data gathering and analysis, the study revealed that NAICOM and, in particular, the code of good corporate governance has played a key role in the institution of relatively good corporate governance standards in Nigeria’s insurance industry. The study thus recommends that NAICOM 2009 code be amalgamated with other industry specific codes and given statutory backing, such that breach of the provisions may attract penalty.
