AIG Asia Pacific Wins General Insurance Company of the Year at the 22nd Asia Insurance Industry Awards

Kuala Lumpur, Nov 12, 2018 – AIG Asia Pacific Insurance was named General Insurance Company of the Year at the prestigious 22nd Asia Insurance Industry Awards.

Now in its 22nd year, the Asia Insurance Industry Awards has become a much sought-after mark of excellence and peer group endorsement for insurance players and professionals in the market. The award for General Insurance Company of the Year recognizes outstanding performance in the area of general insurance through product innovation, dealing with customers and intermediaries, and business growth.

Antony Lee, CEO of AIG Malaysia Insurance Berhad, said the award is testament to the company’s commitment to serve the Malaysian community through innovative solutions.

“In a modernised world where risks are ever-changing there is nothing more important than protection, to future-proof what we do. The market is becoming increasingly liberalised and as we offer solutions tailored to the needs of an individual or a business, we aim to simplify general insurance – in line with our #AIGJagaYou promise – to democratise insurance and better serve Malaysians.”

The #AIGJagaYou campaign is a customer-centric nationwide campaign launched last year to demystify general insurance among Malaysians by doing things differently. #AIGJagaYou hopes to help Malaysians better understand the importance of insurance protection, through awareness and education programmes, with industry players and communities.

“We have dedicated ourselves to safeguarding Malaysian communities for the past 66 years, while keeping the customer at the heart of our innovation. We will continue to build upon our vast network of regional and global expertise to provide meaningful solutions for Malaysians’ personal and professional journeys” Antony adds.
