AIA's new venture in Myanmar will see them partnering local firms such as AYA Financial Group and Max Myanmar Group (AFG Max) to set up a life insurance project, according to local media Myanmar Times.
The partnership will leverage on AFG Max's extensive retail customer and business partner networks to offer life and health insurance in Myanmar.
AIA was recently awarded licences by the Ministry of Planning, Finance and Industry to operate a wholly owned subsidiary in Myanmar. They are one of the five international insurers to have received the licences.
“The partnership will focus on making strong social impact and providing insurance offerings to people of Myanmar, through a combination of AIA’s deep insurance experience across Asia-Pacific and AFG Max’s local expertise,” AIA said in a statement. “The partnership also aims to raise the awareness of life and health insurance in the country, which are crucial to help Myanmar people live healthier, longer, better lives.”
