Etiqa Insurance launches first-in-market online purchase of commercial insurance for SMEs in Singapore

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 8 January
2019 - Business owners of small
to medium size enterprises (SMEs) can now purchase commercial insurance
tailored to their business needs online with Etiqa Insurance Singapore. The
innovative digital insurer launched the Business Owners Super Suite (BOSS),
which allows business owners and Etiqa's agents to get commercial insurance
coverage easily and conveniently in a straight-through purchase journey,
marking yet another FinTech solution in Singapore's commercial insurance


In recent years, studies have found that SMEs
remain underinsured, or non-insured, and in need of proper risk management
plans. Taking into considerations that cost is one of the main concerns,
Etiqa's new BOSS packages are designed to be affordable and easily accessible
to time-strapped business owners.


"There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but
the data-driven BOSS packages are specially tailored to cater to the needs of
SMEs of various trades. Business owners and their agents can easily refer to
the standard package in their trade, and make adjustments according to their
business status," said Sue Chi Kong, Chief Executive Officer of Etiqa Insurance


No stranger to digital disruptions in
insurance, Etiqa is leveraging on enhanced technology and connectivity to gauge
risks and offer direct, tailored business coverage on its website while keeping
operation costs at minimal. Sue added, "Purchasing business insurance typically
involves much paperwork, which is often processed offline. With BOSS and our
new online purchase option, customers can save time, enjoy better convenience
and savings."


Split across six categories, BOSS by Etiqa
Insurance caters to SMEs of various trades such as office, retail, light
industries, personal services, among others. Business owners have the
flexibility to choose between standard plan or super suites, for coverage that
includes all risks, business interruption, money, personal accidents, public
liability, work injury compensation, goods in transit and optional covers.
