The Top Partnership Distribution Award is in recognition of FWD Insurance’s strategic partnership with Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) for its first digital microinsurance product – Qaseh Bakti, leveraging technology while demonstrating innovation, collaboration and a commitment to expanding reach and enhancing customer experiences.

First in the insurance market to leverage the ever-familiar QR code technology, Qaseh Bakti is digitally enabled to provide easy accessibility with a simple enrolment process. Developed with the aim of revolutionising the insurance landscape in Malaysia, Qaseh Bakti has already impacted over 65,000 lives since its introduction in 2023. This truly underscores FWD Insurance’s commitment to providing inclusive, accessible, and affordable insurance solutions to every Malaysian.

“As a customer-led and digitally enabled company, we believe in harnessing the power of digital innovation to redefine the insurance experience, “said Aman Chowla, Chief Executive Officer of FWD Insurance Berhad.

“This award is testament to our ongoing commitment of changing the way people feel about insurance by making it easy to understand, accessible, and affordable to every Malaysian. Providing accessibility through the innovative use of technology, we are committed to expanding the reach of insurance to unserved and underserved segments of communities all over the nation.”

Building on the success of Qaseh Bakti, FWD Insurance and BSN have introduced its successor, Qaseh Bakti Plus in 2024, to increase financial inclusions throughout Malaysia by providing more comprehensive coverage in terms of hospital cash benefits.

This enhanced product continues to uphold FWD Insurance’s promise of empowering individuals and families with comprehensive protection tailored to their needs.
