Bancassurance is entrenched as a winning strategy in Asia! There is still the rush to get more bank partners to ensure more outlets for priority distribution. There is also the urgency to get the deals to work as partners reassess their ties with lessons learnt from the past and the amazing successes in the market. Insurers are making greater demands on banks while themselves being under pressure from banks to offer innovative products that will meet the changing lifestyle needs of banking clients. Insurers are seeing the shift in emphasis from distribution to delivery while regulators are under pressure to allow banks to take on more insurers as partners. Insurers are still on the look-out for alternative channels to maximize their reach and expand the customer base. And with the global economic uncertainties, there is also the need to keep costs down. Can the cost of bancassurance be brought down? Is bancassurance facing threats from other channels? Can regulations be made more conducive to bancassurance? These are some of the critical priority issues that will be tackled at this Conference in Jakarta with the focus on growth and development and drawing lessons from the past and around the world. The two-day Conference will bring together experts and leaders from around the region to share ideas and provide insights on how to sharpen skills on implementing sophisticated distribution strategies and forming strategic alliances to make bancassurance efficient and cost effective.
