“For us at Lazada, our innovations, promotions, and services are all geared at ensuring we address the needs and priorities of those we serve,” Lazada COO Carlos Barrera said. “Through our partnership with Kwik.insure, we are happy to be able to provide our customers with access to a service that is most especially valuable and relevant today."
“Through our partnership with Lazada, we provide millions of Filipinos the opportunity to have insurance against COVID-19,” said Hamilton Angluben, founder and CEO of Kwik.insure. “Given our country’s low insurance penetration rate, majority of them will be first-time insurance availers. The goal is to educate more people about the value of insurance and learn how easy it is to be protected.”
Angluben added that Kwik.insure’s desire to increase insurance penetration in the country and to educate more people about insurance spurred the partnership with Lazada. The company also now offers deals and insurance product bundles to businesses.
According to Statista, the insurance penetration rate in the Philippines was only around 3.04 percent in 2019.
