Overseas Assurance Corporation rebrands as Great Eastern General Insurance in Singapore

Great Eastern To Further Build Its General Insurance Business With Great Eastern General Insurance

Great Eastern Holdings’ general insurance arm, Overseas Assurance Corporation (OAC), has been rebranded Great Eastern General Insurance (GEG) in Singapore, with its operations in Malaysia targeted to follow suit end of August 2017.

The rebranding is part of the company’s strategy to strengthen its focus to further build its general insurance business into a significant pillar of growth for the Great Eastern Group.

More compelling general insurance propositions

Great Eastern Holdings Group CEO Khor Hock Seng shared, “Great Eastern is a brand customers know and trust. With the consolidation of OAC into the Great Eastern brand, there will be greater brand unity across our business lines which will enable us to fully leverage the strengths of our established brand to offer more compelling propositions.

“Our general insurance business has been growing steadily and we fully intend to build on the good momentum. Moving forward, a strategic focus will be to leverage the huge customer database and distribution capabilities of Great Eastern and OCBC Bank and draw on our collective strengths to tap into new growth opportunities to serve individual and corporate customers.

“We remain committed to delivering good value and empowering our customers to make informed decisions regarding insurance solutions to protect their loved ones, their lifestyle and their business. We will continue to provide innovative products and services. We have also made good inroads to enhance digital customer experience.

“We will be boosting our digitalisation capabilities to make it more convenient and easier for customers to do business with us and vice versa. With our Travel Smart Premier mobile app, customers can access information and purchase travel insurance on-the-go 24/7. This is just the start. We will be enhancing our
app capabilities to facilitate the purchase of more products as well as the submission of simple claims in the near future.”
