Opens First Customer Service Centre in Singapore
One-stop Centre Caters to Growing Customer Base
Singapore, 2 October 2015 — Etiqa Insurance will open a new customer service centre at 16 Raffles Quay on 2 October, as part of its expansion in the country. The life and general
insurer aims to enhance consumer experience by offering services conveniently at its onestop centre.
Customers can pay premiums, make changes to their policies, enquire in person about products and even transact online at Etiqa@Robinson. The centre is located at Hong Leong Building.
The centre features a self-service cafe and online kiosk where consumers can renew Housing & Development Board’s (HDB) basic fire insurance online, or buy other products such as Direct Purchase Insurance, travel and home contents insurance.
Etiqa’s insurance advisers will also be based at the centre to provide financial advice.
Despite having started operations in Singapore in 1961, the customer service centre is Etiqa’s first in the country.
Etiqa received a license to sell life insurance in 2014, expanding beyond its general insurance business.
“As we grow our business in Singapore, we continue to be focused on what our customers need,” said Mr. Sue Chi Kong, Chief Executive Officer of Etiqa Insurance Pte. Ltd.
“We aim to make everything as simple as possible for them through the services we offer at our conveniently located one-stop centre,” he said.
The centre is opened from 8:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday (Hotline: 6887 8777).
