“18 months ago, we set in motion a plan to establish a bolt-on business that leverages the strong engagement we have with our Gen Z, millennial and SME customers.


As a Malaysia homegrown digital insurer, we believe we can target them with a digital-first approach on a sandbox mode, where one can buy all day-to-day retail insurance solutions, service or claim through an app or website,”

said Rohit Nambiar, Group Chief Executive Officer of Tune Protect.
