LOLC Life Assurance, recently entered into a strategic Bancassurance partnership with Bank of Ceylon (BOC) to strengthen its Bancassurance portfolio and to offer its array of insurance products to a wider customer base. As a result of this strategic tie-up, the clientele of Bank of Ceylon can experience the exceptional range of products and services offered by LOLC Life Assurance Limited.
The Memorandum of Understanding between the two organisations was signed at the Head Office premises of BOC in the presence of the Chief Executive Officer of LOLC Insurance, Mr. Kithsiri Gunawardena, Chief Operating Officer of LOLC Life Assurance, Mrs. Nadika Opatha, DGM, Bank of Ceylon, Mr. C. Amarasinghe, AGM, Bank of Ceylon, Mr Y. A. Jayathilaka along with other senior management members of both organisations.
Boasting Sri Lanka’s second largest bank branch network, Bank of Ceylon has 642 branches covering 10 regions island wide. The bank will be provided with an online quotation system (ISF BANCA) to generate quotations and issue confirmations independently by the auto underwriting feature (FCL) which covers up to Rs. 3mn for Non Housing and 6Mn for Housing. The auto underwriting feature is an additional benefit for the bank as the credit officer is in a position to close the bank customer’s loan facility in real time without any delay. To minimise the usage of paper, LOLC Life underwriting has accommodated the facility of uploading the policy schedule and document to the BANCA system so that it will simplify and fast track the process and also make it possible for branches to directly access the documents in order to facilitate top-up loans without contacting LOLC Life.
