Ms Muenfun Thanyaphaisit, Country Manager of Igloo in Thailand, says, “Mobile phones play an integral role in a Thai’s daily lifestyle – from communicating with their friends and family, entertainment to financial services. With our insurance offerings, consumers can not only purchase protection for new phones but also for existing phones – a service that is often difficult and expensive to find in the market. Igloo wants to work with partners to curate innovative insurance products that are easy to purchase, affordable, and which directly impact consumers’ daily lives. These lifestyle-focused insurances allow consumers to experience minimal disruption and financial loss to their daily lives.”
This partnership marks Igloo’s first foray in the telecommunications industry as it widens the portfolio of industries it serves from digital wallet, e-commerce, logistics, automobiles, transportation, telecommunication, banking, travel and hospitality to the gig economy. Earlier, the insurtech partnered with foodpanda Thailand to introduce PandaCare, a protection program for its delivery riders. Regionally, Igloo also works with SEA’s leading e-commerce platform, Shopee, on-demand and SEA’s fastest-growing hotel management platform RedDoorz
