IASL Launches National Life Insurance Month: Here’s what you need to know

1.In a nutshell…

The Insurance Board of Sri Lanka (IBSL) & Insurance Association of Sri Lanka (IASL) have teamed up together with all the life insurance partners in Sri Lanka to launch the national life insurance month from September 1st-September 30th. This initiative has brought all the life insurance firms as we all strive for one goal- to ensure that all Sri Lankan’s are insured.

2.What’s the main focus of Life Insurance Month in Sri Lanka?

At HNB Assurance, we are well known for our famous ‘spirit of caring’, and have joined forces to help safeguard the future for you and your loved ones, hence the reasoning behind our campaign which urges you, the uninsured to get life and live life. The players in the insurance industry are striving to meet 1,000,000 individuals and spread the message about the importance of insurance for all Sri Lankans.

3. The Logo

The initiative looks to tackle a glaring issue; According to Daily ft less than 13% of Sri Lankan’s are covered by life insurance, so this combined effort will be used by the 15 life insurance companies to bring life insurance into 15 new regions around Sri Lanka.

4. What Should I expect during National Life Insurance Month in September?

  • If you don’t have insurance already, expect our friendly insurance advisors to speak to you. We will be issuing leaflets spreading the ‘Get Life, Live Life’ message.
  • We have also planned a bunch of regional street promotions all around Sri Lanka, so do let us know if you come across any!
  • The team has invested significant amounts for TV, Radio and Print advertisements so be on the lookout for those.
  • Visit the official website to catch the latest news and find out when insurance agents will be coming to your town.
  • LIKE their Facebook page for exciting competitions and be aware of the latest information!

The HNB Assurance Blog Celebrates its 1st year, Happy Blogging Anniversary!

1 year ago

We began this particular blog without too much fuss. It was all a bit new, writing about Insurance. We didn’t know it at the time, but we made history; we became the first ever life insurance blog in Sri Lanka. That being said, it was a very simple template which we had, as reflected in the screenshot below.

Yes, the layout was very simple and getting traffic to the blog was certainly a challenge. However, with a fair deal of experimentation the site grew its reach to over 50 countries and now looks like this;

Check out our new look!

Viola, a much more engaging theme which aligns with the corporate colours of HNB Assurance. We have spent a significant focus on writing about how you can improve your health, informed our customers about the basics of insurance and kept you abreast of our companies activities such as winning awards at NASCO, new products launches. The fact that the blog has gained a cult following has ensured that they’ve flooded us with questions, and in turn we have made it a point to answer them.

anniversaryMany more years to come

We’ve been delighted with the level of success the blogs have achieved-yes, blogs! We launched a second blog, http://www.hnbgeneralblog.com which places emphasis on transportation, drunk driving and motor insurance. We’ve been well received on both platforms are pleased with the overall result. However, we feel that there is much left for us to contribute. So thank you, to all our well wishers and to all those who have subscribed all around the world and keep coming back to read our posts. Until next time!

We have a Christmas Present for You: A New Blog!

Hello dear follower,

We like to keep you updated on the latest news. In this case its no different; we’re getting a new blog!!

Update Jan 2, 2015: As promised, our new HNB General Insurance Blog is now active. Check it out

Why?

Pretty simple, as you are well aware, the insurance industry in Sri Lanka is changing. As of Jan 1st, 2015, all insurance firms who offer both life and general insurance need to split into two companies. Thus, we felt it made more sense to have two blogs.

Whats going to change?

This blog, All Things Insurance, will focus primarily on life insurance, while the new blog will place emphasis on All Things General Insurance (ie: Motor Insurance, Vehicle Safety Tips, The latest motor technology etc & Travel).

We intend to have the new blog up and running as of January 2015, so stay tuned!
