Strategic investments in digital transformation continue to remain an area of focus. The Company has also entered into strategic partnerships with AG Cars Services and Aster Healthcare to strengthen our Motor and Medical insurance solutions. In addition, “Health Extend” medical solution has recently been launched with a unique top-up offering for corporate and individual customers.
Commenting on the results, Jean-Louis Laurent Josi, Chief Executive Officer at Sukoon, said, “The results are a clear reflection of our industry-leading initiatives, robust financial strength, and exceptional liquidity to settle valid claims timely and our vision to be a reference for customer excellence. With the strong foundations, we will continue to focus our efforts on digital transformation, improving technical expertise, implementing lean initiatives, and enhancing customer satisfaction.”
