投资人信託保险 大马设东南亚枢纽

(吉隆坡10日讯)由于看中大马经济表现与多元文化特质,投资人信託保险公司(ITA)选择將大马设为东南亚市场的首个立足点,並將深耕国內高净值人士的岸外投资保险业务。

ITA董事经理潘恩披露,由于大马教育水平高、拥有多元文化、政治稳定且亲商的环境,该公司有意將大马作为其东南亚区域枢纽。该公司早前已在香港设立北亚枢纽,並有意透过大马与东南亚市场,持续扩张其亚洲业务。

资產管理规模料突破9亿美元

潘恩冀望,ITA的资產管理规模,將从目前的6亿5300万美元,升增至2014年的9亿1500万美元。他指出,ITA专注于拉丁美洲等地的发展中国家,也秉持多语言的营销方式,因此相信大马的多元文化环境有利于该公司在区域市场的营运和扩张行动。

潘恩是在ITA举办的媒体匯报会上,向媒体作如此披露。

潘恩表示,ITA无意通过大举招纳代理,而是通过独立財务顾问来销售其投资保险產品。此外,该公司也无意增设分行,而是计划直接让现有的吉隆坡分行打造成东南亚枢纽。

基于其持有的是纳闽岸外金融服务执照,因此其客户仅限于高净值人士。根据国家银行的定义,高净值人士必须是每月有能力投保1250令吉,或一次过投保2万令吉的人士。

此外,ITA將把客户的投保额投资在国际基金和资本市场,包括標准普尔500指数,因此国內其它的普通人寿保险业者,並不是其直接竞爭对手。有別于国內投资连接保险產品的客户,受到投资额和投保额的分配限制,ITA的客户將享有更多的决定权。
