In May 2012, we acquired Tune Insurance Malaysia Berhad (TIMB) which brought us a different sort of network with its 1,000 agents and 19 branches across Malaysia and expanded our ability to cover a wider range of general insurance.

Moving forward, our focus is to enhance our regional footprint concentrating on our key markets and maximizing shareholders’ value with record profits while creating a digital ecosystem for our people and stakeholders, including our customers and partners. The Tune Protect website will serve to connect us with the ones who matter – You.
