What is bancassurance?

Bancassurance is a partnership between a bank and an insurance company, where insurance products and services are offered through a bank. It eliminates the need for customers to go through a separate insurance company to purchase insurance, as they can buy it directly from their bank. By partnering with insurance companies, banks can offer their customers a wider range of financial products.


How does bancassurance work?

When buying insurance through a bank, the bank acts as an intermediary between the customer and the insurance company. The bank will assess the customer’s financial situation and recommend insurance products tailored to their needs. Once the customer has decided on an insurance product, the bank will handle all the paperwork, payments and other administrative tasks.


Creating win-win experiences.

For banks. 

Additional revenue streams.
By offering insurance products, banks can generate additional revenue streams and boost their profits.

Improved customer retention.
Since customers can access insurance products through their bank, they’re more likely to remain loyal to their bank for all their financial needs.

Diversification of product offerings.
By offering a broader range of financial products and services, banks can attract a larger customer base and differentiate themselves from competitors. 


For insurers.

Access to a wider customer base.
By partnering with banks, insurance companies can tap into the existing customer base of the bank and offer insurance products to a wider audience.

Lower distribution costs.
Since banks act as intermediaries, insurers can save on distribution costs and offer more competitive pricing to customers.


For consumers. 

By purchasing insurance products through their bank, customers can enjoy a one-stop-shop for all their financial needs, saving them time and effort.

Special offers and discounts.
Many banks offer special discounts on insurance products for their customers, providing them with cost-effective solutions for their insurance needs.
