What’s Next As General Insurers And Takaful Operators Prepare For The Unknown Poser Of The Phased Liberalisation Roadmap

The liberalisation roadmap (specifically referred to as the “Phased Liberalisation of Motor and Fire Tariffs” and referenced as BNM/RH/PD 029-8) had been put into effect on 1st July 2016 (by Bank Negara) but so far what have the General Insurers and General Takaful Operators been doing….?

The 2014 Motor Insurance Premium Rates are out and taking effect as from 15th February 2014. Of course there are increases but I do not foresee the premium increase is going to be damaging to the wallet, rather a soft landing for the rakyat and yet enable both insurers and takaful operators to cash-in on some additional premiums to better cope with the deteriorating trend of our country’s motor insurance losses, if at all the Malaysian Motor Insurance Pool (MMIP) is taken into consideration. And yes, this is the third such increase since 2012….
