Great Eastern Life Insurance

Great Eastern Life Insurance

For over a century, Great Eastern has been at the forefront of Asia’s insurance industry, providing peace of mind to millions of policyholders. A trusted brand, we continue to go from strength to strength in an ever-changing market.

Founded in 1908, Great Eastern is the oldest and most established life insurance group in Singapore and Malaysia. With S$64.7 billion in assets and around 4.7 million policyholders, we have three successful distribution channels – a tied agency force, bancassurance, and a financial advisory firm, Great Eastern Financial Advisers.

Great Eastern Life Assurance Company Limited have been assigned the financial strength and counterparty credit ratings of ‘AA-‘ by Standard & Poor’s since 2010, one of the highest among Asian life insurance companies.

Great Eastern Life has established offices in Brunei, Vietnam, Indonesia and China serving millions of policyholders in South East Asia. For over 100 years, we have provided financial protection and wealth management products and services to individual and group policyholders in South East Asia.

Great Eastern Life has been in Brunei since 1975 and we are the only foreign life company that has acquired our very own office building, a statement of our commitment in Brunei.

In 2012, Great Eastern refreshed our brand purpose to be a LIFE company, going beyond the traditional role of an insurance company to actively help customers live healthier, better and longer. This is supported by an integrated health and wellness Live Great programme – which provides wellness tools, mobile apps, health tips, workshops and events as well as exclusive privileges – that helps and rewards customers in their journey to better health.

Great Eastern is a subsidiary of OCBC Bank, the second largest financial services group in Southeast Asia by assets. It is one of the world’s most highly-rated banks, with an ‘Aa1’ rating from Moody’s and was also ranked by Bloomberg Markets as the world’s strongest bank in 2011 and 2012.

The Leader in Bancassurance 

Great Eastern was the first insurer – in 1992 – to establish a bancassurance network in Singapore in an exclusive partnership with OCBC Bank. This business was transferred completely to OAC in December 2000. The aggressive strategy to grow this business together with a successful revamp of OAC’s life operations resulted in OAC commanding the lion share of Singapore’s total bancassurance business since 2001. OAC became the first bancassurer in Singapore to cross the $1 billion mark in new bancassurance sales in 2002.

OAC will continue to focus on providing solid customer value and experience by offering needs-based solutions to customers. It will continue to develop new growth opportunities in the bancassurance market, with a focus on delivering the best value and convenience to OCBC Bank customers by offering quality products and customer service.
