Takaful Malaysia and Allianz Malaysia awarded Best Insurance Companies for 2016
• Awards are based on a study from 2,600 unsolicited responses nationwide, ranking Insurance companies on customer experiences instead of judges decisions
• Awards provide industry measure for consumers in preparation for motor insurance detariffication
KUALA LUMPUR, 15 March 2017 – iBanding Services Sdn. Bhd. (https://www.ibanding.com/)
The study revealed that Syarikat Takaful Malaysia customers are the most satisfied with their insurance services and recommend the motor insurance company to their family and friends more often than other companies. Takaful insurance holders quoted price, quality of service and policy benefits as the top three reasons why an insurance company is preferred.
Group Managing Director of Takaful Malaysia, Dato' Sri Mohamed Hassan Kamil said that Syarikat Takaful Malaysia has been providing general, life, and health insurance for over 30 years, and that the iBanding award served to reinforce their commitment towards its customers, "We are pleased to be recognized as the Best Motor Takaful Company in Malaysia for 2016. This clearly projects a strong indication of our commitment to be the preferred choice for insurance. Our unique proposition of rewarding a 15% cash-back to our General Takaful customers for no claims during their coverage period, including Motor Takaful truly distinguishes us from any competitors in the industry. This award is a testament to the great benefits and undeniable value consistently being delivered to our Motor Takaful customers and further reflects the consumers' approval of our brand and Motor Takaful products as we continue to strive in making life great for them."

It is not surprising that the top three considerations cited by Takaful insurance holders were the same ones cited by Conventional insurance policy holders. For these consumers, Allianz Malaysia was able to provide top-notch service, resulting in them winning the Best Motor Insurance Company in 2016.
iBanding's Awards – Empowering Consumers to make Informed Decisions
iBanding's recognition of Syarikat Takaful Malaysia and Allianz Malaysia as the best motor insurance providers in 2016 is not like any other award within the industry. Besides providing valuable insights from its annual study, iBanding's yearly ranking of motor insurance companies for both Conventional and Takaful motor insurance provides consumers with the knowledge and confidence to choose the best insurance company that is right for them.
Luke Roho, Co-Founder of iBanding elaborates, "For the past 30 years, Malaysians do not feel that it was necessary to shop around to compare different motor insurance policies. This was because motor insurance prices have been regulated by a tariff structure, which is set by Bank Negara Malaysia. This will change with the introduction of Motor Detariffication (https://www.ibanding.com/
Roho added that consumers will have to be ready for the changes that follow Motor Detariffication, "After detariffication is implemented, consumers may find buying motor insurance to be a bit more complicated. This is because insurance companies or agents will now ask a lot more questions. This additional information will help insurance companies decide if you are a safe driver or a risky driver, which will ultimately affect the price of the insurance plan. If the insurance company decides that you're more of a risky driver than a safe one, the price of your insurance will be higher. This means that two individuals purchasing the same car model may have to pay different insurance prices based on various considerations like occupation and traffic violations. With so many options to consider, it can be overwhelming especially for first time buyers. iBanding helps consumers select the right company through its annual Motor Insurance Award."
iBanding is the first of its kind company in Malaysia that offers transparent, independent consumer insights into the motor insurance industry, "We are in a great position to lead the industry after detariffication is implemented, as there is no other independent company that provides insights into consumer experiences for motor insurance. We take this responsibility seriously and are dedicated to help consumers learn more on insurance, and provide independent information to Malaysians, so that they can find the best motor insurance for them," concluded Roho.
