AIA Myanmar announced last week that it has entered into a partnership with AYA Financial Group and Max Myanmar Group (AFG Max) to form AIA Myanmar to offer life, health and wellness insurance offerings to AFG Max’s extensive retail customer and business partner ecosystem.
The partnership is the first of its kind in Myanmar and represents a long-term, strategic and purpose-led partnership between AIA and AFG Max, the companies said.
“The partnership will focus on making strong social impact and providing insurance offerings to people of Myanmar, through a combination of AIA’s deep insurance experience across Asia-Pacific and AFG Max’s local expertise.
