When Dalin was looking for ways to help fund her youngest brother’s education, she weighed up her options. After careful consideration, in 2013 Dalin and her family decided to purchase Manulife’s Education Protector, a solution that combines life insurance protection with savings for education.
It’s a decision that paid off. Earlier this year, Dalin’s family received their maturity benefit from the Education Protector, the first payout of its kind in Cambodia’s life insurance industry.
“It’s a dream that comes true,” says Dalin. “At that time, I attended a Manulife seminar about life insurance and I was very interested in long-term financial planning and financial protection. I started to think about savings for my youngest brother for his high school education.”
After the seminar, Dalin sat down with her parents to discuss what she’d learnt. They agreed it was time to start their savings journey, and that Manulife’s Education Protector was the solution that best suited their needs. Seven years on and the family is delighted with the outcome.
“I’m also very proud to know we’re the first family to get the maturity benefit in Cambodia.” Dalin says. “It’s a great feeling that I am able to support my brother’s high school education financially.”
Manulife entered Cambodia in 2012 as the first wholly foreign owned life insurance company in the Kingdom. In October of that year, four months after its inception, the company handled its first life insurance claim – which was also a first for Cambodia. Manulife Cambodia is now protecting more than 120,000 families across the country.
“We are excited to see our customers achieving their long-term financial goals with us. To us, this is just a beginning,” says Justin Helferich, CEO and General Manager of Manulife Cambodia. “We look forward to seeing more customers getting their maturity benefits from Manulife.”
