Mission & Philosophy
We define market leadership in terms of our market share and the quality of the services we provide in these market segments. Although we seek market share, we do not do so, at the expense of quality and profitability.
We measure service in terms of the extent to which we anticipate and meet the needs of our customers, in the critical areas of security, coverage, cost and claims settlement. We constantly compare ourselves with the best companies within the region.
We employ people who are honest, team players. They are willing to learn, committed to high work standards and achieving results.
We define our financial results in terms of a return on investment which is above average and which is the product of aggressive marketing, prudent underwriting and investment management.
First Class Management
Our management is evaluated in terms of how successful they are in directing and organising the Company towards continual improvement in the management system.
Training and Development
The company’s focus is on providing professional insurance training to bring the skills level of staff and agents to international standards and on a continued path of improvement to proviode quality service.
In undertaking our mission, we adopt the following approach:
- We believe excellence comes from focusing our energies and our resources. Our business is insurance underwriting and we grow and develop as an insurance company. Our interest in other areas is only to the extent that it directly strengthens our competitive advantage in our core business.
- We believe that without customers, we have no business. We therefore ensure that the customer comes first in every aspect of our work organization.
- We believe that our people are our key resources. We therefore recruit the most suitable people available and provide them with opportunities for development, worthwhile careers and a satisfying work environment. We have people we can be proud of view this Company as a challenging yet an enjoyable place to work in.
- We believe that our continued growth depends on our ability to anticipate and adapt to change in a disciplined manner. We therefore always seek to be proactive and to innovate but within the context of thorough planning.
- We believe that we have social responsibilities to the local industry and the community of which we are a part. We therefore seek to contribute to the good standing of the local industry and to be good corporate citizens of Brunei Darussalam.
