A New Per­spec­tive…

Insurance - - CONTENTS - Khadi­jah Ab­dul­lah Edi­tor in­sur­anceed­i­tor@mii.org.my

Iam happy to bring a fresh per­spec­tive to the IN­SUR­ANCE mag­a­zine be­gin­ning with this is­sue. The mag­a­zine has evolved since its hum­ble be­gin­nings. It per­co­lates new ideas from the younger gen­er­a­tion of pro­fes­sion­als while bring­ing it to a new in­tel­lec­tual tra­jec­tory with the wis­dom of the se­nior fra­ter­nity.

As part of our en­deav­our to con­tin­u­ously im­prove and add value to our mem­bers and read­ers, please al­low me to briefly share with you how the pub­li­ca­tion has evolved since 2009. The MII News was orig­i­nally a mem­ber-based pub­li­ca­tion that pro­vided mem­bers with up­dates on the In­sti­tute’s train­ing pro­grammes, events, ac­tiv­i­ties, mem­ber­ship an­nounce­ments and oc­ca­sion­ally, fea­ture ar­ti­cles. Over time, we felt the need to meet the pro­fes­sion’s ca­reer de­vel­op­ment in an ever chang­ing and chal­leng­ing fi­nan­cial ser­vices en­vi­ron­ment. So we em­barked on trans­form­ing the mag­a­zine in a way that mem­bers will be able to ap­ply the knowl­edge gleaned from the mag­a­zine, the cour­ses and ac­tiv­i­ties that they have at­tended at the In­sti­tute into their lives and ca­reers. This is one of the many means of sup­port that the In­sti­tute pro­vides to our mem­bers. Just to give you a brief high­light on the con­tents of this is­sue; the Cover Story deals with the is­sue of cor­po­rate gov­er­nance which is al­ways a sig­nif­i­cant topic for fi­nan­cial ser­vices in­sti­tu­tions. Navin Pas­richa in Un­in­tended Gov­er­nance

Chal­lenges For CEOs ex­plains that cor­po­rate gov­er­nance ar­range­ments in listed com­pa­nies have been im­prov­ing over the years, and there have been a num­ber of rea­sons for this, I shall let you dis­cover these rea­sons for yourself. An­other topic which is a con­cern to the in­dus­try is mo­tor in­sur­ance de-tar­if­fi­ca­tion, which was cer­tainly a hot topic dur­ing the Third Malaysia In­sur­ance Sum­mit in Kuala Lumpur late last year.

Chal­lenges Ahead for De-tar­if­fi­ca­tion talks about what the in­dus­try needs to de­velop in terms of a sys­tem that works and the ed­u­ca­tion that is re­quired for both staff and the pub­lic to make de-tar­if­fi­ca­tion a re­al­ity. You will also find a pot­pourri of ar­ti­cles con­trib­uted from a va­ri­ety of sources in­clud­ing ar­ti­cles from our very own MII mem­bers. The ar­ti­cles that are con­trib­uted by our mem­bers are: Fact Ver­sus Mis­con­cep­tion by Billy Gum­bang

CMII, AMII and Net­work­ing Tips for In­tro­verts by Hairul Hilmi Ram­lee, AMII. We would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank our con­trib­u­tors and loyal mem­bers and read­ers for your con­tin­ued sup­port. We are open to re­ceiv­ing your thoughts on the re­freshed look of the mag­a­zine. Feel free to share your com­ments for im­prove­ment or if you wish to con­trib­ute an ar­ti­cle please con­tact us through in­sur­anceed­i­tor@mii.org.my. In more ways than one, we hope that the fresh look and de­sign will ex­cite you to look for­ward to fu­ture pub­li­ca­tions of IN­SUR­ANCE!
