A Fresh Start

Insurance - - EDITOR'S NOTE - Dato' Haji Syed Mo­heeb Syed Ka­marulza­man Edi­tor in­sur­anceed­i­tor@mii.org.my

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile, leave foot­prints on our hearts and we are never ever the same. It is with a heavy heart that I an­nounce the de­par­ture of Puan Khadi­jah Ab­dul­lah from the ed­i­to­rial team, she has moved on to an­other chap­ter in her work­ing ca­reer and en­gag­ing new chal­lenges. We are un­doubt­edly grate­ful for her ex­cel­lent ser­vice to the In­sur­ance mag­a­zine and hope she will con­tinue to sup­port us. I am ex­cited to take on the reins of this mag­a­zine as I con­tinue to hear pos­i­tive feed­back from both MII mem­bers and the pub­lic. I know that the ed­i­to­rial team puts a lot of ef­fort scour­ing for ar­ti­cles and in­ter­views that will be use­ful and in­for­ma­tive to read­ers. We are fi­nally reach­ing our goal of nur­tur­ing this mag­a­zine to be the plat­form for in­dus­try in­for­ma­tion and views. We wish to thank our specialist writ­ers who have brought depth and new per­spec­tive to the mag­a­zine and we urge more read­ers to par­tic­i­pate in up­lift­ing the stan­dard and range of ar­ti­cles. As the cover in­di­cates, we have Jens Re­ich, CEO of Al­lianz Malaysia dis­cussing their plans for the fu­ture. An in­for­ma­tive read backed up with great sta­tis­tics that clearly paint a brighter pic­ture of the fu­ture of Al­lianz Malaysia. Telem­at­ics is cur­rently mak­ing waves in the states and will even­tu­ally reach our shores; the fea­ture pro­vided by The Dig­i­tal In­surer breaks down this new and ex­cit­ing fea­ture on mo­tor in­sur­ance. We should be all so lucky to be eval­u­ated on our in­di­vid­ual driv­ing skills and not a col­lab­o­ra­tive one within our age groups. Get the big pic­ture here. The rest of the is­sue ex­plores gen­eral life in­sur­ance in Ja­pan as well as claims from dis­as­ters in the Philip­pines, of­fice eti­quette, per­ils of silo men­tal­ity and so much more. We have in­cluded a thor­ough write up on the re­cent In­ter­na­tional Claim Con­fer­ence held just weeks ago some of the high­lights from the event. I am aware I have big shoes to fill as edi­tor but I am con­fi­dent that our ed­i­to­rial team will con­tinue to bring you the best the in­dus­try has to of­fer, from in­for­ma­tion to trends to per­son­al­i­ties, we’ve got it cov­ered.

En­joy this is­sue!
