resident’s Message

Taking over as President of the Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM) in March 2009, I prepared myself for the expected challenging tasks ahead. All my predecessors, as LIAM Presidents, had set remarkably high standards during their terms of office. Their numerous contributions to the insurance industry were indeed matchless. The operating environment of the life insurance industry has been subject to significant changes due to new regulations which are moving towards greater transparency and consumer protection. The Association has been kept busy with meetings and dialogues with regulators as well as consolidating the response from the industry on possible impact to consumers, intermediaries and stakeholders. Despite these challenging conditions, I am pleased to report that the Malaysian life insurance industry has weathered through these difficult times, accomplishing many of the objectives identified for the year.

These achievements would not have been possible without the support and confidence from my fellow Chief Executive Officers. Their strong team spirit and wise counsel have provided invaluable guidance in helping me to chart the strategic direction of LIAM. It is now my privilege to report on the key developments and activities of the life insurance industry in 2009.

Risk-Based Capital Framework
The Risk-Based Capital (RBC) framework came into effect on 1 January 2009 after two years of parallel run with the previous solvency regime. The new capital requirement provides greater flexibility for insurers to operate at different capital adequacy levels that commensurate with their risk profiles. A new set of valuation rules was also introduced to ensure that assets and liabilities are valued in a realistic and marketconsistent manner.

ANNUAL REPORT 2009

In March 2009, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) introduced temporary flexibility for life insurers to base the discount rate used in RBC on weighted basis to moderate the impact of fluctuating interest rates.

Guidelines on Bancassurance
The Guidelines on Bancassurance was further revised in April 2009 in-line with the liberalization of the financial services sector. Insurers were allowed to enter into bancassurance arrangements with any number of bancassurance partners. Previously, foreign insurance companies were only allowed to tie up with one local bank. To further enhance bancassurance as an alternative distribution channel, the compensation package was revised to include an additional 5% production bonus and 10% persistency bonus. Disclosure of commission, which was introduced for the bancassurance channel in 2004, continued to be reinforced under the revised Guidelines. As at 31 December 2009, a total of 8,081 financial institution employees representing 17 financial institutions were registered with LIAM as personnel who sell insurance under bancassurance arrangements.

interests of consumers must be emphasized in the development, marketing and sale of new products. To ensure that all life insurers subscribe to a minimum standard for the TCF requirement, LIAM engaged an actuarial consulting firm in December 2009 to develop a best practice framework for the industry. The framework would specify the necessary information to be provided to the customers during the sales process, after- sales and during the policy exit process. This would include minimum standards of disclosures in the form of relevant, timely, reliable, consistent and comparable information.

Budget 2010
a) Micro-Insurance In the Budget 2010, the Government unveiled the plan to introduce a micro insurance scheme aimed at assisting low income small business owners in securing financial protection. It was announced that for a premium of RM20 per month, coverage of between RM10,000 and RM20,000 could be granted. This was a positive move as insurance protection could be extended to a large majority of the population. LIAM had prepared a preliminary proposal for the micro insurance scheme to be packaged with micro-financing offered by the banks. The proposal would be discussed with various stakeholders who include BNM, Persatuan Insurans Am Malaysia (PIAM) and Malaysian Takaful Association (MTA). b) Tax Relief for Annuity Plans The Government had also increased the tax relief for EPF contribution and life insurance premiums from RM6,000 to RM7,000. This additional RM1,000 was granted for annuity premiums of plans offered by insurance companies. This incentive was most appropriate to support the development of retirement schemes by life insurance companies. Demographically, by the year 2020, Malaysia would have close to 10% of its population aged above 60 years. It is

Development of “Treat Customers Fairly (TCF)” Framework
With effect from 1 July 2009, BNM liberalized the rules on product approval and waived the requirement of a 30-day filing in advance with BNM. Under the new Guidelines on Introduction of New Products for Insurance Companies and Takaful Products, insurers are now allowed to launch products without having to obtain BNM’s prior approval. However, the board and senior management would now be entrusted with greater responsibility to ensure that product risks are well managed and customers’ rights are respected. Insurers are expected to develop a “Treat Your Customers Fairly (TCF)” policy where the
