We are proud that our efforts have been acknowledged and recognised through this award,” he added that the award is the reflection of its employee’s dedication and hard work. “This is their award,” he concluded.
PruBSN is joint venture between Prudential PLC and Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN). The takaful operator offers a range of innovative and tailor-made products to its wide customer base in Malaysia. These products include the PruBSN Ummah, a protection plan which combines a savings plan with a plan to help members meet their spiritual commitments (such as Hajj allowance) and the PruBSN Takaful Health2 plan, which offers a medical card and comprehensive coverage in case a member requires hospitalisation, surgery or outpatient treatment. This plan also rewards certificate holders with no claims bonus if they do not make any claim in a year.
