HNB Finance inks partnership with HNB Assurance

Agreement makes it more convenient and faster for HNBF customers to obtain insurances

required for overall offerings

Sri Lanka’s leading integrated financial services provider, HNB Finance PLC, has entered into an
exclusive partnership with HNB Assurance PLC, making it significantly easier and faster for HNB Finance
customers to obtain insurances required for most of the offerings from the company.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed recently by the two companies enables HNB Finance
customers to obtain the insurances they require for personal and other offerings from the company,
without even having to leave the premises of HNB Finance. Since representatives of HNB Assurance will
now be stationed at the offices of HNB Finance, the process of obtaining the necessary insurance
policies will be both more convenient and faster, further enhancing the overall customer experience.
“HNB Finance constantly strives to elevate our customer experience, particularly via partnerships with
reputed organisations of the calibre of HNB Assurance,” HNB Finance PLC Managing Director/CEO
Chaminda Prabhath said. “This also serves as an example of the synergies and strengths that HNB
Finance benefit from, by being part of one of Sri Lanka’s largest financial services conglomerates, the
HNB Group.”
“We take pleasure in this partnership with another member of the HNB Group and in offering the
customers of HNB Finance the highly customer-centric offering of HNB Assurance,” HNB Assurance
PLC CEO Lasitha Wimalaratne said. “Superlative customer experience has always been a core pillar of
our strategy and HNB Finance customers can now benefit from these capabilities.”
