Aguas said InLife will leverage on Oona’s capability-building and value-creation capacity to strengthen their reach and allow both to increase relevance and cooperation.

“The complementary strengths of both companies will propel both companies to leadership position in providing relevant and timely solutions to the current and evolving needs of our markets,” Aguas said.

“This will give us more arsenal to pursue our growth trajectory for our non-life businesses as we become stronger players in the digital economy,” he added.

Abhisek Bhatia, Oona group chief executive officer said they are delighted to partner with InLife.

“Together we will build the leading digital general insurer in the country. Our shared values of customer first and digital enablement will drive future growth for the business,” Bhatia said.
