Ho Chi Minh City, 12 December 2019 - Asia Commercial Joint Stock Bank ("ACB") and FWD Vietnam Life Insurance Company Limited ("FWD") announced today they have entered into a landmark e-bancassurance partnership, the first of its kind in Vietnam.

Under this cooperation, ACB will become the first bank in Vietnam to provide completely online insurance products on its website platform. The partnership will allow ACB customers to buy simple and easy-to-understand insurance products from FWD on ACB's website with just a few clicks.

FWD Cancer Care, with annual premiums starting from VND99,000, will be the first product launched through the online platform. Both ACB and FWD are confident customers will enjoy a fresh, convenient and enhanced insurance experience through this revolutionary e-bancassurance partnership.

Besides traditional distribution networks such as transaction offices, branches, ACB is constantly developing internet banking and mobile applications. We believe that through this partnership with FWD - an insurance partner has a prominent advantage in digitalization, ACB will enhance the diversity of service channels, helping ACB's customers to easily purchase bancassurance products anywhere, anytime."

Mr. Huynh Huu Khang, CEO of FWD Vietnam said: "We're absolutely thrilled to partner with ACB. The partnership between the two parties shares the same purpose of providing the right financial products for customers and leading customer experience via state-of-the-art technological innovation.
