MetLife Bangladesh CEO Ala Ahmad shared, “The main objective of Bancassurance is to increase insurance accessibility. The partnership between MetLife and BRAC Bank, two trusted financial institutions, demonstrates a strategic fit aimed at expanding the reach of insurance among the people of Bangladesh. This significant collaboration supports the country’s drive to strengthen financial empowerment, allowing customers to confidently incorporate MetLife’s world-class insurance protection in their financial planning.”

This strategic collaboration between two of Bangladesh’s brands in banking and insurance is expected to enhance the financial services landscape significantly, offering customers integrated solutions for their banking and insurance needs.
