His appointment reflects our commitment to accelerate growth in Malaysia where we have a leading life insurance business.

“I would like to thank Leong Hin for strengthening our business in Malaysia over the years, and for his leadership through the pandemic. Over the last 18 months, our employees and agents in Malaysia have demonstrated great courage and agility in meeting the challenges presented by the pandemic. They have also shown tremendous empathy to our customers by doing everything possible to support them through these difficult times.

“I am confident that under Eng Seong’s leadership, our business in Malaysia will emerge stronger and attain even greater success in the coming years.”

Lim Eng Seong said, “I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead this exceptional company. Prudential is a trusted brand in the country with close to 100 years of serving the evolving needs of Malaysians.
