Health Insurance / Takaful Coverage for Novel Coronavirus (2019-NCOV)

The Life Insurance Association of Malaysia (LIAM) and Malaysian Takaful Association (MTA) wish to inform that all life insurance companies and takaful operators will provide hospitalisation coverage/treatment due to Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) to their policyholders/certificate holders.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has just declared the outbreak of the coronavirus as a global health emergency.

“Even though a majority of the medical policies/certificates carry an exclusion on communicable diseases requiring quarantine by law, the Malaysian life insurers and takaful operators are responding to an immediate need of the nation by waiving the exclusion on quarantine by law in light of the increasing number of people who have been affected,” announced by Mr Mark O’Dell, Chief Executive Officer of LIAM.

[Property] Really can "Rent with Zero Deposit" with SPEEDHOME ???

Renting a house through online platforms has become a new trend. However, what catches the attention is the “ZERO Deposits” package to help the tenant to rent easier.

Is it true?
How could it be?
It is good for renters, but, how about landlords?

Established in 2015, Speedrent Technology Sdn Bhd combines protection and technological innovation in the house rental and property market.

Partnered with Allianz General Insurance since 2017, the company provides an accessible and secure home rental platform for landlords and tenants. Landlords can secure their property with Allianz General Insurance up to RM42,000 or room up to RM 3,700 while tenants can rent with ZERO Deposit.

Wait... Speedrent?

Yup, that's the previous name. 
In 2019, Speedrent started a new chapter and rebranded it - as SPEEDHOME !!! Open an account (click here).

How it works actually?
