AmMetLife Insurance Berhad

– Improving the financial health of all Malaysians –

At AmMetLife, we aim to build a more protected world for our customers by providing them with products and services to help them meet their financial needs and live fuller, more secure lives. More importantly, helping Malaysians achieve financial security and improve their financial health through financial education remains our corporate mantra. To ensure AmMetLife plays its part in helping to build more inclusive, financially secure communities, the MetLife Foundation is actively supporting programs in Malaysia aimed at promoting financial health and developing the country’s fast-growing digital economy. In the belief that financial health belongs to everyone, the MetLife Foundation combines financial health expertise and grants to bring solutions to underserved people and communities.

Harnessing technology for greater inclusion

Beginning in 2018, the MetLife Foundation committed $2.5 million to support the United Nations Capital Development Fund’s (UNCDF) i3 program here in Malaysia. Launched in partnership with Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), the i3 program catalyzes on digital technology for the financial inclusion of low-to-moderate income people who lack access to appropriate formal financial services. By leveraging digital technology, the i3 program will seek to reach more than 200,000 low to moderate-income Malaysians over a three-year period to improve their financial health.

Empowering tomorrow’s leaders

Skills based volunteering has become a cornerstone of our philanthropic efforts to bring social good to the communities we serve. With the support of MetLife Foundation, we have partnered Junior Achievement Malaysia on the JA Start-Up Program to drive financial literacy among school children. Our corporate volunteers have reached out to students from rural schools and mentored them in financial management, leadership and entrepreneurial skills. We hope to pave the way to provide these students with the ability to build a foundation of financial security and career accomplishment that will benefit them, their families and their communities.
