HNB General Insurance Ltd. (HNBGI), the fully owned subsidiary of HNB Assurance PLC (HNBA), took the centre stage along with Softlogic Finance, signifying the establishment of a forethought partnership aimed towards ensuring that safety is met on the note of the many motorcyclists in Sri Lanka. The tie-up is set to address the rise of accidents at present particulary involving motorcyclists, triggered by the incomprehension of safety precautions and protocols. 

As such, this collaborative approach was officially initiated at an event partaken by officials of HNBGI and Softlogic Finance, demonstrating that HNBGI will provide insurance for those who finance a motorbike through Softlogic Finance. Present at the event were, HNBA and HNBGI Managing Director/CEO Deepthi Lokuarachchi and Softlogic Finance CEO Nalin Wijekoon.

Lokuarachchi stated: “This is a fine partnership, executed upon consideration of responsiveness to the impact of increasing household incomes, as people are increasingly capable of purchasing a vehicle despite the so-called division of social-classes. 

Drawn out of such, it is clear that motorcyclists being a notable majority of this country, projects a great tendancy to increase over the years to come. 

“Thus, it is of major importance that their safety is assured, which in turn will take its effect spanning across many motor related activities and involvements that are to be conducted safe and sound. This is when, and why, HNBGI will take on a vital role as to instill safety, especially of one’s mode of commute, while this partnership will take on the added essence of Softlogic Finance’s quality business perspective.” 

Wijekoon said: “While expressing my heartiest gratitude towards HNBGI for joining hands with us, I take this moment to place admiration upon the contrast in ways of driving business, which Softlogic Finance has perfectly maneuvered, that is by adopting aspects such as quality and networking while also placing strong emphasis on an ethical facet made evident by this partnership. 

“As of today and on this note, we are knowingly a helping hand for the ever common idiom, ‘dream vehicle’, and even for those who start small, we have provided a tangibilised, quality service without a doubt. I am thankful for all those who have contributed and provided assistance in achieving such a milestone in our road to sustainable business partnerships.”
