Sampath Bank functions as the one stop shop or point of contact for customers in their insurance requirements. There is no requirement for them to visit the Insurance companies instead   they can obtain the insurance policies from the bank’s 210 branches while attending to their banking transactions. The bank provides them quotations from all companies within one hour and facilitates the customer to select a quality product at a competitive price. The customer can focus on his day-to-day banking activities in peace of mind while the bank arranges the required policy. Bancassurance in Sri Lankan context is an arrangement between a bank and insurance companies whereby the bank facilitates its customers to obtain insurance. In this process a insurance company employs a minimum sales force. Bancassurance plays a major role in worldwide insurance and dominates several major European markets such as France, Italy, USA, Canada and some areas in Asia. Sampath Bank has embarked into this challenging task of increasing the awareness of general public on Insurance while assisting them in obtaining quality insurance solutions.
