“Allianz Malaysia’s appetite for digital change has allowed us to capitalise on tremendous new opportunities and explore innovation-led collaborations for the last couple of years. Our general insurance arm, Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad, was an early partner of insurance technology firm PolicyStreet and online property rental platform SPEEDHOME which are two of Gobi’s portfolio companies. So, we are delighted to join Gobi Partners as one of their LPs. This is our first investment in a VC, and we look forward to the milestones we can accomplish together,” Allianz Malaysia Berhad CEO, Sean Wang said.
