Insurance provider, Chubb, and Atome, a Southeast Asia digital financial services platform, announced a regional partnership to help drive consumer protection across Southeast Asia.

The partnership will enable both companies to co-create a range of insurance products available to Atome’s customers in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia.

The first insurance product, Bill Secure, is available in Singapore and Malaysia. Targeted at consumers using buy now, pay later services, Bill Secure covers up to five times the transaction amount of the purchase price in the event of permanent disability or accidental death. The claims payout enables the insured or their next-of-kin to settle the payment of the purchased item while the remaining balance goes to the insured or their estate.

Atome and Chubb will launch a second insurance product, Shopping Secure, in the second quarter of this year, according to a Chubb press release.
