HNB General Insurance, Hatton National Bank Renew Adhishtana Partnership

HNB General Insurance Limited (HNBGI), one of the fastest growing general insurance providers and a proud member of the HNB Group, marks a significant milestone with the renewal of its partnership with Hatton National Bank PLC (HNB). This partnership expansion aims to enhance the range of insurance coverage and services accessible to customers enrolled in HNB's Adhishtana loan program. 

Adhishtana, HNB's savings scheme tailored for Sri Lankan nationals employed abroad, is well-regarded for facilitating pre-departure loans. The partnership between HNBGI and HNB, initiated in 2023 to provide comprehensive insurance coverage to Adhishtana customers, has undergone a significant overhaul in renewal and the revamp introduces a more extensive array of services and benefits, positioning it as the best means of financial security and protection for those seeking foreign employment.

In the renewed partnership, HNBGI now covers additional categories of Sri Lankan migrant workers and their immediate family members. The Adhishtana partnership between HNB and HNBGI is conducted in collaboration with the Association of Licensed Foreign Employment Agencies (ALFEA). 

HNB General Insurance CEO Sithumina Jayasundara said "Recognizing the pivotal role played by Sri Lankan employees abroad in contributing to our economy, especially in the current context, it is our national obligation to express gratitude. The revitalized Adhishtana partnership with HNB stands as a significant achievement, as it not only enhances our service for foreign employees but also elevates it to a new level by providing additional benefits and extending coverage to a wider range of professionals." 

"Given the escalating number of Sri Lankan professionals actively pursuing employment opportunities abroad each month, it is imperative for us to elevate our service offerings and fortify our support for them. The ongoing partnership with HNB GI provides substantial peace of mind to our expanding customer base concerning their financial security and protection. This underscores our commitment as the HNB Group to capitalize on our respective strengths and deliver integrated services that truly resonate with our customers," stated HNB DGM – Retail Banking Group, Sanjay Wijemanne.
