About DirectAsia

Our Story

DirectAsia launched in Singapore in 2010 with a goal of changing the face of insurance in Asia.

We believed customers deserved (and still do!):

  • Quick, convenient online insurance
  • Clear, jargon-free choices with transparent pricing
  • Direct access to and custom control over their policy

And since our launch, that's exactly what we’ve worked to give our customers.

Today we have expanded on our success in Singapore and are now giving customers online access to insurance in Thailand.

We are humbled by the support we have received over the years and will continue to innovate and come up with unique offerings for our customers while keeping our premiums affordable.

We have a hugely experienced team of insurance professionals who have worked in the most demanding of countries where direct online insurance is the norm. Though our team includes citizens from more than 15 countries, we remain a local company.

Policy Owners' Protection Scheme (PPF Scheme)

As a fully licensed insurance company registered by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Direct Asia Insurance Singapore Pte Ltd is a member of the PPF Scheme that protects the interests of policyholders in the event an insurer fails. It provides added assurance that there is a compensation scheme for policy owners to reduce the financial scheme impact on individuals in the event an insurer defaults. The PPF Scheme is administered by The Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (SDIC).
