Our Businesses

For over a century, Great Eastern has been at the forefront of Asia’s insurance industry, providing financial security and peace of mind to millions.

A trusted name in insurance, we continue to grow from strength to strength in an ever-changing increasingly competitive landscape.

A legacy in life insurance

Founded in 1908, Great Eastern is the most established life insurance group in Singapore and Malaysia. With over S$100 billion in assets and more than 13 million policyholders, including 10.5 million from government schemes, we provide insurance solutions to customers through three successful distribution channels – a tied agency force, bancassurance, and financial advisory firm, Great Eastern Financial Advisers.

The Group also operates in Indonesia and Brunei and has a presence in China as well as a representative office in Myanmar.

Great Eastern is a subsidiary of OCBC Bank, established in Singapore since 1932. Our asset management subsidiary, Lion Global Investors Limited, is one of the largest private sector asset management companies in Southeast Asia.

The Great Eastern Life Assurance Company Limited and Great Eastern General Insurance Limited have been assigned the financial strength and counterparty credit ratings of "AA-" by S&P Global Ratings since 2010, one of the highest among Asian life insurance companies.

A leader in bancassurance

Great Eastern became the first insurer to establish a bancassurance network in Singapore in an exclusive partnership with OCBC Bank in 1992. Since then, we have strengthened our partnership and continue to be a market leader in bancassurance as we develop new growth opportunities in this area, to deliver our quality solutions and customer service with convenience to OCBC customers.
