Entrepreneur rebuilds business from the ashes with help from AXA

In 2016, a fire in Benguet made headlines as it destroyed a warehouse—one that was owned by entrepreneur Kenneth So, and one that provided stable jobs for a lot of workers. So and his team, some of them very loyal employees that had been with him for a long time, could only watch as years of hard work went up in smoke in a matter of hours.


So was grateful that the insurance company he chose—AXA Philippines through its general insurance subsidiary Charter Ping An—swiftly came to his rescue and went the extra mile to process his claim promptly so he could get back on his feet as soon as possible.


So’s business, Granville Corporation Supply Holdings, is a strong player in the competitive supply chain industry. The company plays a key role in the logistics and distribution of fast moving consumer goods across key markets. So employs 400 people to ensure prompt servicing of customers

The fire destroyed Grandville’s four-storey warehouse in La Trinidad, Benguet, and millions of pesos in inventory. Fortunately, So had the foresight to get a comprehensive fire insurance coverage from leading global insurer AXA. His loyal staff also rallied together during a truly trying time. The company is now slowly but surely recovering.


The ease and speed with which So was able to receive his insurance claims and the attentive and dedicated service he received from AXA helped ease his burden. “Now, our warehouse is being rebuilt,” So says. “This is the start of a new beginning.”


So’s experience with AXA is proof of AXA’s unwavering commitment to its customers, backed by superior financial strength and worldwide reach, to be there when it is most needed. It assures clients like So, whose employees and their families count on for their livelihood, can live the life he chooses—free from uncertainty and anxiety, no matter what challenges he has to face.

#GerifiedPH: Travel the World with Peace of Mind

The adventurous part of you is constantly curious about what is actually out there – we are actually born to discover, and travelling is the perfect way to feed our curiosity. With wider access to roads, airline fees and travel packages becoming more and more affordable, the wonder to wander is inevitably exciting!

You just have to be doubly sure that sunset at the California beach feels different with the view of Aurora Borealis in Iceland, and that the constant salty breeze of the Caribbean sea is way hotter than the dewy fog of the highlands in Alaska, that Greenland is actually covered with white snow, and for the hopeless romantics, your forever is living in the suburbs of France riding a bicycle waiting for you to run him a little over…

The Worries

What if, by neglect, you lost your passport?

What if, by stroke of ill-fate, your luggages are stolen?

What if, by any chance, you got involved on an accident abroad?

We can actually wonder and the possibilities are audaciously lethal. Waiting for the bad things to happen is not a good habit…

But that annoying sane-freaky part of you is actually designed to keep you alive; why, these are just some of the unforeseen but very possible inconveniences and unanticipated emergencies that could occur when travelling, hence, in the sense of feeding your curiosity, you have to learn how to compromise – or better yet, keep your sane-freaky part at peace.

With Malayan Travel Master, you won’t have to.

One on one meeting when getting life insurance is best, but for non-life insurance like traveling, meeting up at the branch or with a broker is actually an inconvenience! Simply because the time is very limited since you have to secure your travel dates first before actually purchasing one. Some may even think of adding travel insurance in the last minute! Hence, Malayan Insurance encourages travellers and jet-setters to use their online channels for quick transactions, easy communications and outlined researches.

You can research and buy Malayan Travel Master at http://www.malayan.com/products/packaged/travel-master but of course, you can still consult and ask questions to any Malayan Insurance agent and broker.

Let Travel Master take care of your expenses from being the immediate access to resources for appropriate treatment to covering emergency medical treatment, even to the extent of follow-up care and daily incidental expenses involved in hospital confinement.

Personal Liability – Filipinos are driving on the left side of the road, what if you risk in driving on the left and you accidentally hurt someone or damage a property? Or say, that you’re the bicycle rider who run over the lad? Travel Master will shoulder these risks so you can enjoy starting your getting-to-know stage that’ll, if odds are indeed in your favour, probably lead you to a wedding trip. Just make sure you won’t risk running over, this time!

If the trip has been cancelled within 30 days prior to the scheduled, the Emergency Trip Cancellation feature will reimburse even the non-refundable portion of travel and accommodation expense. In any case, the termination or cancellation of the trip must result from death or life threatening sickness or injury of the insured, or from a member of the immediate family requiring immediate medical attention.

Travel Inconvenience Benefits – Losing important travel documents can make an adventure a disaster. Travel Master offers benefits for loss of documents, baggage. It even covers baggage delay, flight delay due to severe weather, mechanical trouble, strikes, and even skyjacking!

Value Added Features – Gear up and run the extra-mile! On top of all the coverage and benefits mentioned above, Travel Master also provides free insurance coverage for damaged rental cars and medical assistance and treatment services for accidents resulting from sports activities.


People cringe and sometimes, people feels awkward and uncomfortable when talking about inconveniences brought by unanticipated accidents and untimely emergencies especially when on travelling, because who wants accidents to happen, right? Some even believes that thinking about it can actually attract it. Right again, you’re not!

In reality, thinking about the worst-case scenarios and doing something to prevent it can actually save you. In any given circumstances, nothing’s more annoying than a planned vacation ruined just by being neglectful and unprepared. Do you want your sane-freaky part to run in your head, shouting “I knew it!” again and again instead of mentally patting yourself in the back while basking in the sun?

Make your travel worry-free and with peace of mind, by prioritizing Malayan Travel Master on your travel checklist, because working in the concrete jungle for so long, you deserve worry-free adventures!
