Under the partnership, BlueDuck members are entitled to one year of AXA’s SmartHome Optimum (Enhanced) protection, which includes sum insured of RMY10,000 for home contents and RMY130,000 for fire insurance. Damage to buildings caused by fire is covered by the fire insurance while damage to furniture is covered by home contents insurance.

“BlueDuck carries the role of a personal butler for your property – we take care of unnecessary inconveniences from the beginning till the end so that houseowners and tenants do not have to worry about anything in between,” said Earnest Wong, chief executive officer of BlueDuck. “We are pleased to share a common goal with AXA in offering a seamless home rental journey that goes beyond our customers’ needs and most importantly provides them with added value and protection.”

“Our home is one of our biggest investments in life - any loss or damage is highly likely to set us back financially and emotionally,” said Emmanuel Nivet, chief executive officer of AXA Malaysia. “As an insurer, we believe we have the responsibility to play an active role in creating awareness on the importance of risk mitigation and insurance protection across different touch points. Bringing together our expertise and BlueDuck’s strong proposition, our synergy will provide an efficient online ecosystem to both houseowners and tenants, offering affordable yet comprehensive home protection solutions that can be easily accessed anywhere and anytime.”
