Hong Kong, May 27, 2019 ── Hong Kong Television Network Limited ("HKTV") today announced an exciting new partnership with FWD Hong Kong (“FWD”) to offer travel insurance on HKTV’s 24-hour online shopping mall, hktvmall.com, or the HKTVmall mobile App anytime and anywhere. 

To celebrate this new launch, from now till June 30, all customers who buy FWD travel insurance on HKTVmall, including single trip and annual travel insurance plan, will be entitled to a 30% discount. Additionally, customers who purchase FWD insurance on May 31 can enjoy an unprecedented extra 5% discount by entering coupon code “5THANKS” at checkout. HKTVmall VIP members (who have accumulated spending of HK$3,000 over a 12-month period) are also entitled to this extra 5% discount offer on VIP days being held every Thursday until June 27.

Chairman of HKTV, Mr. Ricky Wong said, “I am very impressed with FWD’s ‘Get Ready To Live!’ campaign. Their motto of daring to challenge, inspiring the public to celebrate living aligns with the mission of HKTVmall. Currently, HKTVmall is carrying more than 270,000 products and we have moved beyond an online marketplace - we aim to be a digital ecosystem encompassing business operations, trading, retailing, financial services and all aspects of daily lives.” 

“Travel insurance is just the beginning of our upcoming spectrum of financial service products. Other general insurance products, including home, personal accident, medical, critical illness, overseas study, domestic helper and life insurance products (including term life) are also in our pipeline for development and launch in the next 12–18 months. Looking forward, we will continue to widen the product category spectrum and to expand the horizon within different product categories to “Serve Every Aspect of Life”. 

Ken Lau, FWD Managing Director of Greater China & Hong Kong Chief Executive Officer said, “We strive to create fresh and exciting customer experiences with a diversity of service options and easy-to-understand products supported by digital technology as we aim to change the way people feel about insurance. Our partnership with HKTVmall brings us closer to the daily lives of Hong Kong people and simplifies the traditionally slow and tedious insurance purchase process. On top of travel insurance, we’re excited that a wider variety of FWD insurance products will be available on HKTVmall very soon, so we can continue to enhance our customers’ experience.”
