“We are thrilled to be joining forces with ThaiRe Life, an established local reinsurer in delivering opportunities to significantly transform and redefine the local life insurance industry,” Gill added. “Together with our technology subsidiary, UnderwriteMe, our partnership will bring our vision of making life insurance more accessible and affordable a reality for the people of Thailand.”


Suchin Wanglee, Chairman of the Board at ThaiRe Life, also commented: “We sincerely appreciate having Pacific Life Re’s confidence in us by entering into this long-term strategic partnership. We’re confident that this partnership will be long lasting and mutually beneficial to both parties.”
