Founder & CEO
Val Jihsuan Yap
A former banker at OCBC Bank. Previously, she worked in Regulatory Risk Assurance for PwC London after graduating from Imperial College London. She started PolicyPal early this year, mobile first insurance management platform for you to organise all consumers' existing policies, giving them a peace of mind, so that they always have access to their insurance policies even if the unexpected happens.
The idea struck her when her family member's health insurance claim was rejected as it was lapsed for a few months. The "aha" moment came -- how to help people manage, track and figure out their insurance. It takes a long time to shop around for new policies and often it is not clear what we are covered for and what the premium difference is.
PolicyPal also aims to curb the hard selling and mis-selling problems in the insurance industry by bringing transparency. They would like to empower consumers to make the right decisions for their needs and deliver a social impact.
