Wow CFS you increase premiums 100% in 3 years and now think how wonderful you are with a tiny % decrease.
Such a tiny % decrease you won’t even state how little it is ????
Come on Jassmyn you need to report better than this.
What is the % saved ???

Got nothing to do with the fact AIA owns comminsure now? Yes they are pumping up the old comminsure clients premiums to give CFS cheap default cover through AIA, which is also guilty of pumping up premiums big time. What a wicked web they weave, this is where the real crooks operate.

Oh but Hang on...it was a 'competitive tender process' don't you know! Let me guess AIA/CommInsure, TAL, MetLife et al submitted pricing of the entire book...no beauty parade needed as the usual suspects are still at the helm. Rinse and repeat for 2024, absolute farce really.
