Consumers in Latin America are poised to receive a wider range of specialty insurance and assistance-related service offerings thanks to a new agreement between Iké Asistencia (Iké) and Assurant Solutions.
Assurant Solutions, a part of Assurant, Inc., offers extended warranty programs for mobile devices, electronic goods, household appliances and vehicles, as well as financial protection products and pre-funded funeral insurance. Assurant Solutions serves more than 100 million consumers in 12 countries worldwide.
Iké, the largest independently owned assistance business in Latin America, provides more than 18 million consumers with roadside assistance, home assistance, travel, mobile and other protection products offered mostly through banks, retailers, automobile manufacturers and telecommunications companies.
The two market leaders will collaborate in offering their clients a complementary and
broader product set to meet the needs of consumers in Latin America.
“This is a valuable relationship that will benefit our clients and their customers,” said Iké Chairman of the Board José Canasi y Azar.
“Assurant’s specialty protection expertise will enable us to build on our well-established reputation of service for our clients and customers in Mexico and throughout Latin America.”
From help when a car breaks down to international travel planning, pet care, medical assistance and legal resources, Iké takes care of its customers in a variety of ways. Similarly, Assurant Solutions protects items consumers value such as smartphones, major appliances, TVs and jewelry, keeping them safe from mechanical breakdown, accidental damage, loss and theft.
Not only are Iké’s assistance services a natural complement to Assurant Solution’s portfolio of insurance and protection products, the two companies enjoy a growing presence in Latin America. Combined Assurant Solutions and Iké operate in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Puerto Rico, Colombia and Venezuela.
“As we move forward, Iké and Assurant Solutions will work together to help customers keep their lives running smoothly, making life easier and protecting the things that matter most to them,” said Craig Lemasters, president and CEO of Assurant Solutions.
