“ELife is an online platform that allows new and current customers to view and select a life insurance plan that meets their needs and complete the application process online without any need to physically meet with an advisor or fill out any paperwork. They can apply for life insurance anytime, day or night,” said Norman Wilson, sales manager at Sagicor Life in the Cayman Islands, in a recent news release.

The company said that “the new platform will streamline applications and provide responses within 48 hours or less — provided clients upload all of the requisite documents and successfully complete their online applications.”
“The launch of eLife is timely as more of our clients are looking for safer and more convenient ways to access our services. Our online platform adheres to the highest online security standards and utilises secure data protection protocols to ensure that our clients' personal information is safe at all times,” added Sagicor Country Manager Tatiana Brown in speaking to the platform's ability to safely secure the personal information of customers.
