Testimonials & Referral Notes
Thank You Hendri!
I’d like to take this chance to thank Hendri for being there for us all these while. I remember vividly that i was so lost when my mum was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. But Hendri was there at every step of the way. From the initial visit to the doctor to the first surgery to the second surgery and to the chemotherapy. Ensuring we get the best medical attention and reassuring us that we do not need to worry about the bills as my mum is fully covered. Claims are always processed at lighting speed!
Being a client that just had her family policies transferred to you and you honestly don’t gain anything from it, you really didn’t have to do all these. But you still go out of your way to constantly check on us and update us about the claims. And i really appreciate it.
Recently, when my little girl needed to be hospitalized because of a bad fall. I was alone in the hospital with a crying child while the nurses was asking me about insurance stuff and my husband wasn’t able to pick up the phone. I was helpless. I called you and you picked up the phone almost immediately and talk to the nurses. You even offered to come down to the hospital to assist me if i needed any help.
I love how he is so genuine and reliable. He always put himself in our shoes and think for us when reviewing our policies. And i know my family is in good hands and i am forever thankful to have Hendri as my agent.
Jeanie and Zhiyong (Director of Song Fa Bak Kut Teh)
I'd like to thank Hendri Kamarudin, who has been helping me in advising my/my family's insurance needs since 2009 (bro, man, it's been that long! And more years to come!). To date, I think more importantly, is the 100% claims success rate where I have personally witnessed and experienced him "fighting" to ensure our claims are approved. Or to remove a particular exclusion.
If you're thinking to get insurance or not to get, the answer is simple: you cannot afford NOT to get. Please get. It's insurance, and when you need it, you need it. You can't buy when you need it - you have to buy in advance and in anticipation.
This year 2017 we had more health needs:
Personal example #1: Earlier this year in 2017, we visited lovely Khao Yai, a 4-hours drive from Bangkok, Thailand. Unfortunately, on the last day, I got hit with a really bad gastric/stomach condition, and had 5+ days of diarrhea (self medicating during that time). 5th day, I visited a very experienced gastro consultant who warded me and treated me. Problem went away within hours (I know, I should have seen doctor earlier since I'm covered. Ugh). Total is $6k++, covered.
Personal example #2: Again in his year itself, in 2017, I had to undergo a shoulder surgery that costed $23k++. I went to Mount Elizabeth Novena, got a very experienced shoulder surgeon Dr Ramesh from Centre For Orthopedics, got operated on, rested and got out. Covered and cashless.
Personal example #3: Again, this year, when our little boy David was born, Hendri had actually BEFORE our kid was born, advised us to buy BUPA specifically for pregnancy. Result? $26k+ covered for our delivery in Mount E Novena with top notch gynae (Dr Arthur Tseng) of our choice.
Total of the three personal examples would be $55k++. Our insurance cost? Definitely much, much cheaper than that.
You know, because of Hendri, I am almost never worried about medical care and costs in Singapore, even when we travel. He has made sure that myself and my family has more than enough health coverage for all our needs that meets our lifestyle and budget. He is my de-facto go-to-guy for all things insurance.
As a husband, father and businessman, I am most comforted to have experienced successfully claiming insurance when we faced health accidents, and that Hendri is always just a text away. Even when he's on holiday/weird timing - he replies! I've always told him that his job is one of the hardest job in the world, because he responds, checks and advises me what I need to know and do next for medical/health coverage, very promptly. He is truly a professional, accountable and trustworthy agent who's proven himself to me (and his other clients) again and again and again.
And the speed that he works to get your claims through is unbelievable - many people are told that we usually take months to get claims approved and payout, but in my experience with Hendri: weeks. Fastest is 1-2 weeks. (Disclaimer: you as the patient/policyholder has to quickly get the relevant documents eg receipts, referral forms etc, and Hendri will "gently and persistently" chase you for them, so that he can quickly get it processed and claim for you so you can quickly claim - it's a good thing - he will follow up till your claims are approved/settled. *This is the key performance indicator, because he cares that your claims are approved and cheque paid out as quickly as possible)
If you're not covered yet, or looking to revise or add to your insurance portfolio: I highly endorse and recommend that you connect with Hendri based on past performance, experience and outcomes. He provides such an important and precious peace of heart and mind for medical insurance and coverage.
Hendri, you are a blessing to myself and my family for your top-notch health/insurance services. Thank you.
Nigel Chua, Director And Founder Of Phoenix Rehab
老实说，一向以来我不太相信保险。人到中年，生活负担自然很重，总觉得保费是能省则省。感谢主，认识了Hendri，我观念从此改变！他的专业和真诚，就不赘述了。事实胜过雄辩：除了例常的肠胃镜检查，我在过去3年做了心脏支架和缩胃手术，体重从100多公斤降到80多，所有的指标都正常了，让我有信心和体力面对人生的下半场。谢谢Hendri, 给我鼓励并第一时间帮我申请了赔付， 不然我是无法负担的。
Li Chuan and Angeline
Trusted Financial Advisor
My friend recommended me Hendri’s financial advisory services, which is one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made.
To me, he is a great advisor because he listens to your needs and recommends the most appropriate and value for money insurance plans and coverage to meet the needs identified.
Despite purchasing polices through him, there were times that I had concerns whether my coverage is sufficient, but he would be honest to assure me that I do not need to purchase additional plans as my coverage was already adequate. I truly admire his Integrity and transparency, which gives me the assurance that he is a trusted financial planner that would not oversell you excessive products.
Additionally, when I was not well last year and had to seek medical assistance, he was extremely helpful to provide step by step guidance to obtain the best medical attention that I can possibly get in the shortest timeframe. Not only that, he would often follow up to ensure that I was recovering well and would check whether I need further assistance. Truly he is an advisor that goes above and beyond his scope of responsibilities to offer his help and I am thankful to have known him.
It is definitely highly recommended to consult Hendri trustworthy and reliable advice, especially for those who are serious about financial planning.
Nigel Lim, Compliance Analyst of MNC
Thank you Hendri Kamarudin, for seeing through my numerous claims processes. Most comforted to know that you are always a text away. You have been the most consistent person I know and I'm so glad you are taking care of my kids & my claims! Since 12 years (?? Or more?) ago, I must have been your highest claim client? :) my accidents & hospitalisation... my kids A, B, C's hospitalisations too many to count. I've never worried about using my credit card at the hospital counter cos I know the claims cheque will come in my mailbox very soon after. People have told me that it would take many months to receive any claims from insurance companies, but all my claims came within weeks. I suspect you submit them the MINUTE i text you. Or it might be because you travel down to where i am the very day i receive the final bill. Or it might be because you call me every alternate day to check with hospital/mail box/company for a missing document that's necessary to speed up the claims process. Every cheque is important to you as it is to me. I've not worried about your efficiency cos you have not missed any single cent of claim I'm entitled to, every single time. This is such a precious peace of mind anyone can have. Only wish for the best for you because you SO DESERVE THE VERY BEST!
Shilin, Teacher, MOE
My husband and I bought our first policies with Hendri when we graduated from University. 10 years on, he's still by our side guiding us. We have heard of many horror stories of agents who quit leaving them stranded; but Hendri is very reliable and is always in touch and contactable no matter how small the claim amount. When I was hospitalised in 2014 for a double lung and kidney infection, Hendri helped us with the claims to make sure that financially we could cope with the hospital expenses. We highly recommend Hendri as someone who knows his financial products very well and who will never hard-sell or force a product on you that you don't need. No matter what product we need, Hendri is the first person we turn to.

I fell very sick in Japan due to the cold weather. Visited a clinic in Tokyo and was diagnosed with acute bronchitis. The clinic bill raked up to over sgd $350 for that one time visit. 😱Was very glad that Hendri Kamarudin advise us to get the comprehensive travel plan because the claims were processed quickly and smoothly. Am really grateful for such an efficient and responsive agent. Be it weird timings or weekends, Hendri always responds to my SOS enquiries quickly. Really blessed to have such a wonderful insurance agent. Did I mention that I never had to worry about hospitalization issues because this guy made sure that I had sufficient coverage for all my needs. I always get to stay at the best hospitals e.g.: Raffles hospital one/two bedders and recuperate with the best doctors thanks to AIA's plans and my efficient insurance agent! Thanks Hendri once again, I have always been very thankful and blessed for your wonderful health/ financial services! Do contact him if you are looking for a trustworthy and reliable agent!

Hi Everybody ,
So happy that my daughter's hospitalisation claim is approved in such quick time! All thanks to Hendri Kamarudin fast response and efficiency in handling my claims with AIA. With this claim, I am also thankful that HENDRI has recommended me v good plans in the past that has not only fully covered my daughter's bill, but also paid out cash! Very appreciative of HENDRI's honest and down to earth service and strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a sincere n trusted agent!
Ryan Quah, Manager, Hoe Kee
Thank you Hendri!
I had a day surgery and was prepared not to be able to claim anything from my personal hospitalization plan. But hendri knows the claimable items at the back of his hand and was able to get me a whopping $550 from thin air! (I joke, it was a daily hospital income benefit, get well soon benefit, post hospitalization home rest benefit.) hendri also advises how I can fully make use of my rights from my plans. I’m grateful for the attention given. Thanks Hendri for taking my WhatsApps at all times.
When it comes to insurance, three things are needed - Precision in financial advice, clarity in an ambiguous claims environment, and technical finesse in setting up tailored policies to meet unique customer needs. Hendri has demonstrated great skill in each of these, he's a safe harbour and trusted adviser during the times that we're in.
Daniel Lee, Regional Marketing Lead, Oracle
Happy & Blessed Family

Hendri has been my agent for many years and each time whenever I have questions on policies or financial planning, he will always be prompt to reply me. I appreciate the time and effort he spent answering the questions even if it's late in the night or early morning.
When come to claims, he does everything and I just need to provide the receipt. He is definitely someone I will trust when coming to making major decisions.
A Long time Friend from TJC
Having known Hendri for 17 years, it was only recently that I turned to him for advice on some insurance matters. Many friends have bought plans from him and recommended his services but I already had agents looking after my family's insurance needs.
It was only when we looked at financial planning and we were sourcing for competitive quotes that the thought of engaging Hendri cropped up. I was expecting him to hard-sell the agencies that he was representing, but he surprised me with his fair analysis of the pros and cons of all the plans that I was looking at.
Despite not taking up the plan that he was offering at that point in time, we eventually engaged him when undertaking a review of our insurance coverage. He has offered sound advice - on claims (which he was not even our agent for) and on insurance policies when we were reviewing our coverage.
Hendri is foremost a trusted family friend and secondly a responsible financial adviser.

Praises from a brother
Thanks for everything bro, from being a close friend to my personal financial consultant, in providing me advice from financial matters to helping to make life decisions. 3 reasons why you rock as a financial consultant:
1) You listen actively – Often when we meet, you will always listen to what I have to say first, ask the right questions to diagnose the problems and needs and made reasonable recommendations. You are never pushy, always listen and challenge the different perspectives to breakdown the issue into simple problem statements. You give me time to ponder before I make a decision.
2) You are a system thinker – When you understand my needs, you often take a step back to understand my life’s situation, for e.g. the needs for our parents, the need for liquidity and mid-term planning, in addition to house financing. Thanks for planning and recommending the simple insurance policies to the complex financial instruments.
3) You are a doer, someone that is action focused – I have seen the way you react to our common friends’ needs whenever they need to make claims. While you focus in closing the transaction, you have also differentiated yourself by speedy processing of claims and fighting for your clients.
These are the 3 reasons that build trust! Trust inspires customers’ confidence in you. Trust is the common currency that trades truly in life and is in scarcity these days. This truly differentiates you. Keep it up!

I don't usually write a testimonial for anyone, but I must say that I appreciate and trust Hendri Kamarudin a lot when it comes to financial planning and insurance.
He is not just passionate about his work, but will go extra mile (at least for me).
One particular example was when I was struggling financially, and he happened to call me to meet up. At the back of my mind, I was hesitant to meet up. I know that all financial planner will want you to buy something from them whenever you meet up with them. But he proved me wrong that day when we met. Instead of persuading me to buy, he was telling me not buy anything until my financial situation more stable. I was impressed. I have not made many claims from him yet, but I believe he will process all my policies ASAP and to the best he knows how.
So Hendri Kamarudin, thank you very much and I trust all my financial plan in your hand...haha

Would like to thank hendri for his years of financial advice and service to me and my family. From one simple insurance plan for myself, his trustworthiness and excellent service has led me to recommend him to my friends and family wholeheartedly. He does not shy away from claims and instead ensures that the process is as pain-free and hassle-free as possible. Most importantly, he has given my family and I a peace of mind in terms of insurance coverage and financial advice, knowing we are in good hands, which I believe no amount of money can buy.

Many thanks to Hendri
The time I was hospitalised I incurred a heavy medical bill. Thanks to his farsighted and dedication I got some right insurance with him which lessened my burden a lot. He even went the extra mile of calling every now and then to check up on how is my recovery and guiding me to get the best assistance for my care be it medical claims or Physiotherapist help. I do suspect Hendri you are working 24/7 cause when I submit my claims to u. They were processed quickly not like how some people said after months also no news. Thanks for the dedication and the timely assistance. Truly you walked in when the rest of the world seems to walk out. Please keep it up. You really make a difference in our lives. Thank you

Hendri is a very trustworthy person. I know him through one of my friends, I am very touched that he always spends a lot of time to plan everything that suits me, he never ever try to hard sell anything to me and my husband before. I am truly grateful to him that he helped to give my colleague and my brother's girlfriend free advice without pressuring them to buy any policies from him. We are really blessed to have him as our adviser. 😇

Been very blessed to have Hendri as our family financial consultant for the past years. From personal coverage to child insurance plan, Hendri has always been able to present us with the most comprehensive plans that meet our lifestyle and budget.
Hefty medical bills is always my top concern. 5 years ago, Hendri managed to help me with a surgery payout efficiently. The most recent case was my son's hospitalization bills which Hendri negotiated with the insurance provider for almost 3 months and was approved finally.
We are very appreciative of his dedication and sincerity. He will always take into considerations our current needs and advise accordingly.
Highly recommended for his professional financial services!!

Thank you Hendri Kamarudin for your help in submitting our recent claim! You are really efficient! From picking up the claim documents from us to submitting our claim, you got this done within a few hours only! You even dropped us a message to inform us after you have submitted our claim. Despite the claim amount is small, you shows no sign of delaying in our claim submission. This shows how professional and responsible you are. With our past 2 experiences and your efficiency, we managed to receive our claims within a month. We are so blessed to have such a trustworthy and reliable insurance agent like you! — ￼feeling blessed.

When it comes to insurance, choice of consultant is like choosing a doctor - they all have the same title but you know it when you have a good doctor / consultant. I'm glad I left my financial planning up to Hendri since day 1 as since then i have made so many claims and yet never once worried about anything. He is both responsive and responsible, and more important he's capable. Such a trustworthy consultant is exactly what everyone needs.
