FWD Takaful and UnBound Malaysia design Augmented Reality game to enhance students’ Takaful awareness

Partnership with UnBound Malaysia provides an immersive approach to demystify Takaful for university students

Kuala Lumpur, 25 November 2020 – FWD Takaful Berhad (“FWD Takaful”) has partnered with UnBound Malaysia, to develop an Augmented Reality (“AR”) game as a new approach to promote, educate, and improve the awareness of Takaful protection. The game, aptly titled “UnBound, powered by FWD Takaful” will be introduced to students of the participating public and private universities as part of their online distance learning initiatives.

Salim Majid Zain, FWD Takaful’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We’re very excited to be partnering with UnBound Malaysia to leverage technology in educating Malaysians on the importance of Takaful protection. We want to empower the students with Takaful values while indulging an immersive and interactive gaming experience and change the way people feel about Takaful.”. 

Ryan Kang, UnBound Malaysia’s Director said, “The UnBound, powered by FWD Takaful AR Game allows the students to become a hero in the Takaful virtual world. We’re pleased to partner with FWD Takaful and to have the opportunity to be one of the few gaming platforms that incorporate AR for learning financial literacy.”

Motivated by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the game’s mission is to eliminate viruses from the virtual world, with time-based quizzes on Takaful, financial literacy and related course subjects. Students from participating universities will be able to experience the game from December 2020.
