OMNI Capital (Far East) Ltd. : - In 1971, this first OMNI company was incorporated in Hong Kong. It was set up to provide various financial services (including insurance brokerage) to the Expatriate community worldwide with focus on those living and working in Asia. Services included a full line of insurance products but mainly focused on personal insurance plans such as worldwide medical, life, accident and disability income. Incorporated and managed by Expats, OMNI Capital marketed its services to Expats involved in the Vietnam War, the construction industry and also the ASEAN oilfields. Business spread through customer referrals to other Expats around the globe. Today the company handles the insurance needs for thousands of families on practically every continent.Most of the Expatriate accounts handled by OMNI are tailored worldwide individual, family and group medical insurance plans underwritten primarily by "Pacific International" or "GlobalHealth". Besides health insurance the company places life, accident, kidnap and ransom, medical emergency assistance plans, disability income and other hard-to-place insurance policies. Currently the company is expanding the number of suppliers of Expatriate personal insurance programs, especially worldwide medical insurance plans. "BUPA", "ProMedico" and "Goodhealth" have recently been added. Though OMNI Capital is incorporated in Hong Kong, OMNI Insurance Brokers (Philippines) provides much of the liaison services required from its Manila office and either office may be contacted on any further inquiry.
OMNI Expatriate Benefits Association. Ltd. (Hong Kong) - OEBA was incorporated in 1990 as a membership association of expatriates living around the world. The purpose of the association is to provide its members with access to various goods and services at a discount or with special privileges awarded. Unlike OMNI Capital, which handles tailored medical plans and other special risks, OEBA focuses on buyers of only standard designs of off-the-shelf medical plans. These standard worldwide medical insurance policies are today a major source of business for OEBA. Members who purchase their plans through the Association enjoy discounts of 5-10%. This means that OEBA is one of the most competitive sources of worldwide medical insurance in the international marketplace. Currently discount agreements exist with Pacific International and GlobalHealth. Besides medical insurance OEBA members are able to obtain dental, life, accident, travel and other personal lines, some with discounts and some without.
