In early trade, the Peppermint share price surged by around 13% to 2.6 cents only to then retreat. At the time of writing, Peppermint shares are trading at 2.3 cents, flat for the day so far, amidst a wider market selloff. 

Let’s take a look at what the mobile banking app developer announced.

Peppermint offers new micro-insurance product

The Peppermint share price has been up and down today after the technology company announced it has entered into an agreement with Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Solutions (Cebuana) in the Phillippines. Peppermint is now offering Filipino consumers access to life and accident insurance products.

Under the agreement, Cebuana will provide the insurance products and services to Peppermint. Peppermint will provide marketing and sales services as well as collect premiums and be responsible for compliance.

Using Peppermint’s bizmoto app technology, customers will have access to three different micro-insurance products to purchase on a monthly or annual basis.

Every policy covers emergency services associated with coronavirus.
