Asia Asia Insurance Industry Awards

The closing of nominations for the 2nd Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards 2017 in April saw more than 350 entries from 25 companies in over 10 markets including Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The category of Agent of the Year led with the highest number of nominations, followed closely by Agency Leader of the Year. 
   The entries will now be closely scrutinised and judged by a panel of over 20 judges from the industry, chaired by Mr Mark Saunders, Group Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer of AIA Group. 
   “The number of entries show that agents take their roles seriously and see these Awards, the only regional Awards across companies and markets that looks at agents’ performance beyond just numbers, as a worthy prize and honour,” said Mr Sivam Subramaniam, Editor-in-Chief, Asia Insurance Review, which organises the Awards with LIMRA as the co-hosts, AIA as strategic partner and Sun Life Financial as sponsor.
   The first round of Judging will be done by judges scoring the entries to select the top three finalists for each of the 14 categories. The finalists for the Agents categories will then be invited to submit a video clip demonstrating why they should win, which will be viewed during the second round of Judging to take place in late May. 
   The Gala Awards Presentation Dinner will be held on 12 July in Singapore in conjunction with the inaugural International Training Summit for Life Agents and Financial Advisers organised by AIR, an event to arm agents and advisers with the right skills and tools to do their job well and excel in their business.
   The Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards salutes the role of the agency force, the insurers and service providers supporting them, and their immense contributions to industry and society even in this digital age and social media.
   Last year, the star-studded evening of the 1st Awards drew some 400 guests at the Gala Awards Presentation Dinner to witness the glory of nine high-flying agents and organisation winners from six Asian markets, and the video clip was viewed by several thousand people across the world. Launched in conjunction with the 2016 Awards, Agents WIN, a weekly e-newsletter from AIR continues to carry life insurance news and tips for agents, including commentaries from past Awards participants. A
