HSBC Holdings group chairman Mark Tucker is the patron of the Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards.
As founding patron of the Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards, I am delighted to see the awards continue to go from strength to strength.
The long-term success of the life insurance business depends on marrying the best customer service with the best new technologies. These awards demonstrate how agents and advisers are already doing so to great effect, and show why they are so critical to the future of the industry.
For many customers, agents and advisers are the human face of life insurance, with the ability to build trusted relationships with customers, understand their needs and recommend the right products and services to meet them.
As life insurance becomes increasingly linked to wellbeing, they play a significant role in helping people to live healthier lives.
In addition, by embracing digital technologies, advisers and agents can increase coverage, offer new products and services and help to close the protection gap.
The accelerating pace of change creates an opportunity to innovate, invest and partner with others, to make insurance more accessible and engage with a wider range of consumers, especially younger people. Agents and advisers have an important role to play in making the most of that opportunity.
I would like to thank Asia Insurance Review and Asia Advisers Network for helping us to celebrate the best of agency and advisory, and the enormously valuable contribution that they make to the industry and to the communities in which we work and live. A
The 5th Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards is organised by Asia Insurance Review and Asia Advisers Network with LIMRA as co-organiser, AIA as strategic partner, and strong industry support from leading insurance associations and organisations.
