Source: Asia Insurance Review | Feb 2015
Insurance still does not rank very highly on most people’s list of dream industries. But why, despite the importance of insurance to lives and business and the travails in the banking sector, is the industry still often seen as the “poorer cousin” in the financial services?

In our Cover Story, six CEOs come out to say that being in the spotlight is not as important as value creation. However, they do agree that there is a need for CEOs to stand tall so the industry can be marketed better, fulfil its noble aim better, and more importantly be able to attract the talent needed.
