A total of 54 finalists from 12 markets have been named for the 4th Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards 2019. The Awards attracted over 400 entries this year.

A neutral platform recognising the best in life insurance agency and advisory across the region, the awards are highly sought-after marks of excellence.

The Awards is organised by Asia Insurance Review and Asia Advisers Network with LIMRA as co-organiser, and AIA as strategic partner.

The panel of judges will next meet on 22 May 2019 in Singapore to deliberate and select winners for the 13 categories, including Executive Champion of the Year, by secret ballot. The whole judging process is audited by EY.

The winners will be revealed only at the gala dinner in Bangkok on 18 July 2019 to be held in conjunction with the Agency Innovation Conference.
