Asia's Financial/Bank Adviser of the Year - Ms Nguyen Thi Linh

| 19 Sep 2017

For her untiring efforts at improvement for both herself and her clients, her admirable work ethic, and her charitable spirit, Ms Nguyen Thi Linh was crowned the Financial/Bank Adviser of the Year at the 2nd Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards.

Given the very short time that Ms Nguyen has joined the life insurance industry, the young staff from Manulife Vietnam (MLV) has proven her potential as well as strong will to become an outstanding financial adviser.

With diverse experience in different fields, strong commitment to non-stop self-improvement, high professionalism in dealing with customers and strong devotion to both her own career success and business ethics, Ms Nguyen has become one of the best financial advisers in MLV’s bancassurance team. She is currently working at Techcombank (TCB) – Hanoi branch, which is one of the leading banks in Vietnam.

Breaking records from the very first month

She became the Top IOIS (MLV bancassurance sales staff) after only one month of joining MLV and the life insurance industry. In that first month, her contribution played an important role in setting a new record of the Hanoi branch office, with a total sales revenue four times higher than the average of other months.

In 2015, Ms Nguyen also achieved the Platinum title for Top IOIS with her outstanding performance. What makes this achievement even more impressive is that she received this prestigious title after only six months of joining the team.

She also holds another record at the Hanoi branch office of TCB – she is the one who closed the largest policy deal valued at VND500 million (US$22,000), which once again proves her huge potential and sharp skills as a financial adviser.

Continuous learning

Her tireless efforts to improve through self-learning saw Ms Nguyen, during her early days in life insurance, conducting self-study sessions on MLV insurance products, as well as brushing up on sales skills on the internet until midnight every night. This strong will has helped her to quickly catch up with and get ahead of other colleagues in the sales field.

A keen learner with numerous study courses and certificate of recognitions, Ms Nguyen has joined a number of training courses, both inside and outside MLV, for outstanding performers. She is an active member of BNI Businessman Club – a popular business networking club in Hanoi.

The 2nd Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards was organised by Asia Insurance Review with LIMRA as co-organiser, AIA as strategic partner, and Sun Life Financial as sponsor. The truly regional Awards saw winners from seven markets across Asia – China, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Thailand and Singapore.
