NAMLIFA said to Asia Advisers Network, “As Bank Negara Malaysia intends to professionalise the life insurance industry further, NAMLIFA is playing an active role in promoting professionalism among Malaysian Life Insurance & Family Takaful agents.”

The FLPC Board of NAMLIFA has set an objective to develop around 500 FCLP graduates every year, helping them to grow professionally and productively. The curriculum is approved by the Finance Accreditation Agency.

“Our ultimate goal is to have 20,000 graduates by the year 2030. They, in turn, should be able to capture 50% to 60% of the market share of the insured population. Education provides a clear direction of understanding the human life value, taking into consideration various factors including inflation and expenses ratio in determining adequate solutions to one's financial requirement,” said NAMLIFA.
