For her remarkable achievements as a first-year manager, grooming a team of high quality professionals with an emphasis on quality advice as demonstrated by a group persistency rate of almost 100% and for leading by example, Ms Agnes Ng from Prudential Assurance Company Singapore was crowned Rookie Insurance Agency Leader of the Year at the 3rd Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards.
With just a year of managerial experience under her belt and seven agents in her team, Ms Ng has received several accolades recognising her success and accomplishments.
She was the first-runner up associate financial services manager in Prudential Assurance Company Singapore in 2017. Her team also achieved the Million Dollar Agency Award for exceeding $1m in production.
Prior to becoming an agency leader, she had over 13 years of experience as an adviser with Prudential where she achieved multiple awards and promotions. She was promoted to master financial consultant, the highest rank as an adviser in the company, and she was also conferred the titles of wealth manager and corporate benefits manager, reflecting her achievements as a personal producer with extraordinary results across multiple areas.
But her dream of magnifying her efforts through grooming a team of professionals, who in turn can reach out to help more people by providing the right financial planning saw her make the switch from a successful adviser to agency leader.

Ms Ng holds a clear vision to recruit a team of high quality professionals and feels immense pride in having groomed and developed winners who have gone on to achieve their own awards.
Every member in her team qualified for Quality Club (Prudential Singapore’s recognition for the top 30%), including those who joined less than 12 months previously. Three of the seven in her team made it to the top 14% in Prudential with one of them achieving MDRT, the Premier Silver Award (top 0.9% in Prudential Singapore) and the Top 10 Rookie Award which recognises the accomplishment of new agents within their first two years of service in the company.
But more important than awards, Ms Ng advocates quality financial advice to clients to ensure gaps are identified and actions taken. She walks the talk with a 100% policy persistency rate in 2017. Through leading by example, her group persistency rate is also an impressive high of 99%.
Her commitment to continuous learning and upgrading can also be seen through the professional certifications she acquired in 2017, such as Certified Will Planner, Trust Planning for Insurance Practitioners, Business Succession Planning and the completion of Agency Leader Mantra Course.
