Financial Adviser of the Year 2018:Nguyen Thi Thanh Lich

| 21 May 2018

For achieving outstanding performance to be named top adviser of Manulife Vietnam as measured by APE for two consecutive years, and her untiring efforts in helping to inspire others, Ms Nguyen Thi Thanh Lich was named Financial Adviser of the Year at the 3rd Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards.

Four years into her budding career as a life insurance adviser with Manulife Vietnam (MLV) and Ms Nguyen is already an incredible success, considered as one of MLV bancassurance adviser team’s superstars.

She has emerged as MLV’s top adviser with the highest APE for the past two consecutive years. In 2017, she held the company record for three consecutive quarters as its top APE producer and also registered the highest number of cases over VND100m($4,395). Her production alone accounts for close to 60% of her bank branch’s performance.

Ms Nguyen is also well loved by both colleagues and bank staff. Not only is she a role model for her peers at MLV, she is also a helpful coach for the bank staff. As a top producer, she shares tirelessly and selflessly about her experience to inspire other MLV advisers and also accepts invitations from various Techcombank branch directors to speak to bank staff about the concepts of life insurance and how to promote it effectively.

Her confidence, sincerity and a great passion for life insurance are what set her apart. She is well-versed in the product portfolio and features of other insurers in the market, which enables her to compare the various options available to customers to assist their decision making.

Her aim is to provide customers with a full picture of the choices they have and help them to make the best possible choice to be financially protected, even when they do not choose MLV.

Ms Nguyen’s decision to embark on a career as a life insurance adviser came about when she saw how her sister struggled to make ends meet as the sole breadwinner of the family with two kids when her brother-in-law got into an accident years ago without any insurance coverage. Thus, her passion for the industry was ignited as she strives to serve customers with all her heart to assist them in getting financially protected.

With over 10% y-o-y growth in number of policies and 64% y-o-y growth in APE production in 2017, the future is bright for this young star.
