As there are over 20 judges in the upcoming Awards, we’ll be compiling some key points of what each judge is looking out for in a successful nominee. Judges’ answers vary from qualities they look out for in an individual that goes beyond production figures, to tips on how to navigate across challenges and obstacles.

The 4th Asia Trusted Life Agents and Advisers Awards is now open for submissions. The Awards with an independently-audited judging process is organised by Asia Insurance Review and Asia Advisers Network, with co-organiser LIMRA and Strategic Partner AIA.
