Rookie Insurance Agency Leader of the Year- Jason Chu

| 02 Dec 2019

At the age of 31, Jason is already a regional director. This places him amongst the top 3% of agency leaders in his company.

He has built a team of 80 advisers and leaders in the short span of five years, making him one of the young agency leaders with the fastest growing business.

Impressively, the quality of business and advisers have grown correspondingly with the exponential growth in team size.

Jason and his team have received a string of awards, both internally and externally. Other than qualifying for some of the most prestigious and highest-ranked awards in his company in 2018, his team had 29 Million Dollar Round Table qualifiers, representing 36% of his team. Out of these 29 MDRT members, five achieved global recognition in less than a year. And, leading by example, Jason is one of two Court of the Table qualifiers in the team.

To build a productive team of high quality, he believes in being a role model to his team through being an inspiring leader, an active recruiter and a productive adviser.

A testament to the success of the sales and management system he has implemented, he successfully groomed two district directors in his team last year. One of his managers currently leads a team of over 10 advisers.

As a Gen Y leader, he has built a young and energetic team committed to professionalism. Over 90% of his team are Gen Y with an average age of 26, and almost 80% are university graduates from different academic faculties, bringing with them different perspectives from their studies in customising a quality financial plan for their clients.

As someone who chose to join the insurance industry after graduating from the City University of Hong Kong, he is a walking example to undergraduates and graduates. Hence, he has an excellent track record in college recruitment, which helps to ensure the industry attracts the right young talent.
