True leaders stand out in times of crisis - David Levenson

| 16 Feb 2021

The 6th Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards 2021 is organised by Asia Advisers Network and Asia Insurance Review, with co-organiser LIMRA, strategic partner AIA, and sponsors Allianz and Union Assurance.

Here’s the co-organiser message from David Levenson, President & CEO, LIMRA, LOMA and LL Global, on the launch of the Awards.

“LIMRA is honoured to co-organise the 6th Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards 2021, which recognises accomplished agents and advisers, and their commitment to serving their customers.

As a research-led organisation, LIMRA’s purpose is to advance the financial services industry by empowering our members with knowledge, insights, connections, and solutions. This past year was no exception. When the pandemic hit, we moved quickly to provide the industry with the tools and information they needed to address these new industry challenges and allow companies and agents alike to continue protecting the financial security of the clients they serve.

While a rapidly changing industry was already top of mind for all of us as we started 2020, the unprecedented year pushed our industry to change faster than ever. Companies had to move quickly to adapt to new remote working environments, stop in-person meetings due to lockdowns, and learn new technologies that were not part of our previous practice. This created immediate challenges for agents and advisers to connect with their customers.

Despite these challenges, we saw agents and advisers successfully adapting to the new and changing environment, continuing to find new and innovative ways to engage with their customers and help alleviate their financial fears during this extraordinary time.

It is in times of crisis when true leaders stand out from the rest and are able to show strength, determination, and inspire others to do better and to do more. It is important to recognise those individuals who go above and beyond every day to help customers achieve financial security.

I encourage you to nominate an agent or adviser who represents the best in the industry — to celebrate the achievements of all that has been positive in a world that has experienced so much recent chaos.”
