A new dawn to showcase excellence

2023 is looking to be a recovery year for everyone and with these hopes of a new dawn, everyone from all industries is looking towards a restart after the challenging two years past. We are therefore very excited to be able to bring the 2023 Asia Trusted Life Agents and Advisers’ Awards live in Singapore this year.

Despite the challenges of the last couple of years, agents and advisers have persevered with their passion and commitment to clients, and we saw such genuine efforts towards this end. We at Asia Advisers Network (AAN) are therefore even more excited and inspired to launch these year’s awards to see how else agents can break barriers, now that the world has more or less returned to normal. We take our hats off to them for aiming for the stars and keeping the bar of excellence so high.

AAN and Asia Insurance Review, together with co-organiser LIMRA and strategic partner AIA, are indeed proud and humbled to be able to continue this journey in this, the 8th Asia Trusted Life Agents and Advisers Awards. 

Agents and advisers remain such an integral and indispensable part of the industry. At AAN, we understand that the role of life agents and advisers is not just a job, but a calling. It requires a deep commitment to making a positive impact in people’s lives by helping them plan for their financial future. We are proud to be associated with a team of professionals who embody this ethos every day.

These awards help to endorse and reward excellence for deserving candidates, and in its own humble way help to raise standards for the industry as a whole. Aside from the agents, companies behind them also should be saluted. The Asia Trusted Life Agents and Advisers Awards are a testament to the exceptional work that agents do and the trust that clients have placed on them. Their achievements are such a source of inspiration for the entire industry and a shining example of the value that a dedicated and knowledgeable life agent or adviser can bring to people’s lives.

We would like to thank our esteemed panel of 16 judges, as well as the independent auditor for their commitment to this cause, not to mention the supporting associations as well. I am most grateful to Mark Tucker, our patron for so many years for his continuous support and belief in this cause.

So nominate and show the industry what you have done and how you can motivate your peers as well. This is just the beginning. The world is changing at a rapid pace, and we must continue to evolve and adapt to meet the evolving needs of clients. Let us embrace this challenge and continue to strive for excellence in all that we do.

We look forward to welcoming the entries this year. All the best, may your careers continue to flourish and may 2023 be a great year for all of you.

Celebrating the impact and achievements of agents and advisers

Global economic and geopolitical uncertainty have been major themes of the past 12 months and are likely to remain so. Looking back, we launched the 2022 awards amid ongoing concerns relating to the COVID pandemic and shortly before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The outbreak of war in Europe was first an urgent humanitarian crisis and second a seismic event for the global economy, given the impact it has had on supply chains, commodity prices and inflation. This has only added to the COVID-related challenges that remain with us.

However, despite the uncertainties, and in particular as a result of China’s reopening, it is possible to be more optimistic about the global economy in 2023. Our industry continues to play a vital role in the global economic recovery as an important source of long-term investment capital, risk management and pioneering products and technologies.

In addition, as consumers have grappled with the real-life implications of these macroeconomic issues, agents and advisers have once again been there to help them ensure they have the right protection for their families and themselves.

I am delighted that it will be possible to recognise the many important achievements of our industry in person in Singapore later this year. Agents and advisers have always been the engine of our industry. They are trusted sources of help and advice to our customers. They provide peace of mind in trying times and employ cutting-edge digital products and services to provide the right coverage to meet customers’ needs. They continue to strengthen communities, help to close the protection gap and enable our industry to grow.

I would like to offer my sincere thanks to Asia Insurance Review and Asia Advisers Network for helping us to recognise the many important achievements of our colleagues.
