Hong Kong, August 4, 2020 – Sun Life Hong Kong Limited (“the Company” or “Sun Life Hong Kong”) has recently garnered three awards from the 5th Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards 2020, including the coveted prize of Insurance Company of the Year, recognizing the Company’s strength and accomplishment in the industry. Lachman B. Balani, an 81-year-old Financial Planning Manager from Sun Life Hong Kong, was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award, while Chief Agency Officer, Jason Chou, received the Young Executive of the Year Award.
Fabien Jeudy, Chief Executive Officer of Sun Life Hong Kong Limited, said, “We have a long and continuing presence in Hong Kong lasting 128 years and beyond, offering quality financial products to the people of Hong Kong and helping our clients to realize their life goals. We put our clients at the centre of everything we do, from product design, service channels to operations, so that clients always enjoy a superior experience from us. 2020 is undoubtedly an extraordinary year. In face of the enormous challenge ahead, we will remain steadfast and firm in our mission and provide maximum support to our clients, giving them the solid backing on which they can depend for a bright future.”
The 5th Asia Trusted Life Agents & Advisers Awards 2020 is organized by Asia Advisers Network and Asia Insurance Review to recognize and salute the best in the industry.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, early this year the Company launched a series of special measures in support of its clients, including waiver of waiting period and simplified application process for claims. Starting from March 2020, clients of individual insurance can, by using the My Sun Life HK app, choose to receive regular payouts of their policies through the Faster Payment System, without waiting for cheque delivery or going out, thus saving their time and sparing them from unnecessary concerns.
