AIA Group Limited (“AIA”; or the “Company”; stock code: 1299) the largest independent publicly listed pan-Asian life insurance group, announced today the historic achievement of becoming the only multinational company in the world to have achieved the largest number of Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) members for six consecutive years.
A record total of 12,796 AIA agents and agency leaders were registered as MDRT members as of 1 July 2020.
MDRT is a global and independent association that is internationally recognised as the standard of excellence in life insurance and financial services. Its members are required to generate a certain level of premium, commission, and income, and demonstrate professional knowledge, strict ethical conduct and outstanding client service.
Lee Yuan Siong, Group Chief Executive and President of AIA Group, said, “I am extremely proud of our agents and the outstanding work they do every day as trusted partners to our customers. AIA’s Number One position in the world for MDRT qualifiers reflects the enormous quality and depth of our agency force, representing a key competitive advantage for our Company. We shall continue to ensure that our agents are fully equipped to help our millions of customers live Healthier, Longer, Better, Lives.”
Bill Lisle, Regional Chief Executive and Group Chief Distribution Officer of AIA Group, said, “I am truly delighted that AIA’s superb agents have achieved this amazing result, particularly in 2020 as the world grapples with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Being Number One in the world in MDRT for the sixth consecutive year reflects AIA’s longstanding investment in our agency force and we remain deeply committed to continuing to provide our agents with the best technology, training and career development opportunities in the industry.”
AIA Sri Lanka’s Deputy CEO and Chief Agency Officer Upul Wijesinghe noted, “as part of AIA Group, AIA Sri Lanka too upholds the highest standards for Wealth Planners. Proud to note that in Sri Lanka too, AIA had the highest number of MDRT qualifiers for 5 consecutive years which is testament to the high calibre of our team.”
