I got a chance to meet Philam Life CEO Aibee Cantos at the Philam Strong event at Green Sun Hotel. Its an event launch about Philam Life's Transformational Recruitment Program.
We we're reminded that life insurance is very important now a days and it seems that few Filipino are aware about its importance and benefits. I totally agree with it because in the past, I usually dodge any invitations of a friend who is an insurance agent. Its hard to understand back then its purpose to my life and I just want my money being spent to material things that I really need. But my views for insurance changes when I started my own family, I finally learned that it is important because the money that is saved well and managed by a legit insurance company, can be used in the future if ever we die, got sick or needed educational funding for our kids.
When I met Philam Life CEO Aibee Cantos, he asked for our help to spread awareness about insurance especially to young people. From what I've learned, young people have the most advantage, because there are lots of insurance coverage than those people who are old. And for young people, they can retire at an early age with a bigger insurance coverage and claims.
One of the problems encountered is that many are aware about life insurance but there's zero actions to apply and pay one insurance plan, I'm a bit guilty there, he is right and I can tell that Im one of those people who lack action in getting an insurance. I thank my wife for patiently studying all about insurance and she explains to me inch by inch, because my wife is more convincing than the insurance agents, so I told her get one and let me sign a paper and start pay it monthly or quarterly.
Financial Adviser - new career options
There's also an upcoming change for the career landscape, back then, the most sought after jobs is to work on a computer, then to work at a BPO, and then the CEO see that the next big thing for career options is to apply as a financial adviser, normally I know that the term financial adviser is still the same with insurance agent, but hearing the word adviser is much more passionate than the word "agent".
I know a lot of people who are now shifting to being a financial adviser, If you are passionate about it then you can get your dreams come true, as they say. Its not really easy and not really hard but I see successful financial advisers form their own company with the same career plus backed by Philam Life, that's one awesome job that Im sure the new generation can easily grab it.
The financial advisers of today is a much more younger than the insurance agents of yesterday, the financial advisers of Philam Life are equipped with tech and gadgets provided by their company and they use this every day to educate people about insurance of financial literacy. Do you think that the new generation got more charm? I bet you, I signed up after the sweet talks.
