We received an overwhelming response to our very 1st APFinSA Awards! APFinSA, together with host member association THAIFA (Thai Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors), honours 1,600 winners for APFinSA Awards from across Asia Pacific, and celebrates their success in an awards ceremony being held in Bangkok, Thailand, on 25 August 2020. We wish all APFinSA Awardees who are the esteemed top producers in Asia Pacific great success with great achievements in their future ahead!
Mr. Banyong Witayaweerasak, the Chairman of the Asia Pacific Financial Advisors Association (APFinSA) said, “regarding the future of life insurance business in Asia, we have reason to believe that for the next 10 years, the world economy will be driven by the middle class in China, India and ASEAN. They are the largest market segment with enormous buying power. It is time for Asia to rise and to recognise our own Asian qualifiers and outstanding performers. The APFinSA Awards have been in the plans for the past decade. Discussion and decisions were delayed as we struggled to measure competencies among the Asia Pacific countries, due to different work environment, due to different costs of living and various challenges. In 2019, APFinSA together with its 9 member countries, were finally ready and passed the resolution to launch the APFinSA Awards. This was announced during the APLIC Congress in Hong Kong in 2019, and the 1st APFinSA Awards was to be hosted by host country, THAIFA from Thailand in 2020.”
