AIA Hong Kong has been honoured for the second year in a row with the “Corporate Financial Education Leadership - Gold Award” at the “Financial Education Leadership Awards” organised by the Institute of Financial Planners of Hong Kong (“IFPHK”). The Company was also named “Accredited Professional Financial Planning Firm” for the fifth consecutive year. These recognitions laud AIA's efforts in enhancing the financial literacy of the public and commend its establishment of a team of professional financial planners with CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERCM (“CFPCM”) and ASSOCIATE FINANCIAL PLANNERTM (“AFPTM”) qualifications to provide customers with tailored and appropriate financial planning solutions.
Mr. Peter Crewe, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Hong Kong & Macau, said, “AIA Hong Kong is committed to promoting financial education in various ways. We aim to help people master financial planning and understand their own financial and protection needs. With more knowledge about finance and wealth management, people can make wiser decisions on insurance, financial and MPF products to secure the life they desire. In addition to public education initiatives, we also actively train our financial planners to deliver professional and dedicated services that support our customers in realising their goals at different life stages. This ensures we can fulfil our promise to help our customers live healthier, longer, better lives.”
IFPHK was established in 2000 with the aim of defining and enhancing the professional standards of the financial planning industry in Hong Kong. Last year, the Institute organised the inaugural “Financial Education Leadership Awards” to pay tribute to corporations and individuals that have made significant efforts in strengthening the financial literacy of Hong Kong people. The assessment criteria of the “Corporate Financial Education Leadership” Award are based on how enterprises enrich the public's financial literacy through different channels such as media, events and research programmes. The judging panel is comprised of the IFPHK's board members and experienced CFPCM professionals.
