Through a comprehensive series of structured training courses, AIA Premier Academy mobilises and encourages financial planners to attain MDRT qualification.
At the Group level, AIA is 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.
