AIA Hong Kong and Macau announced the Company has once again achieved the largest number of financial planners attaining Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) membership* worldwide, also topping the ranking in Hong Kong and Macau. As many as 5,135 AIA Hong Kong financial planners achieved this qualification, and this is the Company’s 19th year ranking No.1 in Hong Kong. Moreover, AIA Macau has once again accomplished No.1 ranking in number of MDRT members in Macau with 928 financial planners.
Mr. Alger Fung, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Hong Kong & Macau, said, “Despite a challenging year, our financial planners continued to serve customers with unrivalled professionalism and perseverance. Our unyielding effort and excellent service have once again taken us to the top of the global, Hong Kong and Macau rankings in MDRT membership, which is widely regarded as the most esteemed international honour in the industry, validating the well-earned recognition by customers and the industry around the world. Our team will continue to understand and cater for customer needs, and develop flexible and agile strategies to help them live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives.”
Only a small number of insurance and financial services professionals are qualified for MDRT membership among 72 countries and regions around the globe. In addition to the production requirement, members must also demonstrate exceptional relevant professional knowledge and strict ethical conduct to provide customers with superior service. AIA Hong Kong established the industry-first AIA Premier Academy in 2011 with the objective of cultivating elites for the insurance industry. 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 firm in history to have achieved the largest number of MDRT members for seven consecutive years. A record total of 16,017 AIA agents and agency leaders were registered as MDRT members as of 1 July 2021, representing an increase of 25 per cent from 2020.
