In today’s dynamic, fast-paced and technologically-advanced environment, the only way to succeed is to embrace change and to constantly refine our skill-sets. While this notion is true for every profession, it is particularly evident among financial advisors.
Becoming a financial advisor is mainly self-driven where one’s growth, income potential and achievements are virtually unlimited depending on one’s own diligence and performance. More than the potential success from this career, there lies a mission of protecting lives and dreams amidst life’s uncertainties. Because of this, more and more highly productive individuals from various fields are choosing to make a switch in their careers and take this winning and noble career path.
Learning the ropes of the life insurance sector and the way to conduct financial planning is remarkably easier now for those who want to become financial advisors with the entry of Genesis by Philam Life. Inspired by its mother company, AIA Group, Ltd., Genesis by Philam Life is the first of its kind, espousing a culture of high standard geared towards reinventing the Financial Advisor Practice across the Philippine insurance industry.
Built in a state-of-the art facility in the heart of Makati’s business district, Genesis by Philam Life has three main components: The Farm, The Hive and The Nest. Each of these sections are designed to empower new Financial Advisors to become highly productive, collaborative, dynamic, tech-savvy, and to have a good understanding of their clients’ needs. This aims to fast-track their progress to become premier agency leaders and elite members of the global Million Dollar Round Table club.
The Farm is where Financial Advisors are equipped with a structured development program that provides them not only with relevant business knowledge and financial planning skills through Real Life training, but instils in them the mission of empowering Filipinos to reach their financial goals.
The Hive is a modern work space for individual and group collaborations, whether online or offline, with the latest software, technological tools and sales support throughout every stage of performing their function and achieving productivity.
The Nest is an engaging environment where Financial Advisors can invite clients over for individual financial needs analysis and for pocket forums. The Nest provides an open and friendly environment that exudes both comfort and professionalism, keeping away distractions and allowing productive dialogue about their financial goals to prosper.
As Genesis by Philam Life gives financial advisors a great environment to learn, grow and succeed, Philam Life hopes to build the Agency of the Future, composed of professional Financial Advisors equipped with exceptional business knowledge, strict work ethics and providing excellent client service. Above all, these Financial Advocates are advocates with the mission of empowering Filipinos to achieve financial security and prosperity.
