Life Insurance

"Having been in the life industry for more than 2 decades, I remain passionate about spearheading and playing an active role in driving social and economic development in Singapore. Singaporeans are still very much underinsured and as their needs evolve, it is crucial for the financial services industry to continuously educate the community on the importance of being adequately protected. Putting consumers' needs first and foremost necessitates the industry's commitment to develop innovative products and services, driven by consumer insights to meet these needs."
