Attended Sun Life Event this month at Radisson Blu Cebu for their Rise PH Press Conference. This is a game changer for everyone who is into investing and saving for their future.
Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc., the top-ranked and longest-standing life insurance company in the Philippines, aims to serve five million clients by year 2020 under its new five-year growth plan dubbed “Rise PH”.
“Rise PH” champions financial inclusion in the Philippines, where only a small percentage of the whole population utilizes financial products such as insurance and investments. “Despite the bright prospects that the country’s economy has, prosperity still hasn’t trickled down to the more disadvantaged sectors of society. We have to address this,” Sun Life President and CEO Riza Mantaring said. “Sun Life would like to see more Filipinos looking forward to a brighter future and the whole country rising to greater heights. We would like to start by targeting five million clients in five years.
While it may seem like an ambitious goal, Mantaring believes that it’s best to set the targets high. “At Sun Life, we always dare to dream big – more so if the stakes are high. This is the country’s future we’re talking about, after all,” she explained. “Setting high targets will push us to do more, and will allow us to make a greater contribution to our country’s future.”
In order to reach the company’s goals, several initiatives will be launched under “Rise PH”. These initiatives will have Sun Life reaching out to a broader market, further boosting its financial literacy advocacy, and expanding its reach nationwide.
Financial Independence Month
Reina Pama, President of Sun Life Asset Management and Mylene Lopa, Chief Marketing Officer of Sun Life Financial during press conference shared their expert advises about Sun Life Plans.
The initial set of initiatives will be launched this June, which Sun Life has declared as “Financial Independence Month.” This includes the cooperation with 8990 Holdings, Inc., one of the top mass housing developers in the country, for efforts to promote financial literacy.
Another initiative is Money for Life, a comprehensive, customizable financial planning program that will ensure that a client will have sufficient funds for every stage of his life.
To help inspire the public to create their own Money for Life plan with a financial advisor, Sun Life created a 360-degree visual reality (VR) video, transporting them to different scenarios based on their chosen life stage. This will enable the viewer to live the dream for a minute and be encouraged to start planning for their future through Money for Life and Sun Life’s life insurance and investment products.

Viewable with a VR headset, the video can be experienced in a customized bus called “Bus to the Future,” which will be making its way to different malls and campuses nationwide. For Cebu, Money for Life Bus visited University of San Carlos Cebu last June 24, 2016.
Meanwhile, those who will not be able to visit the “Bus to the Future” stops will still get a boost in their financial journey with the Money for Life e-Planner. They simply have to go to (moneyforlife.com.ph) and they can immediately start their financial planning, get product recommendations, and even buy mutual funds from Sun Life Asset Management Co., Inc.
“Financial Independence Month” is now on its third year of highlighting the national importance of financial preparedness among Filipinos. “This June marks a new beginning as Sun Life embraces its goal of serving five million clients in five years,” Mantaring said. “We are very much excited about the possibilities, and we look forward to helping our country rise to reach its full potential.”
