Insurance commissioner headlines 2021 Insurance Industry Outlook

MANILA TIMES WITH PIRA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MICHAEL F. RELLOSA



Press release


WHAT is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “insurance?” Is it something to secure your loved ones’ future when you’re gone? Is it protection for your business to ensure it can recover no matter what? Is it an investment today that will be rewarding tomorrow?


Whichever is top of mind for you, insurance is all these for everyone and much more.


The Philippine insurance industry is one of the most robust in the Asian region. With development dating back to nearly two centuries, the concept of insurance is not strange to our countrymen. From the very familiar life and nonlife insurance to the flourishing micro-insurance segments, more and more Filipinos are looking into getting insured, enabling the preneed industry to enjoy significant and steady growth through the decades.


With the pandemic and its resulting economic fallout radically shifting consumer needs, habits and expectations, industry experts wonder what’s in store for the years to come.


Join The Manila Times (TMT) as it holds the online business forum, titled “2021 insurance industry outlook.” Keynote speaker Dennis Funa, commissioner of the Insurance Commission (IC), shares insights and updates on the IC’s key policies and digital transformation to encourage further innovation, growth and investment in health, life, property and livelihood insurance as well as micro-Insurance.


The Times online forum also features Michael Rellosa, executive director of the Philippine Insurers and Reinsurers Association, and Rahul Hora, president chief executive director of AXA Philippines.


Livestreamed on The Manila Times Facebook page and YouTube channel and broadcast on The Manila Times TV on Tuesday, August 31 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, the “2021 insurance industry outlook” is hosted by Dante Francis “Klink” Ang 2nd, TMT president and chief executive officer (CEO), and moderated by Rey Lugtu, TMT business columnist and Hungry Workhorse CEO.
