The Forum

Right after the Trivia Night, the event then hopped in to its highlight of the night – becoming a Sun Life Financial Advisor.

One of the speakers of the night was Miss Marga Bernardo, a regional sales manager, discussed with the crowd a short detail of how Sun Life started back then and at the same time, shared with us the benefits of becoming part of Sun Life.

In terms of financial rankings, among the Insurance brands in the country, Sun Life is the only life insurance that belongs to the top 100. And based on the standard and poor ratings, Sun Life ranks AA which means very strong. And for its financial strength based on A.M. Best, Sun Life ranks A+ which means superior and this signifies that the brand is indeed financially stable as a whole.

Sun Life Business is all about helping people. The sound of advice is to understand the financial needs of individuals. Their main advocacy is to spread financial literacy everyone deserves.

At Sun Life, they don’t just help you manage your financial goal but they also take care of their clients.

Sun Life provides different financial solutions that each of client’s needs. They are into customized solutions provider and the following are what they offer:

  1. Risk Protection – This one is about income protection. This protects your family. An example is what when a breadwinner dies, the expenses don’t. It even increases. So to protect your family from sudden death of the breadwinner, the risk protection plays a big role to the family.

  1. Critical Illnesses Protection – Protecting our family from sudden financial expenses. Critical illnesses are like the thieves of the night. We never know when we will they be attacking but the least we can do is to help our family from expenses that they could possibly face when you happen to find yourself in one of those considered critical illnesses like cancer and such.

  1. Education Funding – Prepare for your kids’ future. Every year, tuition fee increases and years from now, the amount you knew that it would cost you to send a child for school could double

  1. Wealth Management – Investment planning. As early as you invest, the larger the return you get when you retire in the future.

Saving Vs Investment

Saving is technically about money while investment is about growing your money.

Most bank interest rates range from 3.5% to 5% while the inflation rate in the country is now 5.2%. And if you’ll consider saving instead of investment, you sure are actually losing money due to negative compounding instead of really growing your money. Unlike saving, investment provides you the financial freedom you need and it also prepares you for tomorrow. There is where insurance like Sun Life helps you make that happen.
