LUAP national president Karen Yulo said the association wants to honor and celebrate the dedication, passion, and success of our life insurance agents, financial advisors, insurance professionals, as well as the companies that produced them through PhilLIAA.
“They have played a vital role in making sure that our growth is never hindered by our current situation. And in the past two years, they have shown us their resilience and hard work to help the industry bounce back stronger, notwithstanding the unfavorable economic effects of the pandemic,” Yulo said.
