A grand awards ceremony was held at the Kings Court, Cinnamon Lakeside, recently, to recognize the top performers from AIA and DFCC’s bancassurance channel.
The ceremony, aimed at celebrating the success of the bancassurance partnership between AIA Insurance and DFCC Bank is a testament to the strength of the relationship between the two parties.
The AIA DFCC Awards Ceremony felicitated all those from the AIA bancassurance and the bank branch team who excelled in 2016, due to their commitment and dedication to develop the bancassurance channel.
The award for Best AIA Bancassurance Executive of 2016 went to Nishara Gunawardena, while Naveendra Narangoda walked away with the award for ‘Best Cluster Head-Value Generation’. Nishan Rangana won the award for ‘Best Cluster Head-Volume Generation’. P. Ghengatharan of the Kotahena branch won the title of Top Bank Introducer. The most prestigious award for the night which was ‘The Best Branch’ award was won by the Kotahena branch with Galle and Batticoloa honoured as first and second runners-up, respectively.
Notably, AIA has 29 Million Dollar Round Table members (MDRT) from its bancassurance channel, out of which six of them are attached to the DFCC bank operation. These six MDRT members were also recognized at the awards ceremony, for their outstanding achievement. MDRT membership is internationally recognized as the highest standard of excellence in the world that a life insurance sales person can achieve.
