Allianz PNB Life Advocates for Youth Financial Empowerment – ​​Manila Bulletin

Allianz PNB Life continues to champion financial literacy and empowerment, this time among young Filipinos, by releasing a webinar titled “Add to Life Bago Add to Cart: How to Protect and Enjoy your Adult Life”. The webinar was held on May 20, Friday, via Zoom.

The webinar was hosted by Harmony Adiao, with entrepreneur, social media creator and beauty queen, Ayn Bernos, and Allianz PNB Life Lead for Agency Transformation, Melissa Del Rosario, as keynote speakers. Allianz PNB Life President and CEO Alexander Grenz also participated by opening the webinar with his thoughts on growing the business and what the company plans to do to help Filipinos secure their future. .

“Our vision has always been to become the insurance partner of choice for Filipinos throughout their life course. That vision remains more relevant than ever,” Grenz said. “Fortunately, there is a greater awareness of the importance of having adequate protection among households, and we are more than ready to meet these needs.”

“Today’s event supports our company’s mission to serve as Life Changers who secure the future of our customers through simple, fair and sustainable solutions,” he added. “True to our corporate DNA, we [also] support advocacy [such as] youth empowerment, sustainable mobility and financial inclusion.

Allianz PNB Life also simultaneously launched its latest insurance product, Allianz Protect, during the webinar. Allianz Protect is a comprehensive insurance solution with a variety of coverages that can meet customers’ needs and budgets. For every policy purchased, P500 will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund Philippines (WWF-PH) Food Shed agricultural enterprise project.

Meanwhile, Adiao, Bernos and Del Rosario moderated a discussion on financial independence and what millennials and Gen Zers should do to achieve it.

“It’s kind of hard to figure out, especially if you’re browsing as an adult…you’re going from college to finally earning a salary [and you ask yourself]”Well, that’s perfect, but what do I do with it?” Bernos said.

Bernos shared his personal journey to learn how to manage his money and listed them for the public. “One of the first things I ever did was pay off a debt…after, [I built] my emergency fund. No matter how comfortable you feel, no matter how lucrative your business, your job is, you should always have an emergency fund. [The last one is] live below your means. Always know what your numbers are.

“We are playing the long game here,” added Adiao. “I guess that’s what the title really means too, right? Adding to life is the long-term way of doing things, while adding to cart is just short-term satisfaction. I think it’s important for everyone to realize that.

Del Rosario, on the other hand, offered his own insights as a millennial who works in the insurance industry.

“It’s really investing in yourself before anything else. You really have to be very smart about the things you buy, especially when you’re not really sure what the future holds,” Del Rosario pointed out. “[Allianz PNB Life] really focus our operations [and] our products on the customer. So what we see in the market and what needs to be seen in the market is what we choose to solve. »
