Top Life Insurance Companies in the Philippines 2012

I’ve been getting a lot of email inquiries asking who the real Top Life Insurance Company in 2012. Some of them were saying according to the news, it is Sun Life. But according to some people they talked to from Pru Life UK, it is them. And still, some say it is still Philam Life.

Though they are all over the news as well as blogs, this issue can be quite confusing really. Why? Simply because, Insurance Commission used to rank these life insurance companies based on different categories. But that was in the previous years.

Starting last year 2012, for the Top Life Insurance Company in the Philippines, the Insurance Commission consolidated the categories into just one report – based on Premium Income. But then again, I’m not saying that they are wrong when one insurance company claims they are number one in a certain category. That may be true and they are entitled to that. But you now know what’s the real measurement, it is based on Premium Income.

Premium income is actually the grand total of all the other categories namely First Year Annualized Premium, Single Pay Premiums and Renewal Premiums. You can actually check the uploaded file in the website of Insurance Commission here
