Organised by the Hong Kong Federation of Insurers
("HKFI") in collaboration with the South China Morning Post, the Hong Kong
Insurance Awards is one of the most prestigious and reputable annual celebrations
in the Hong Kong insurance industry. The award program recognizes outstanding achievements
of insurance firms, teams, and individual practitioners.
Damien Green, Chief Executive Officer of Manulife Hong Kong and Macau,
said: "We are thrilled to have clinched five prestigious awards at this signature
industry event. These accolades are testament not only to the strong business
results we achieved this year and our persistent dedication to fostering talent,
but most importantly, to our unwavering dedication to the community of Hong
Kong as a committed corporate citizen serving the city for 124 years. Looking

health and protection solutions to help make customer decisions easier and live
every day better."
Manulife Hong Kong was honoured with the "Outstanding Corporate Social
Responsibility" award in recognition of its projects and commitment to "Share
Your Humanity" – one of Manulife's corporate values that entails finding
meaningful ways to build strong and resilient local communities. This has come
to the fore since the pandemic, to which the company responded swiftly with
targeted and necessary actions to meet immediate social needs. From being the
first insurer to give out free masks and health service vouchers, to enabling
at-home education with iPad donations, the entire Manulife team worked hard to
leverage its expertise in healthcare and digital solutions to support the community.
Customers also played a significant role – ManulifeMOVE members participated
in the 'MOVE for Good' challenge by keeping active for a good cause, their
steps and sweat were collectively turned into donated meals to people in need
and sports gear for under-resourced children.
Manulife Hong Kong made it to the top three for "Outstanding Integrated
Marketing Strategy" category thanks to its successful marketing strategy for
the company's updated critical illness product ManuBright Care 2. Through a
holistic campaign based on shaping perceptions and habits, Manulife was able to
transform peoples' perspectives towards critical illness by turning fear into
optimism and hope.
Manulife was also among the top three for the "Outstanding MPF /
Employees' Benefit Product / Service" award in recognition for its commitment to
providing high quality services as the largest MPF provider in Hong
Kong. The company offers the most comprehensive MPF platform in the
city with 29 constituent funds covering a wide spectrum of investment options,
enabling members to tailor their MPF portfolios under different market conditions.
