When we hear about insurance agents, it usually sets off alarm bells in our heads, and the first thought is how to avoid them. These days, that mental image is slowly morphing into that of a young professional whose knowledge about the intricacies of insurance can help you navigate and make the most out of your hard-earned money. “Today, there is so much more to a professional career in life insurance than it was years ago," shares Gray Ramirez, an AIA Philippines Insurance Entrepreneur. “The rewards, benefits, and opportunities that open up are comparable to some of the best career tracks commonly found in other industries,” he added.
Gray was, for the first 15 years of his career, an executive in the BPO industry. As one can imagine, the years of irregular working hours eventually took its toll on his health, work, and relationship with his family. During one of his policy reviews with his financial advisor, Gray, a ten-year old AIA Philippines policyholder, was encouraged to become an Insurance Entrepreneur himself. And he did, joining AIA Philippines in late 2016. “It’s been life changing since then. I am now able to manage my own time. My wife even said I started to look healthier and happier as I get to spend more time with people who matter the most.”
