Fortune Life celebrated 36th Annual Awards virtually

Leading life insurer Fortune Life Insurance Co., Inc. vowed to continue strengthening our online facilities for the benefit of both our policyholders and salesforce members.

During Fortune Life’s 36th Annual Awards last June 11, which was held virtually via Zoom and streamed on the company’s official Facebook page, President D. Arnold A. Cabangon expressed confidence that the company will be able to attain, and even exceed our sales goal for 2021 despite the challenges of the pandemic.

“Among the priority projects for this year are online selling tools for the agents, web-based self-service customer support, and online payment facilities with partner banks, Dragonpay, and GCash, for the convenience of our clients. I assure you that the management will continue to support our salesforce to attain and even exceed our sales goal for 2021,” Mr. Cabangon said in his message.

Commending the company’s Top Sales Achievers for the year, Mr. Cabangon shared how his father and Fortune Life founder, Ambassador Antonio L. Cabangon Chua, “would have been very proud of you, as each of you embodies his values of perseverance combined with hard work and discipline.”

Executive Vice President Emma M. Abad underscored the great strength shown by the company’s salesforce members in the face of a global health crisis. “Our salesforce, especially our top producers, not only showed resilience but also persistence in achieving their sales goals.
