Kuala Lumpur, 08 Feb 2021
Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Life) launched the Allianz Career of Excellence and Opportunity (C.E.O.) Programme that aims to nurture new talents and develop leaders within the company.

The 24-month training programme applies a proven success model which implements focus-coaching and personalised mentoring with the Allianz Life’s management team. Participants will obtain the chance to be certified as an Estate Planner – agents who specialise in estate planning – through a series of high intensity training sessions.

Participants will also receive a guaranteed monthly financial assistance of up to RM12,000 throughout the two years.

Allianz Life Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Gross said the company takes a great deal of interest in investing in its people.

“I am proud to see the C.E.O Programme take off as we strive to deliver an ongoing talent development mechanism that serves to enhance people's skills and knowledge. I foresee the calibre of individuals who will become part of our organisation in the coming years and I am excited at the prospect of welcoming a workforce motivated by passion to serve our community,” Gross said.

In November 2020, the insurer had also inked a training services agreement with the Malaysian Financial Planning Council (MFPC) which will enable Allianz Life agents to enrol in the Council’s Professional Estate Planning Adviser Programme (PEPAP).

Through the certification programme, Allianz Life agents will be able to gain in-depth knowledge on how to integrate these services into effective financial or estate planning. 

Meanwhile, Gross said it is timely to kick start the C.E.O. Programme amid rising unemployment rate in the country.

Data from the Department of Statistics Malaysia showed that the unemployment rate for November 2020 was higher by 1.6 percentage points YoY to 764,400 unemployed persons, compared with 513,900 persons in November 2019.

“At Allianz, we try our best to protect people in any situation. Through the C.E.O. Programme, we hope to keep a lot of Malaysians from unemployment and help them in securing a better future.

“In addition, there is a huge market to tap in the life insurance sector as less than 40% from Malaysia’s 33 million population own a life insurance plan,” Gross said.
