Canada Life has won the International Life Group (UK) award at International Adviser's Global Financial Services Awards in London, following evaluations by an independent panel of advisers and key industry figures.
Sean Christian, MD & Executive Director, International Businesses, said:
"This is excellent news and I'd like to take this chance to thank all the advisers and clients who have supported us. To receive this award, at this point, reflects the fact that the journey we are on to continuously improve our business is going in the right direction. We continue to receive record volumes of new business resulting in a 35% share of international bonds sold in the UK in Q3, as reported by the ABI market data. Our clear focus on the UK market means we truly understand the needs of the adviser and their clients."
Canada Life received the award in part because of the technological improvements made during 2017, including:
- Becoming the first international provider to offer 'real time' open architecture valuation messaging.
- Reducing the minimum premium on our leading Premiere and Premiere Europe Accounts.
- Advisers being able to access policy details and valuations online 24/7 as well as submit dealing instructions.
Canada Life has also recently been awarded Best International Life Company (UK) at the International Fund & Product Awards.
