On the 19th of March, 2013, Pacific Prime received the award for Bupa International’s Top Global Distributor for the first time. Global CEO of Bupa, Stuart Fletcher, presented the award at the ceremony in Italy where approximately 50 of Bupa’s leading global intermediaries gathered for this special event.
Pacific Prime was chosen to receive the award over 3000 worldwide intermediaries who represent and sell for both Bupa International and IHI Denmark, including both agencies and brokers. The decision to award the Top Global Distributor Award is based on a company’s overall portfolio size as well as factors such as growth rate, quality of service and advice provided by the intermediary.
“We are incredibly proud to win this award, Pacific Prime is committed to giving its clients the best advice possible and it is very satisfying when this is also recognized by insurers, particularly one as important as Bupa International”, commented CEO of Pacific Prime, Neil Raymond.
With offices around Asia and the Middle East, Pacific Prime has been growing and developing for over a decade and has since gained an outstanding reputation for the quality of its service and staff. Today, Pacific Prime works with a broad range of client types including individuals, SME’s and Corporate’s and now has 200 staff worldwide assisting over 100,000 clients.
The Top Global Distributor award ceremony takes place at the start of each year and previously, the award has only been received by agencies or brokers based in the Middle East or in Europe. This is the first time the award has been won by a primarily Asian based distributor. Bupa International global sales director, Tim Slee, commented after the ceremony:
“I was delighted to be able to present the top distributor award at our conference this year to Neil and the team from Pacific Prime. At Bupa International, we value greatly our relationships with our distributors and in Pacific Prime, we have found the highest quality of advice coupled with a real drive to expand their business into many parts of the world…”
Bupa has recently been developing its International Private Medical Insurance segment in Asia, namely in the China and Singapore markets. Pacific Prime has almost a decades worth of experience in both these markets and has developed a positive relationship with Bupa as a result.
“Over the past 5 years, most leading IPMI providers International private medical insurers have invested in Asia to expand their presence. Much of this is based on anticipated future growth, but we are beginning to see a lot of progress and the development of the market. Bupa is exceptionally well placed to take advantage of this and we look forward to working with them over the next 10 years” commented Mr. Raymond.
