AIA Group has topped the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) rankings for the ninth consecutive year, with the insurer placing first among global, non-US, and multinational companies.

In the global list, AIA China, AIA Co. (Thailand), and AIA International (Hong Kong) all nabbed the top three spots. Tata AIA Life (India) snagged the fifth spot, while AIA Singapore rounded out the top 10. AIA Macau and AIA Vietnam also made it to the top 100.

All five AIA entities in the top 10 of the global list retained their rankings for the non-US companies list. Meanwhile, AIA Group (HK, China) topped the multinational list with a sizeable lead over the second-ranked Prudential (UK).

“I am incredibly proud that AIA has once again achieved the largest number of MDRT members globally,” said Lee Yuan Siong, AIA group chief executive and president. “This unprecedented accomplishment is a testament to the quality of AIA’s Premier Advisors and world-class agency leaders who are a key pillar of our unrivalled distribution platform. This competitive advantage has been built over decades and is one of the many reasons why AIA is uniquely positioned for future growth.”

FWD retains rank

Another pan-Asian insurer, FWD, celebrated retaining its high MDRT ranking for multinational companies at sixth place.

The group’s units also placed in the top 100 global companies for the MDRT, with FWD Vietnam placing the highest at 30th. FWD Life (Hong Kong) sits at 53rd, FWD Life (Thailand) reached 55th, and FWD Life (Philippines) at 57th. In total, the FWD Group now has 2,131 MDRT members.

“We are proud to earn our number six ranking for the second year in a row,” said Binayak Dutta, FWD managing director of emerging markets and group chief distribution officer. “The quality of our distribution footprint is incredibly important to our vision of changing the way people feel about insurance. These results reflect the dedication and performance of our distribution network, our ongoing investments in extensive training programmes and professional development alongside our digital capabilities.”
