List of Insurance Companies in the Philippines with Certificates of Authority (Extended License)

Posted by Grace under Insurance on October 20, 2014

Looking for the list of insurance companies in the Philippines with license to operate? Let us study “insurance”, its definition and importance. Planning to buy a life insurance in the Philippines? Here are the lists of insurance companies in the Philippines whose certificates of authority were extended for license year 2014-2015.

Here in, I don’t only inform the readers about good investment opportunity in the Philippines, but also inform them about the importance of insurance. You should never divert your attention immediately in any of the investment opportunity without your life insurance. It is a “must” that anybody should have insurance.


Some people insured their car, their homes and their business as well as their investment capital for protection. In my own opinion, a “life” itself is the first to get insured rather than the things mentioned.

What is Insurance?

It is important to know the meaning of insurance. “Insurance is the practice by which an individual secures financial compensation for a specified loss of damage resulting from risk of any sort, by contract with a company to which he pays regular premiums, the profession of drawing up some contracts, the contract drawn up, the protection afforded by this, the premium demanded for such protection, the sum for which something is insured”.

Insurance policy is the contract drawn up between an individual and an insurance company.
Insurant – someone to whom an insurance policy is issued.

Sometimes it is frustrating when you shop around and talking to an insurance agent about insurance. In my experience, when I am buying my insurance, although it is my first time, the agent offers me immediately VUL, he explained me that it has an insurance and an investment at the same time.

He didn’t ask me first if I am investing already or not. That time I invested in mutual funds,stocks and started to invest in BDO UITF Easy Investment Plan. (Do not do what I did, get insurance first before investing, okay!)

I am very frustrated because the agent insisted the VUL product, when I am searching the best mutual fund companies and their performance, his company didn’t belong to top 5. My rule in investing is to invest only with the topnotcher and forget the rest. (Example mutual fund top companies (equity and balanced fund): Philequity Fund Inc, FAMI-SALEF)

I assume that the agent wasn’t that familiar with the product he is offering, or he don’t really know fully the company he is working or affiliated with. If I am an insurance agent, I would let the client first to speak to talk about himself, his work, his financial status, his family and his needs to speak what he really wants or needs.

Priority of Life Insurance agents

The priority of a life insurance agent should be the client needs not the “sales commission”. If you are buying insurance, you can smell and read the mind of an agent if he is willing to help you or not. Am I right? I don’t want to mention the company wherein their agent aren’t familiar with financial products, or let me say “unprofessional”, “unethical” salesman.
