FWD Life Philippines, the fastest growing life insurance company in the country today, bagged two prestigious awards at this year’s Asian Banking & Finance Insurance Asia Awards (IAA) which recognized the best in the Asian insurance industry at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore on July 20.

FWD was awarded the “Marketing Initiative of the Year” and “Digital Insurance Initiative of the Year” awards, demonstrating the new insurance brand’s commitment to a different approach in its marketing efforts, positioning itself as fresh, relevant, and engaged with customers in the Philippines.

“It’s rewarding to see that our efforts to encourage today’s youthful, creative, and diverse generation to live life passionately, are being recognized, even outside of the Philippines,” says FWD’s Head of Marketing Roche Vandenberghe.

“We are proud to have two winning campaigns,” shares FWD Life Philippines President and CEO Peter Grimes on receiving the awards. “It's particularly exciting us given we are still in our first full year of operations. We aim to continue with this momentum and pursue our vision of changing the way people feel about insurance.”

Live to Move, FWD’s innovative health and wellness advocacy campaign, won Marketing Initiative of the Year

The campaign encouraged an active and healthier lifestyle among Filipinos empowering Filipinos to get ready to live their lives to the fullest. FWD conceptualized the idea that drives “Live to Move” with a focus on lifestyle continuity and pursuit for passions, partnering with celebrity fitness coaches Jim and Toni Saret (“The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Season 2,” “Fit Filipino Movement”). Together they designed FWD Motion, a four-minute workout that provides benefits equivalent to one hour of exercise. Additionally, the campaign—which has just concluded its successful nationwide run last June—supported the Philippine Heart Association’s 52100 advocacy.

Life Is, FWD’s crowd-sourced digital passion campaign, won Digital Insurance Initiative of the Year

The “Life Is” campaign, meanwhile, highlighted FWD’s goal of empowering Filipinos to live a passionate life without hesitation. The multi-channel campaign featured a digital mural of photos and 15-second videos from ordinary people, who respond on what “Life Is” for them. Contributors shared their photos and video through FWD’s social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Vine) with the hashtag #GetReadyToLive.
