Plan­ning for the Fu­ture

Insurance - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

We do not spend enough time pre­par­ing for the fu­ture. Some of us choose to pay close at­ten­tion to the near fu­ture only but what about fur­ther into the fu­ture; what about dur­ing our re­tire­ment years? In this is­sue we fea­ture an in­depth guide on per­sonal fi­nan­cial plan­ning by an ex­pert from the Se­cu­ri­ties Com­mis­sion, Mr. Thechi­namoor­thy. Un­der­stand the piv­otal steps that you can take to­day to in­sure a brighter fu­ture ahead for you and loved ones. We are also proud to bring to you an in­depth look at the broking in­dus­try and how it cor­re­lates with the in­surance in­dus­try. Alex Low, Chair­man of MITBA takes us through some of the key el­e­ments to raise the stan­dards of the broking in­dus­try and the plans they have in place. This is­sue also fea­tures In­surance mag­a­zine’s first round­table dis­cus­sion on Life In­surance and fea­tures the var­ied view of some of our in­dus­try’s top pro­fes­sion­als. We hope this style of fea­ture is well re­ceived and we in­vite other pro­fes­sion­als in the in­dus­try to come for­ward to par­tic­i­pate in th­ese types of dis­cus­sions. Malaysian In­surance In­sti­tute be­lieves that such dis­course is paramount to spread­ing knowl­edge, iden­ti­fy­ing is­sues and bring­ing in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als to­gether for the ben­e­fit of all in­volved. Our fre­quent contributor, Raja Ahmad Khirud­din, also in­cludes a well writ­ten piece on tal­ent man­age­ment waste and some con­tribut­ing fac­tors that con­stantly arise as well as how to man­age this is­sue in the most timely and cost ef­fec­tive way. Last but not least we have high­lights from the last Mil­lion Dol­lar Round Ta­ble MCC CEO/CAO break­fast fo­rum. The in­au­gu­ral break­fast fo­rum was to have an in­ter­ac­tive di­a­logue to ex­plore how MDRT may be able to as­sist the com­pa­nies with chal­lenges they face in de­vel­op­ing their agency chan­nels. As we en­ter the fi­nal quar­ter of 2014, I would like to wish our In­dian read­ers a very Happy Deep­avali as well!

En­joy this is­sue!
