Top Life and Non-life Insurance Companies in the Philippines

What are the top life and non-life insurance companies in the Philippines? Insurance is already an essential part of our living when it comes to securing our future, the future of our children, our business and our properties. Determining the best company that will manage your insurance involves a lot of consideration, such as its business stability, financial performance, handling of claims, cost of services, convenience, facilities, corporate governance, and customer care. These factors can be found on the insurer’s financial highlights, reputation, track records and customers’ feedback or testimonials.

Insurance companies may be classified into life and non-life insurance companies. Life insurance companies sell life insurance, annuities and pension products. On the other hand, non-life insurers typically insure your car, home or business. Non-life insurance is also called property and casualty insurance.

    “Insurance is already an essential part of our living when it comes to securing our future, the future of our children, our business and our properties.” – I certainly agree with your point. Having an insurance policy is definitely important to secure yourself and investment. I wasn’t very particular with this back then. But a friend of mine offered me a non-life car and accident insurance from MAPFRE Insular. I thought it was just a waste of money, but I found it quite handy when I got into an accident last year. It was definitely helpful in terms of cutting my medical expenses.
