Sun Life Strengthens Efforts to Aid Business Owners

How do you feel about this story?


As the COVID-19 pandemic begins to slow down and more businesses reopen, Sun Life Philippines is stepping up its efforts to aid business owners in their journey towards recovery.

To help business owners understand the essentials of tax management, Sun Life held a webinar entitled “Effective Tax Planning” with the former president of Tax Management Association of the Philippines, Atty. Benedict Tugonon, at the helm.

Meanwhile, women business owners were engaged through a webinar entitled “Women Mean Business: Breaking Barriers and Forging Success.” Featured in the event were:

  • Shoppertainment Live, Inc. Co-founder and CEO Hiyasmin Beri-Soyao,
  • WILCON Depot, Inc. SEVP-COO Rosemarie Bosch Ong,
  • Ever Bilena Cosmetics, Inc. Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Denice Sy, and
  • Jeron Travel & Tours Corp. CEO Chal Chang Lontoc-Del Rosario.

“Even before the pandemic began, Sun Life was already active in engaging business owners, in a bid to help them secure their businesses financially through insurance and investments,” Sun Life Chief Client Experience and Marketing Officer Carla Gonzalez-Chong said. “Our Sun Future Proof program and Business Owner Insurance Packages were especially designed for this purpose.”

Sun Future Proof is a two-pronged program that brings together financial education and financial solutions. With this combination, business owners can be more resilient in facing challenges in the future.

Meanwhile, the Business Owner Insurance Packages (BIP) are product combinations designed to address the financial needs of entrepreneurs both for their business and personal goals. The options include BIP Emergency Fund + Lifetime Protection, BIP Health Protection, BIP Education Fund, BIP Key Employee Protection, BIP Partner/Shareholder Protection, BIP Retirement Fund, and BIP Estate Protection.

“We have seen many success stories among business owner clients who were able to use their insurance and investments to protect their businesses especially at the height of the pandemic,” Gonzalez-Chong said. “Sun Life hopes to replicate these stories for more of Filipino entrepreneurs, so they can achieve their financial goals.”
