An update from Chris Hand

May 2024

Hi everyone

Through our conversations with many of you over the past few weeks, what’s loud and clear is it’s certainly tough out there at the moment, and we sincerely appreciate all the work you’re doing to service your customers and ensure they’re making the right decisions to protect their financial future not only for now, but in the long-term.

Supporting you and your customers

We know every bit counts, especially right now. It’s been wonderful to hear the difference our current offers including the 15% Lifetime Reward are making in your customer conversations. If you haven’t already, make sure you check out our website for everything you need to spread the word and share the value of these offers including our campaign toolkit and customer flyer.

We also appreciate it’s not just customers grappling with increased costs right now. Our recent pendulum commission enhancements are designed to support you to build stronger, more resilient and ultimately more valuable businesses, while also giving you more flexibility to support your customers.

The team and I have enjoyed hearing how the pendulum model is being incorporated into your businesses and how through our revised commission discounting options, the increase in the upfront component is enabling you to provide your customers a little extra support.

Remember, our renewal commission from month two provides additional support for you and your business too.

There’s a lot to consider when structuring your commission, so if you’re looking for some inspiration on how your business could benefit from Chubb Life’s different commission options, keep an eye out for some tips and tricks from us, coming to you soon.

Chubb Life Support Person of the Year is back

Following an overwhelming response last year, I’m thrilled to announce the Chubb Life Support Person of the Year award, where we celebrate a legend in your team who you couldn’t get by without, is back.

If you have a colleague who works tirelessly behind the scenes to help your customers get the financial advice and protection they need, simply tell us in a few sentences by 24 May why you think they deserve to win Chubb Life Support Person of the Year for 2024. We’ll announce the winners in our June newsletter. You can find out more and make your nomination here
