For the second year in a row, Pacific Prime is proud to announce that Bupa International has named Pacific Prime its Top Global Distributor for 2014. Of over 5,000 agents and brokers worldwide, of which over 200 were in attendance at the ceremony in Gleneagles, Scotland, Pacific Prime was selected for this prestigious achievement. The Chairman of Bupa, Lord Leitch, presented the award.
Pacific Prime's CEO, Neil Raymond, said after the ceremony: "We enjoy working with Bupa because of their commitment to our clients and the health insurance industry in general. We can see that Bupa have been working hard over the past few years to improve customer service, the results of which are now visible to us and our clients. For this reason they are always an insurer we consider when helping our clients select the right coverage."
For over 10 years, Pacific Prime has worked with Bupa International, and since then we have become its top global distributor. The Bupa top distributor award is typically awarded to a Bupa International agency, not a broker, and to companies based in Europe or the Middle East. Pacific Prime is the only Asia-based broker who has won this award, let alone two years in a row.
Tim Slee, Sales & Commercial Director at Bupa International, commented after the ceremony: "I was delighted to see Pacific Prime once again receiving the award for top overall distributor 2013 at Bupa Global Distributor and Partner conference 2014, this year held at the Iconic Gleneagles hotel. Many congratulations to all the team at Pacific Prime and I thank them for their continued support."
Pacific Prime has been a leading global distributor of international private medical insurance in Asia and the Middle East for over ten years. The company works with over 33 health insurers and has always been recognised for its expert advisers and quality service. Pacific Prime not only specializes in health insurance, but travel insurance as well, and in addition to winning this award from Bupa for health insurance, Pacific Prime has recently won another top distributor award from ihi-Bupa for travel insurance for 2013!
"Going forward we are increasingly looking to insurers we can trust," said Raymond. "Over the past 24 months several international insurers have pulled out of certain health insurance markets leaving some clients disadvantaged. For this reason, working with a quality insurer like Bupa is so important. I am very confident we can continue to grow our relationship around the world with Bupa, and we look forward to competing for their top distributor award next year!"
