Sun Life renews tie up with Smart to promote financial literacy among cooperatives

Sun Life Philippines (Sun Life), the number 1 life insurance company in the country for the 12th year in a row, and Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart), the country’s fastest and best mobile network according to Ookla, have renewed their strategic partnership to increase financial literacy among Smart’s partner cooperatives.

The renewal will expand the program’s coverage, where financial literacy trainings will also be held for cooperatives in Benguet, Bulacan, Cavite, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, and Metro Manila throughout the year.

Sun Life and Smart are looking forward to exceeding the program’s success in 2022, where close to 500 cooperative members were engaged and educated on finance fundamentals and their relevance to their industry.

“Sun Life has always been a staunch advocate of financial literacy as we believe it plays a key role in achieving a brighter life. We are always looking for ways to elevate our efforts and help empower even more Filipinos to pursue their financial goals. I believe the renewal of our tie-up with Smart can help us do that,” Sun Life President Alex Narciso said.

“Given the key role that cooperatives play in their respective communities and in our country’s economy as a whole, it is important to empower them through financial literacy and digitalization. Through the renewal of this partnership with Sun Life, we are doubling down on our commitment to support our partner cooperatives and help provide them with relevant solutions,” FVP and Group Head of Smart Go-To Market and Subscriber Management Melvin Nubla said.

This collaboration with Smart is part of Sun Life’s efforts to spread its financial literacy advocacy and empower Filipinos in their journey to financial independence.
