Sun Life as the Top-of-Mind Life Insurance Brand in the Philippines

Sun Life aimed to retain its position as a trusted brand globally, and this was sustained in the Philippines by consistently topping the brand awareness, familiarity, and consideration scores against competitors. The company cemented its position in 2023 as a top-of-mind brand by mounting a series of brand campaigns and activations to encourage more Filipinos to secure their health and wealth. Both campaigns were executed using digital and traditional advertising and communications, ensuring a wider reach and a more impactful outcome.

Freedom to Live Brighter: A Next Gen Financial Literacy Advocacy

After launching the Philippines’ first ever multimedia campaign on financial literacy back in 2010, the company endeavored to refresh and update its advocacy to appeal to young audiences. This was done through the “Freedom to Live Brighter” campaign, which featured four digital films ideated and written by Sun Life’s very own team Gen Z multimedia artists. A landing page was likewise created as a one-stop hub that shared tips and solutions for various life stages and needs. The campaign successfully refreshed Sun Life’s financial literacy advocacy and expanded the company’s appeal to the younger generation, as shown in the significant increase in awareness among the younger age group.

Team of the Year Special Award

Sun Life Philippines’ Client Experience & Marketing Department was also honored with the Team of the Year Special Award, which highlights the highest-scoring entries submitted by an agency or organization.
