President's Message: God's call for reflection

Even before the season of Advent begins, the signs of Christmas are already around us. We are filled with joy and excitement thinking of what gifts to buy for family and friends. We start decorating our houses with lights, a glittering Christmas tree and at times, a "Belen" - the scene of the Nativity.  read more »

Remembering the Saints and Our Departed Loved Ones

All Saints Day and All Souls Day are two occasions that are observed by the whole country as a holiday to give time for people to visit their dead relatives in the cemetery. This practice is not just among Catholics because the occasion is also an opportunity for families to get together with relatives they see only once a year.  read more »

2014 PRESIDENT’S REPORT

ARSENIO ISIDRO G. YAP

The year in retrospect, saw the country successfully register a bright economic growth rate making its mark as the third fastest growing economy in Asia. The insurance industry however was on a different trend. In the first nine months of the year, the industry went on a slow down especially with life insurance companies in terms of total premiums. The slowdown however did not perturb your Association’s strong financial stability and remained resolute to its commitment to provide a secure future for us, brother knights and our families.  read more »

2013 President's Report

ARSENIO ISIDRO G. YAP

In 2013, the country continued to foster a phenomenal economic growth rate of 7.2% that boosted business and consumer confidence especially in the insurance industry.  The year however, was not without its ups and downs. Political scandals and natural calamities threatened to undermine the economic gains from the past years.  The unprecedented devastation wrought by super typhoon “Yolanda” and other natural calamities that battered the Visayas region in some way shaved off some of these gains by the end of the year.  Yet, despite these adversities, the country continued to show a positive trend in economic growth and a bright future for the industry.  read more »

2010 President's Report

ALONSO L. TAN

The Philippines has been performing well in the previous years despite the effects of the global recession in 2008. The year 2010 was yet another challenging year as the country experienced decline in the agriculture sector due to El Niño and diminished government spending. However, the Philippines managed to perform remarkably as it ended with a record high GDP growth of 7.3% from 1.1% in 2009. Record growth rates in foreign trade, election related stimuli, overseas Filipino workers’ remittances and renewed trust in government are some of the contributors to the country’s economic performance.  read more »

2009 President’s Report

ANTONIO B. BORROMEO

In the face of uncertainties and anxieties brought about by the previous year’s global recession, the Philippine economy generally weathered the challenges of 2009 better than its regional peers. This was mainly due to the country’s minimal exposure to securities issued by troubled global financial institutions and its low dependence on exports. Likewise, its relatively resilient domestic consumption, supported by large remittances from millions of overseas Filipino workers, and a growing business process outsourcing industry were the attributions for the nation’s performance.  read more »
