Did you know that Sun Life is the first and the oldest (125 years) insurance company in the Philippines? It also has more than 5 million clients as of 2020. So if you are ready to change your life while helping others, then you’re in the right place.
Sun Life is established in 1895, three years before the Republic of the Philippines was founded. So Filipinos can enjoy the humanitarian benefits of insurance.
Why Become a Sun Life Financial Advisor?
There are more reasons why you should join Sun Life aside from the attractive compensation package. Here you can spend quality time with your family while having a purposeful career.
Earn Unlimited Income
Have you ever felt being salary-restricted when shopping in a mall? How about eating out and being freaked out by how much a single dish costs? Ughh, your dream vacation is put on hold because of a limited budget?
Did you know that Financial Advisors get to write their paychecks?
Similarly, if you pursue this career, then you will get to buy your wants, eat without looking at the price on the menu and take a vacation without breaking your budget.
I bought my first car using my earnings as a Sun Life advisor. It is something I need to service my beloved clients. Now, I’m looking forward to buying my dream car.
I earned my first million. Most advisors will say that they bought a car, started a business, made their first million, and so on when they joined Sun Life. I guess it’s possible if you’re working hard in a great company. It’s genuinely a fulfilling job when you can get the things you deserve.
Work on Your Most Productive Time
Are you tired of waking up daily at 4 am to prepare for work at 8 am? How about the ever stressful traffic from home going to your office? I know it’s frustrating to brave EDSA just to arrive late. But once you join Sun Life, you will not be required to wake up early. In other words, you can rise from bed at 9 am and still be productive.
Enjoy Professional Growth
Sun Life offers financial assistance in your competency. It also provides FREE training and seminar so you can be confident in answering the questions of your clients. Promotion is also given to those who perform well, regardless of age and tenure. I’ve seen as young as 22 yrs old being promoted to unit manager, making him the youngest unit manager in Sun Life’s history. Who knows if you’re the next in line?
The picture above is us while enjoying our all-expense paid trip by Sun Life for 3 days and 2 nights in Shangri-la Boracay. We did not even spend a centavo for this whole trip from food, transportation, and accommodation.
Get Rewarded for Your Efforts
Don’t you love to be recognized for your hard work? No matter how big or small the battle Sun Life knows how to recognize it through simple prizes like jackets, certificates, cash incentives, medals, trophies, and even one of your dream vacations like a trip in Boracay, Bohol, Japan, Caribbean, etc. On top of that, Sun Life is very generous in giving bonuses you won’t usually get by working in an office setup.
A Business of Helping Others
What I truly love about being in this career is the power vested in us to change the lives of our clients. Commission, incentives, bonuses, etc. are just like icing on the cake. Above all, nothing beats the happiness that comes from securing the future of a family. We’re not there only to collect payments but rather to become part of their incredible journey toward financial freedom.

Learn More About Our Team
Our team will be called “The Wise Guys.” Just like how I started in Sun Life, and you came to know me is through my FB page and personal blog, “The Wise Guy.”
Who is Federico?
My name is Federico Suan, Jr., an electronics engineer who founded TheWiseGuyPH in 2017. I joined Sun Life in the hope of creating more income for the growing needs of my family since my father died in 2015.
To date, I am the youngest successful financial advisor in one of Sun Life Branches in Makati. I was able to achieve that despite being so timid, lacking the right market to offer my services, and having no sales experience at all.
You may wonder how I made it, right?
My need during that time is more significant than my fears. So I just have done what I have to do. Shy? I joined several activities and communities wherein I can practice my social skills. No market? I created my own thru Facebook and Google marketing. No sales experience? I read books, watched sales techniques on youtube, and enrolled in several workshops to upskill myself.
And if I’ve done it, then there’s no reason for you not to.
You might even surpass me, and I’ll be more than happy to be part of your success.
