It's my pleasure to welcome you to the Cocolife website!

Since we started our commercial operations in 1978, our company has evolved to become the biggest Filipino-owned stock life insurance company in the country. Through the years, we have continually expanded and improved our operations and to date, we are one of only a handful of insurance companies offering a complete array of wealth management products and services. In line with our abiding mission to personalize our services, we have also established our presence at the grassroots level, with close to 60 brick and mortar branch offices nationwide.

Realizing the essential role of online connectivity in virtually every aspect of business as well as personal communications today, we have revitalized our company website as our first initiative in building up our presence in cyberspace. In this way, Cocolife will now be able to provide not only the human touch through our traditional channels, but also the immediate access, speed and transparency so demanded in this day and age.

We look forward to your visit so that you will learn more about our company and how we can help you realize a financially secure future for yourself and your loved ones.

Atty. Alfredo C. Tumacder, Jr.

Chairman

Welcome to the Cocolife website!

We approach our 4th decade of operation with high hopes of an even brighter future. We have refined our strategic directions and crystallized our priorities, having identified opportunities to enhance synergy and integration.

Our anchor has always been our corporate mission, which is to provide the benefits of insurance and related financial products and services to those who need it most. We strive to do this by offering a complete insurance portfolio to broad segments of the Philippine market through multiple distribution channels.

A recent review of our performance showed that growth has been generally upbeat and consistent. The year 2016 in particular, was a banner year. We were again the number one Group Insurance and Micro-insurance provider in the entire industry, and Individual Insurance as well as the Healthcare business lines registered double-digit premium growth rates. As a result, Cocolife’s overall premium surpassed the previous year by 17%, giving it the best performance since the company started operations. Net Income was also a record-high, with ROE at over 20%, which is one of the highest in the industry.

This year, our battle cry is “Cocolife Synergize”, as we raise our company to a higher level of performance by pooling and sharing the resources of our business units together and enhancing each other’s capabilities.

As we move forward, we are confident of delivering even more to our stakeholders. We intend to achieve our objectives and targets and we are singularly positive about the company’s future growth and direction.

  • Cocolife's Premium Income Totaled P6.8 Billion

    May 31, 2017

    Cocolife's Premium Income Totaled P6.8 Billion

    Financial Highlights

     

    In 2016, Premium Income or income exclusively from business operations totaled PhP6.8 billion, registering a robust 17% growth rate. It was a banner year for the company, having achieved the highest premium income level in its 38-year history. Investment income was also slightly higher than last year despite the persistent volatility in the stock market. Expenses were prudently administered, with the yearend figures approximating the budgeted provisions. The resulting net income was accordingly a new record-high, at PhP570 Million, with a growth rate of 13%.

    Marketing Initiatives

     

    1. Group Marketing – Industry-wide reputation for highly customized packages and prompt claims processing with personalized servicing has put Group Marketing Division as the perennial number one Group Insurance and Micro-insurance provider in the entire industry. It continued to close big corporate accounts as well as SMEs and has also continually expanded the Migrant Workers Insurance Program, in tandem with UCPB Gen. It managed to end the year with PhP1.95 billion, an exemplary performance by any measure.

     

    2. Healthcare – Despite the continuing price war and cutthroat competition in its industry, Cocolife Healthcare ended the year with a Total Premium Income of PhP2.03 billion, a strong 21% growth. It continued to reinforce its direct business unit and actively tapped the agency network as a distribution arm. Cocolife Healthcare’s main draws are still its reputation for prompt payment, highly customized plans and 24/7 servicing, delivered through one of the industry’s largest service provider networks.

     

    3. Individual Marketing – In 2016, IMD’s level growth was due mainly to a continuing manpower clean-up and the shift to Variable Life from traditional products. This resulted in a slight dip in the sale of traditional plans and a significant growth in VL (12.8%), as the agents transitioned. During the year training modules were directed to the marketing of VL in different markets and multifarious needs. An activation program for new agents was likewise initiated and foreign travel contests and drives were launched to boost recruitment and sales activities.

     

    4. Alternative Distribution Channels – ADC is an umbrella group comprised of Promo Sales, Bancassurance and Mass Marketing. In 2016, the combined new business brought in by the team breached the 2 billion mark, at P2.11B, which is a growth spurt of 60% over the previous year.

     

    a. Promo Sales - Promo operations have been put up in 28 major malls sites nationwide, bringing in an average of P41M a month in new business.

     

    b. DepEd Teachers Insurance and Loan Program – The DepEd market overseen by the Mass Marketing unit, currently generates an average of P11M in premiums monthly, apart from the loan business of more than P2.4 billion, extended to over 26 thousand teachers.

    Other Initiatives

     

    1. Finance – Comprehensive market monitoring, continual streamlining of procedures and realignment of organizational groupings were the key initiatives in maximizing investment opportunities and improving accounts management. The company’s Investment Group was recently awarded by the Association of Mutual Funds for outstanding performance for their Cocolife Fixed Income Fund and Cocolife Dollar Builder Fund.

     

    2. Other Programs – Major backroom activities that were continually reinforced were the ISO Quality Management System accreditation, various business conservation programs, and IT systems and telecommunications upgrading. Social responsibility initiatives have also been pursued, such as medical missions by the Healthcare team, Red Cross blood donation, and the continuing scholarship program for the children of coconut farmers sponsored through the UCPB-CIIF group Foundation.
