AIA Group Limited (AIA or the Company), the largest independent publicly listed pan-Asian life insurance group and Philam Life’s parent company, announced the signing of a multi-year agreement with David Beckham, making him the Company’s Global Ambassador. 

In this newly created role, Beckham will support AIA in its goal of helping people in the Asia-Pacific region live longer, healthier, better lives. 

Mark Tucker, AIA’s Group chief executive and president, said, “We are delighted to welcome David as AIA’s Global Ambassador. David is an incredibly successful global sporting icon, a committed family man and is hugely respected for his longstanding community and charity work; most notably as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador over the past 12 years.” 

Ng Keng Hooi, AIA’s Group chief executive and president designate, said, “David is a natural fit with AIA as we pursue our purpose to play a leadership role in the social and economic development of the communities we serve and in doing so, helping millions of people across the Asia-Pacific region to live longer, healthier, better lives.” 

Beckham, said, “Joining the AIA family was an easy decision for me. I am a passionate believer in the value of wellness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and I share AIA’s commitment to encourage people to take charge of their health. 

“Throughout my career in elite sport, and in my role as a parent, I have always tried to be the best I can be by training hard and setting a positive example to those around me. I am looking forward to working closely with AIA and supporting the Company’s efforts to improve the quality of people’s lives across the Asia-Pacific region.” 

Philam Life, AIA’s local subsidiary, shares the same vision of changing public perception towards life insurance. David Beckham is a global icon and having him join the AIA Family adds momentum to Philam Life’s efforts to empower more Filipinos to lead healthy lifestyles and have a long life.
