Pru Life UK accredited as CIMA Training Quality Partner, CEO receives CGMA distinction

Pru Life UK President and CEO Antonio Manuel de Rosas recently received the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). Mr. De Rosas is the first Filipino in the Philippines to receive the CGMA distinction.

The CGMA designation was established by AICPA and CIMA, two of the most respected accounting bodies, to elevate management accounting, recognizing the importance of management accountants in the business and finance industry as they have the capacity to provide communication and leadership skills in guiding their companies while displaying a strong business acumen and financial know-how.

Under the leadership of Mr. De Rosas, Pru Life UK posted a 33 per cent growth in 2011, with a Total Gross Premium Income of PhP10.4 billion, up from PhP7.8 billion in 2010. Total Gross Premium Income is the premium income earned (first year, single and renewal years), gross of reinsurance, for the period.

Likewise, Pru Life UK, the sole British life insurer in the Philippines, was accredited as a CIMA Training Quality Partner on February 20, 2012.

Under the CIMA Training quality assurance scheme, the high standards of instruction for CIMA students are delivered to anywhere in the world with consistency.

CIMA Global Director of Learning Development K Peng Tam shared the significance of obtaining this accreditation, saying, “CIMA Training enables accredited partners to plan, monitor and improve their training program against benchmarks so that it matches or surpasses the best on offer elsewhere. The CIMA Training Quality Partner level is the recommended level of support advocated by CIMA to enable students to successfully progress through the exams and achieve full professional membership.”

CIMA is the largest organization of management accountants, geared towards relevant training to enhance the qualification of its members in the finance industry.
