As part of our 35th anniversary celebrations, we have partnered with education providers in the main jurisdictions where we have members, awarding students not only based on their grades, but also on their natural talent and enthusiasm for the industry. The University College Isle of Man (UCM) Student Award winner will be announced later in the year.

Bob Pain, AILO CEO, recently visited UCM to officially launch the initiative (Click here to watch the UCM video) He said: “Our student awards support AILO’s mission to encourage the next generation of financial professionals in the industry and aligns with one of the three pillars that are central to our mission. Alongside advocacy and analysis, education is a key element of our activities for current and future professionals working in our industry. That’s why we wanted to celebrate our anniversary by rewarding students from the generation which will go on to shape the future of the life sector both here on the Island and internationally.”

Gail Corrin, UCM’s Higher Education Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be working with AILO, such a highly-respected organisation, and thank Bob and his colleagues for choosing a UCM student as an award recipient. The life industry will continue to create many career opportunities for our students in the years ahead, so it’s great to be working with an organisation that will help to support the sector’s future development.”
