HONG KONG, Dec, 07 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - MetLife Hong Kong* has won the Corporate Citizenship Award in the prestigious BENCHMARK Wealth Management Awards for the third consecutive year, recognizing its continuous contributions to the Hong Kong community. This achievement follows MetLife Hong Kong's recognition as a "Caring Company" by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service.
Mr. Lee Wood, Chief Executive Officer of MetLife Hong Kong, said, "It's heartening to be recognized year after year for our work in Hong Kong communities by such prominent organizations. Giving back to society is an integral and cherished part of MetLife Hong Kong's corporate culture. We fulfill our civic commitments through various CSR programs and sponsorships of local charities and non-profit organizations. This is certainly a tradition we will build upon in the years ahead as we continue to promote a healthier, better and more inclusive society."

Mr. Wood, added, "I am so glad to see our employees and agents being truly engaged in this meaningful program. We are proud of the contributions being made by our employees, agents and MetLife Hong Kong, which bring books and literacy to children around the world. This reflects our commitment to ensuring a future in which we can continue helping people and communities navigate life together."
