Metropolitan Recognizes top Achievers

10 March, 2014

Metropolitan Botswana held a glittering Gala event to recognise the achievements of its most outstanding employees at a low key ceremony at Gaborone International Convention Centre(GICC) Saturday night.

"It is important to note that financial advisors have a critical role to play in the market and the economy of this country. The main role is to educate us and the nation at large on a variety of issues pertaining to wealth creation," said Thabo Lejowa, Regional Manager for Metropolitan Botswana.

He said, "This includes regulatory framework governing our industry. There is a growing trend to put through strict regulatory requirements in the market. This places the responsibility on us as financial advisors to educate our customers on different regulations."

Lejowa stressed the importance of excellence in customer service.

"It is of paramount importance to ensure that our products are relevant, that our documents are of good quality and most of all that our turn around times on clients' requests are reasonable and competitive," said Lejowa.

He said, "We as financial advisors are in a better position to represent our clients, hence the responsibility is yet again placed on us to challenge the relevance or the lack there of our products and operational efficiencies. As I mentioned we should boldly challenge the status quo."

Metropolitan Botswana therefore created the the annual DW/BPI (Direct Writer Agent Award), who allegedly possesses a number of important qualities.

A DW/BPI as we affectionately refer is:

• The guy you call when you are serious about creating a legacy.

• The guy you trust "undividedly"with your money

• The guy, you will thank one day

• The guy who sacrifices himself for the benefit of others.

The DW/BPI/BPI is a rare type of being, and it is in this regard that their achievements were celebrated by Metroplitan Botswana. They are those individuals and teams that have gone above and beyond their set targets/performance and continue to be shinining examples for all employees.

• Conservation above 80% for all competitions
