MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Like most dads, Paolo Valenciano wants his family to be safe and secure. 

More than just being known as the first-born son of Mr. Pure Energy, Gary Valenciano, Paolo carved his own path in the live-events industry as an events and concert director. 

In 2016, Paolo and his wife Sam, sweetly welcomed their baby girl, Leia. Now 4 years-old, Leia is a toddler who loves to make her parents smile. “She is such an active character so being her parent is a lot of fun. She never fails to make us laugh,” shares Paolo.

As a dad, he wants to be a source of security and comfort for Leia. Growing up, he looked up to his dad as a playmate and confidant. He wants to have the same bond and relationship with his daughter which is why despite having a busy schedule, he tries to always spend time with her. “I want her to feel I’m always there for her, a father who is always available; who is always listening. My dad was always a listener, and it made us feel secure and safe knowing we can run to him when we need help. I want to be like that for Leia.  I want her to always come to me anytime she needs any kind of help.”

On future plans and the importance of protection

Growing up in a home with a major health concern has really shaped and affected Paolo’s view on parenthood. When his own father underwent health issues back when he was a kid, he realized the importance of health and protection. “You’re always thinking that a Sunday lunch or dinner could be the last meal together. You look at life from a completely different perspective. It makes you appreciate the details,” he shares.

Now that he is also a dad, Paolo wants to make sure that his family is secure and protected. 

Protection for All

As a company committed to its mission of racing against risk to protect more Filipinos, AIA Philam Life completed its Protection Trinity of innovative products designed to address the most basic protection needs: life with AIA All-in-One, critical illness with AIA Critical Protect 100, and medical with AIA Med-Assist. This year, the Company launched the newest addition to the roster, AIA Health Cover.

Launched in 2019, AIA Critical Protect 100 provides comprehensive protection from 100 critical illnesses, from age 0 to 100. Shortly after, AIA All-In-One was introduced which provides protection against the four major risks in life: total and permanent disability, personal accident, critical illness, and death. To help manage the financial burden of Filipinos on hospitalization expenses, the Company developed AIA Med-Assist

To further strengthen its Protection Trinity portfolio, AIA Philam Life recently launched its newest insurance plan, AIA Health Cover. This peso-dominated variable life insurance plan gives all-around health and critical illness protection. It provides you a full range of health benefits and coverage for concerns you may have now or in the future.

With the Covid-19 pandemic bringing much uncertainty in the lives of Filipinos, Paolo emphasized the importance of security. “We need to protect our family. These days, I do whatever I can to make sure they have what they need.”
