Manulife has launched three films to give new meaning to insurance especially to the younger markets. The films, created by JWT Manila as part of Manulife's 110th anniversary campaign, aim to resonate with people using stories of how a Manulife plan could help them achieve their dreams - like being able to take on a life-changing trip, starting your dream business, or even pushing your child to reach greater heights.

A lot of people still associate insurance with unfortunate life events. They still see it in a traditional way. For some, insurance is something only for emergencies. It's what they leave their family when they're gone or something unexpectedly happens to them. Or it's something they won't be able to enjoy while they're alive and strong.

The brand wanted to drive consideration and conversion by showing tangible and direct ways Manulife can help people achieve their dreams. For this new campaign, Manulife wanted to give insurance new meaning - a whole new positive meaning.
