SINGAPORE — Singlife with Aviva, a leading homegrown financial services company, announces the appointment of Mediacorp Artiste, Pierre Png, as its brand ambassador. Png fronts the first brand campaign for Singlife, following the merger of Singlife and Aviva Singapore at the start of the year.
Singlife’s first brand campaign, “The Jugglers,” is a year-long movement to highlight what financial freedom means to individuals. Png’s image will feature prominently in the campaign to raise awareness about how anyone can live out their best life on their own terms if they take control of their finances with the right tools.
Png made his ambassadorial debut during Singlife’s recent sustainability program launch on June 22, where he planted trees at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Singlife pledged to plant 300 trees a year for the next five years, in support of the National Parks Board’s OneMillionTrees initiative.
Png is well-known in the region’s entertainment scene, having starred in multiple Mediacorp productions over the years. He is best known for his breakout role as Phua Chu Beng in the long-running local sitcom Phua Chu Kang, as well as his award-winning lead roles in Zero Calling and The Journey: A Voyage, and for making his Hollywood debut in the 2018 rom-com blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians.
In addition to Png, “The Jugglers” also features his spouse of 18 years and former host-actress, Andrea De Cruz. Outside of their acting and hosting accomplishments, they are strong advocates of health and financial wellness. Their versatility as actors, inspirational relationship, and deep Singaporean roots make them complementary partners for Singlife. The couple last appeared together in 2019 for a CNA Luxury short festive film: Finding Christmas.
Commenting on the announcement, Png said, “Singlife with Aviva’s commitment to empowering Singaporeans to achieve financial freedom is something I strongly believe in, as someone who always strives to balance health and wealth amid life’s challenges. I’m honored to represent a brand that supports our local aspirations and is committed to being here for the long term and helping customers.”
“The Jugglers” was conceived to help build awareness among Singaporeans about taking control of their financial freedom and that it is possible to do so. One needs the right tools and support that the brand believes it can offer. It is a multi-platform campaign that will be implemented across radio, television, OOH, and other digital channels. The campaign will be launched via a musical featurette, which includes a jingle composed by Xiao’an Li, a renowned commercial composer from audio production house Li & Ortega. It features Mediacorp Class 95 DJ and singer John Klass. As part of the campaign, Singlife will also be revamping its website in August.
