Along the way, Charo has shaped a legacy built upon the values she holds dear. "I place a high value on prefessionalism and excellence. But at the same time, I also believe in the importance of having a nurturing heart. More than all the accolades and tangible successes I've had in the industry, it is the legacy of these values that I wish to impart to other people," Charo said.


Just as it is in her career, Charo also cherishes the real treasures in her life : her family.

"SUN Smarter Life makes wealth preservation easy. It also gives me peace of mind knowing that when my time comes, my assets will efficiently be transferred to my family," Charo said. "By preparing early, utilizing the right instruments, and with the help of Sun Life, I am confident that my family will feel my love through the legacy i will leave behind."
