Highlighting the importance of ethical conduct, Atty. Serrano drew parallels from Bible stories. “An insurance agent can defeat any temptation of fraud or trial in the conduct of his profession by holding fast to the company policy. There is no need for any superpower. He or she just has to hold fast, follow the company guidelines,” Atty. Serrano asserted.
