7 STUDY BACKGROUND AIA SURVEY ON MIDDLE CLASS HOPES AND ASPIRATIONS INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY As the leading pan-asian life insurance group, AIA created the AIA Survey on Middle Class Hopes and Aspirations to gain additional insights about the middle class and their priorities to strengthen our understanding of the middle class in the Asia-Pacific region. The inaugural survey conducted in 2013 covered the Greater China markets of mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. In 2014, the survey focused on six Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) markets: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The study provides an in-depth look at the fast-growing middle class group across four key areas, namely quality of life, financial security, retirement, and family and education. The survey sheds light on how the middle class perceives their lives, family and values, financial well-being and their career and retirement. It is clear that personal circumstance, culture, and the level of economic development in the market where respondents are living, are key drivers that greatly shape the hopes and aspirations of the middle class across the region. SURVEY METHODOLOGY This report specifically highlights the survey findings for the Philippines, which were collected through 500 interviews conducted between 10 July and 12 August 2014, with people in the Philippines who identified themselves as middle class (the same methodology was adopted across all surveyed ASEAN markets): 400 online interviews were conducted with people from the Philippines aged The respondants are individuals who previously indicated willingness to participate in online surveys and who identified themselves as middle class. To improve representativeness, an additional 100 face-to-face interviews were conducted with people in the Philippines aged 50 and older The sample was evenly split between men and women The margin of error for the study is within +/-4.4% The study was conducted by Ipsos, a leading global market research agency REPORT PHILIPPINES 7

12 QUALITY OF LIFE AIA Middle Class Index (MCI) The Philippines middle class has positive expectations about their future AIA Middle Class Index Scores above 50 indicate an expectation of improvement for each aspect of life The Philippines middle class is highly likely to think their life situations will improve over the next 12 months, as shown by the AIA Middle Class Index* (MCI) score of 70.6 (where 50 represents an equal balance of expectations for improvement and for worsening ). Middle class Filipinos are particularly positive about an improved family life, health and career prospects. Almost two-thirds (64%) say that the population of the Philippines middle class will grow over the next 10 years. Compared to the other ASEAN markets surveyed, this is one of the lowest percentages of respondents who hold this view. Only those in Malaysia were less likely to think the number of middle class will grow over the next 10 years (56%). *The AIA Middle Class Index is a summary score for whether respondents think aspects of their life will improve or worsen over the next 12 months. An index above 50 indicates they expect their life will improve and an index below 50 indicate they expect their life to worsen. The index is calculated by the formula (P1*1) + (P2*0.5) + (P3*0), where P1 is the percentage who say that their situation will improve, P2 is the percentage who say it would stay the same and P3 is the percentage who say it will worsen.
