China's Union Life Insurance is planning to sell a controlling stake that could be snapped up by locals or foreigners looking to tap into the country's growing demand for insurance products, three people familiar with the matter told Reuters. A majority sale to an offshore company would mark a rare purchase of a financial services firm in China by a foreigner, indicating Beijing's push to ease ownership rules and attract investors to the world's No.3 insurance market were paying off. Union Life, expected to be valued at $1.5 billion to $2 billion, plans to sell as much as 51 percent, with an option to raise that to 100 percent later, the people said, declining to be named as the details are not public yet.
Hong Kong has awarded Bowtie Life Insurance, a company backed by Sun Life Financial's Hong Kong unit, the first online-only insurance licence under the city's "fast-track" scheme. Bowtie Life Insurance, which is also supported by Sequoia Capital managing partner Neil Shen's Hong Kong X Technology Fund, will offer life insurance directly to consumers rather than selling through intermediaries such as agents or banks, as is common in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is home to a developed life insurance market, with a life and health insurance premium to GDP ratio of 17.94 percent in 2017, the second-highest in Asia after Taiwan, according to insurer Swiss Re.
Hong Kong is set to license its first online-only insurer under a "fast-track" system next month, the regulatory head said, as it fights off criticism for being slower to make use of new technology than other parts of the financial services world. The online platform will operate in a market worth more than $63 billion in insurance premiums, and will compete with players such as AIA Group and the local units of Prudential Plc and Sun Life Financial Inc. The move comes as Hong Kong is pushing a number of financial technology or "fintech" initiatives in an effort to compete better with rival centres in Singapore and London to reel in more investment.
