The continued pace of economic and social development experienced over the past decades throughout China has equally been reflected in the steady growth and development of China’s insurance sector. Domestic insurers have risen to the challenge to develop expertise, product coverage and distribution processes that in many respects represent leading practices from across the globe, and are now increasingly looking for both investment and expansion opportunities across the globe. Although the domestic insurance industry, if measured by standards such as insurance density or insurance penetration rate, would appear under-developed, almost all global commentators would agree that that the Chinese insurance has huge growth and expansion potential.
