China InsureTech

During InsureTech Connect 2016, Oliver Wyman launched a joint report with ZhongAn, China’s first online-only insurer, about the opportunities in the Chinese InsureTech market.

In China, an underdeveloped insurance market enjoying double-digit growth, the disruptions triggered by InsureTech are causing an insurance industry revolution. One reason for the impact is the fast adoption and heavy use of online ecosystems by the Chinese. In addition, InsureTech is underpinned by a regulatory environment supportive of innovation.

The result has been a surge in new InsureTech players creating disruptive products, services, and business models. Some of these are integrating insurance products into online ecosystems and fostering groundbreaking innovations.
