Overview

The past two years have seen steady growth in the Asian insurance sector, spurred by a combination of climbing incomes, demographic factors and strong potential in emerging markets, especially India and China. Indeed, European and US insurers are looking at Asia with fresh enthusiasm since China announced plans to allow more access to its insurance markets. Overall, the non-life insurance sector has been livelier than its life insurance counterpart. Health insurance in particular has been robust, but other newer forms of insurance, such as cyber insurance, also have been carving out a market for themselves.

But the winds that buffeted insurers earlier, may continue to trouble them today and in the months to come. A global economic slowdown is a major worry, as is the likely fallout from an ongoing US-China trade dispute that could be sobering for the region. Regulatory oversight has checked some of the worst excesses of the insurance business, and steered the industry onto a more stable path. But has this supervision been too broadly applied to be truly effective, or has it been too strict, thereby stifling entrepreneurship and innovation? 

How can insurers chart the best course? Cost management is one way; it involves driving operational efficiencies and altering distribution channels. Digitalisation is another powerful tool; it enables insurers to adapt to changing customer behaviour, cut operational costs and improve productivity. Disruptive innovation is energising traditional business models, products and services, and modernising the business and management of insurance in Asia.

FT Asia Insurance Summit:Charting a course for growth will take a clear-eyed look at the best way forward for an evolving insurance industry. Now in its sixth year, the summit will gather together leading insurers, regulators, asset managers and technology experts from Asia to evaluate whether the region’s insurers and investors are ready for the opportunity and the challenge ahead.

    Dialogue: The investment perspective

    Asia is an attractive investment destination, and remains the world’s largest recipient of foreign direct investment inflows. But several major factors are clouding the investment climate in Asia: the ongoing US-China trade dispute, financial-market volatility and slowing regional economic growth, among others. To ensure consistent value, however, insurers and investors should take a long-term view of investment. What are some of the strategic approaches they could adopt?

  • 10:00am
    Panel discussion: Going digital

    Technology is starting to disrupt the traditional and highly regulated insurance industry. Quickly capitalising on data and artificial intelligence for distribution and marketing, insurers have gained valuable insights into their customer base, and into management of their products, processes and pricing. Data analytics also has helped in risk evaluation of potential policy-holders, or in identifying bogus claims. But can insurers ramp up their embrace of technology to generate a truly digitally-driven business model that breaks the traditional mould? Are enough insurers hearing the knock on the door? Are insurers planning ahead for the risks that go with greater digitalisation? For the moment, how can they best use data to add value to their business?

    Panel discussion: Insurtech start-ups rattle value chain

    Although Asia’s insurtech ecosystem is still at a formative stage, the emergence of start-ups is rattling the traditional insurance value chain. The region’s insurtech evolution is at its most disruptive in Singapore, Hong Kong and China. In the latter market, the technology giants are driving this dynamic change, investing in both start-ups and established insurers. Are other investors following suit? Should large traditional insurers be worried? Insurtech start-ups in most key markets are under a benign official eye, but will the regulatory stance harden after they grow bigger? Are the start-ups truly a positive disruption in the region’s insurance sector? What are their main challenges? How are they addressing the risks to cyber security?

    Harprem Doowa, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, E-Direct

  • 11:40am
    Insurance focus: IFRS 17—going beyond compliance

    The implementation of International Financial Reporting Standards IFRS 17 has been delayed by one year to 1 January 2022. IFRS 17 is set to replace IFRS 4 on accounting for insurance contracts. What will implementation mean for insurers in Asia? How can they apply IFRS 17 in tandem with business strategies in order to mine value from regulatory acquiescence?

  • 12:00pm
    Investment focus: Riding the ESG wave?

    Alive to the need for responsible business practices, both insurers and investors are beginning to use environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards to determine where to put their money. The aim is to ensure that they avoid—or at least adequately manage—the effects of unfavourable ESG conditions in investment targets. To what extent can ESG standards take investment beyond the ethical to the practical? Is this so-called sustainable investing the wave of the future? How popular is it in Asia? Which of the three components is the most easily applicable in the region?

  • 12:20pm
    Panel discussion: Identifying, addressing and mitigating investment risk

    Insurers are having to recalibrate their strategies on asset liability management in the face of trade and political turbulence, disruptive digitalisation, and regulatory demands for greater compliance. How can they best adjust to the new forms of risk, especially now that risk management increasingly involves data measurement? How are regulatory legislation and capital requirements influencing their decisions on asset allocation? To what extent has portfolio risk increased?

    Life insurance: Top 5 strategies for growth

    Like overall global growth in life insurance, growth in this sector in Asia has been slight. Besides shifting demographics, the challenges for life insurers in the region are mostly regulatory and logistical. Yet Asia offers strong potential in its emerging markets, albeit less in its developed markets. To tap that potential, life insurers must look to readjusting their business models and their strategies for growth. Should they entrench digitalisation more deeply into their distribution and marketing channels, and in acquisition planning? How best should they cut costs? Can digitalisation assist? How can they leverage regulatory compliance to enhance their business dynamics?

  • 2:50pm
    Viewpoint: Investing for the future

    Investment-focused insurance plans abound. Finding the right plan is another matter, as opinions often are divided on the worth to its buyer of a particular insurance-based investment product or service. Is there a market in Asia for innovative products such as unit-linked life insurance, hybrid life insurance and variable annuities, or do customers prefer traditional products? Is regulatory oversight sufficient on insurance-based investment, especially in emerging markets?

  • 3:10pm
    Trending: Cyberinsurance—small, but necessary, market

    Still relatively small and amorphous, the market for cyber insurance in Asia is expected to develop as companies become more digitalised. Greater use of technologies is likely to increase the risks to cyber security, although better awareness and stronger legislation should weaken that threat. Cyber insurance is the safety net, should a breach occur. For insurers, this is a new opportunity. What are their cyber offerings to customers? Who are they targeting?  Are governments providing regulatory support in terms of legislation? What defines Asia’s cyber insurance ecosystem?

    Trending: Health insurance—flexing its muscle

    Asia’s ageing population, longer life expectancy and surging incidence of non-communicable diseases have compelled several governments to legislate national health insurance systems for their citizens. But these systems are largely inadequate, and private health insurance is often the best option available, acquired either through an employer or on an individual basis. Despite being expensive, private health insurance has soared in demand. To what extent has this translated into better quality healthcare? Where are the gaps in coverage? What are the regulatory challenges that confront private health insurers in Asia? How viable is an expensive health insurance ecosystem in the long run?

    Koh Yi Mien, Managing Director, Health and Employee Benefits, AXA Hong Kong

  • 4:30pm
    China has the last word

    Positive government policies, brisk economic growth and rising incomes have made China the world’s fastest-growing insurance market. Although a slowing economy, swelling global debt and trade friction with the US are concerns, the country’s insurance market has room to expand, and the government is introducing policies and oversight to foster a healthy insurance environment. Moreover, digitally astute Chinese insurers are making it difficult for their foreign counterparts to wedge their way deeper into the domestic market. Large Chinese insurers dominate both the general and life insurance sectors at home. Is this dynamic development sustainable? How is China’s insurance industry coping with regulatory and policy changes, greater risks to cyber security, and increasingly discerning customers?
