Regulatory Updates

  • Regulator highlights requirements for high-quality development
    On September 3, at the 2022 Chinese Insurance High-quality Development Forum, XIAO Yuanqi, vice-chairman of CBIRC made remarks on how insurance companies can achieve high-quality development. First, he calls for satisfying the real needs of customers on the side of liabilities and persisting in prudent operation on the side of assets. “Meeting customer demand” does not mean sales push or raising commissions. Second, insurance companies should stay focused on the core business of insurance, and the extension along the value chain shall serve the sole purpose of “supporting the core insurance business”. Third, he advocates “craftsmanship”, i.e., steadfast efforts in customer needs analysis, product development, actuarial pricing, investment management and claims service, since insurance is a highly specialised industry and many life/health insurance products are long term, requiring sophisticated designing and calculation. Fourth is market segmentation and specialisation. Fifth is cultivation of a responsible and trust-worthy corporate culture, being responsible for the society, consumers and the future.
  • CBIRC enhances information disclosure of life/health insurance

products

In early August, CBIRC issued the Exposure Draft of Administrative Regulations on Information Disclosure of Life/health Insurance Products for public comments. Insurance companies shall bear the primary responsibility of information disclosure of insurance products, such as product terms and clauses, premium rates, cash value and other information pertaining to consumer interests, so as to meet the needs of insurance applicants, the insured, insurance beneficiaries and the wider public. The document designates China Insurance Association and China Banking and Insurance Information Technology Company as the official platforms for such information disclosure.

the summary of the Q & A session.

1.Q: China’s insurance market is now undergoing profound transformation. What is management view on the medium- and long-term outlook for the sector? What strategies do you have? How do you plan to foster new growth engines?

  1. Indeed, in recent years, China’s insurance market has experienced profound transformation and entered a new stage of development, marked by changing gears in both premium and value growth. The days of double digits or even higher growth are gone, and now steady growth is the norm. Industry is vigorously exploring paths of transformation. There are mainly 3 challenges facing the industry.
    First, some of the systemic problems accumulated during the high-growth period began to surface. While massive recruiting and heavy spending on incentives fuelled rapid business growth, they also triggered a series of issues, such as false manpower, a high proportion of “self-insured policies” which compromised business quality, and surrender racketeering which erodes the foundation of customer trust. All these problems need to be resolved prudently.
    Second, it takes time to cultivate new growth drivers. The restructuring of life insurance agency force is gaining traction, but improvement in professionalism and career-based development cannot be achieved overnight, as they require steadfast capacity-building in recruitment, training and an enabling culture. In P/C insurance, in the context of auto insurance reform, the profitability of traditional business lines was under pressure. Besides, the launch of specialised terms and clauses for NEV, and innovation in non-auto insurance could be challenges to business quality, since it takes time to understand the risks and accumulate data. Global warming and higher risk of natural catastrophes may severely impact the underwriting profitability of P/C insurers.
    Third, external shocks are increasing. With economic slow-down, loosening of monetary policy, decline of long-term interest rates and capital market volatility, we are facing more pressure in reinvestment, which, coupled with rising credit risk, could be a constraint for insurance business. Moreover, new regulatory rules such as Administrative Provisions on Supervision of Insurance Groups and C-ROSS II require better risk management of insurance companies.
    That being said, the fundamentals of China’s economy remain unchanged. As a matter of fact, the unique value proposition of insurance will figure more prominently in an environment of increasing uncertainty, such as providing risk protection, supporting economic growth and promoting social stability. For example, the pandemic considerably raised public awareness of health insurance and services; the volatility of equity market makes savings-type insurance products more popular. In the long term, demographic shift and accumulation of people’s wealth can effectively underpin insurance demand. National strategies seeking to meet people’s need for a better life, such as

Healthy China, Green Transitioning and integrated development initiatives of key regions will inject new vitality into China’s insurance market. According to reports by authoritative market research outfits, China’s protection gap is still huge in medical cost reimbursement, critical illness income compensation, as well as wealth management and retirement products and services, which means there is still big potential in China’s insurance penetration and density.

In short, customer demand remains intact; it’s only that insurance companies need to improve their supply to match changing customer needs. In the face of a changing environment, CPIC took the initiative and initiated the supply-side reform to drive for a shift towards the customer-centric operational model.

We launched the Changhang Transformation on the life insurance side seeking to restructure the agency force and meet customer needs in health & protection, pension and wealth management. Meanwhile, we accelerated deployment in health care and retirement, extended the insurance value chain, innovated health solutions and rolled out retirement communities, so as to diversify our product and service offerings. Our P/C insurance focuses on systematic capacity-building while seizing opportunities in emerging business like NEV auto insurance, sustainable insurance and agricultural insurance. In asset management, we strive to optimise ALM mechanism, and enhance capabilities in asset allocation across economic cycles, in a bid to better support liabilities.

2.Q: Could management give us an update of your deployment in health care and retirement? What is your competitive edge on this front when compared with banks or other insurance companies? What is your plan for next stage?

  1. Overall, we are making good progress in elderly care. In the wake of the opening of facilities in Chengdu and Dali at the end of last year, the community in Hangzhou also opened for business in July, marking the formation of chain-based and nationwide operation. In terms of business trends, the community in Dali seized opportunities of the high season for tourism, with the occupancy rate trending up. In terms of operation, customer satisfaction rate exceeded 80%, and we are working on the formulation and improvement of operational standards. As for synergy with the core business of insurance, in the first half of 2022, we received a total of around 40,000 visits, and issued more than 2,700 certificates of admission. Next, we will focus on two things: one is operation and service, diversifying offerings and enhancing standards to further improve customer satisfaction; another priority is the building of professional, chain-based operational management capabilities so as to expand into light-asset business.
    Our competitive edge in elderly care mainly includes: first, we offer long-term pension insurance with stable yields; second, we have been profoundly involved in all the 3 pillars of the pension system; third, and most
