9781118323175: Life Insurance in Asia: Sustaining Growth in the Next Decade

An incisive look at the war for market share in the Asian life insurance market

Although the life insurance industry in Asia has emerged from the financial crisis stronger than ever, it has not escaped unchanged. As the general focus of insurance companies across the continent moves towards profitability beyond growth, tightening regulatory measures, shifts in consumer preferences, and risk tolerance, battle lines have been drawn between local incumbents, attackers, and foreign players. Life Insurance in Asia: Winning in the Next Decade, Second Edition looks at the ways in which small local agencies and multinational companies alike are seizing control of as much of the market as they can by aggressively recruiting new agents, leveraging new channels, and selling new products to cash in on the explosive Asian markets.

Thoroughly revised and updated, this new edition offers a comprehensive introduction to the booming Asian life insurance markets and outlines exactly what it takes to capture the opportunities that are emerging. Drawing on the research and experience of the McKinsey Asia financial services team, it includes everything you need to know about the battle for the life insurance market in Asia.

  • Looks at how China and India are becoming increasingly important players on the international life insurance scene
  • Goes behind the scenes of the Asian life insurance industry and the contentious battle for market share
  • Outlines the steps to successfully entering, and prospering, in the Asian market

The life insurance industry in Asia is changing like never before. What the future holds, no one knows, but with Life Insurance in Asia in hand, you'll have a clear idea of the factions in play and the rules of the game.

From the Inside Flap:

Since the first edition of Life Insurance in Asia was published, the global life insurance industry has faced unprecedented challenges—from extremely low interest rates and highly volatile capital markets to a flood of new regulations. While Asia has fared well in this environment, it has not been immune to these events, and will be faced with a set of issues very different from those seen in the last decade.

Nobody understands this better than authors Stephan Binder and Joe Ngai. With the second edition of Life Insurance in Asia, they draw on their experience from working with leading life insurance companies in the region to provide a fresh look at the dynamic Asian life insurance market and how it may develop over the next several years.

Fully updated to reflect today's business conditions, this reliable resource offers valuable insights on what it will take to adapt to a new industry paradigm—shifting from a strong growth focus to a more value-oriented approach—and reveals how firms, from multinational insurers to local players, will have to operate in order to be more effective in the region. Along the way, it touches on timely topics that will help readers prepare for this new reality, including revisiting distribution models; exploring potential opportunities from new technologies and innovation; strengthening invest-ment management capabilities to address challenges in more volatile market environments; and adjusting product portfolios to cater to specific customer segments.

While Life Insurance in Asia, Second Edition is not intended to be a comprehensive country-by- country analysis, deep dives into specific markets—from China, India, and Japan to South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore—are performed to reveal the differences and nuances of each, and put you in a better position to excel within them.

Written by practitioners with a wealth of experience in the Asian life insurance sector, this new edition provides readers with a practical perspective on the inner workings of the industry and key challenges for market players. With the information found here, you'll discover what it will take to capture the opportunities that are emerging in this competitive arena.
