2018 Digital Insurance in China Review
Editorial by Hugh Terry
This month we take a look back at the major developments of 2018 and select the most progressive InsurTechs that have emerged from China. Although the past year was characterised by continued optimism with regard to digital insurance, several notable regulatory actions and a more cautious VC approach have signaled that the honeymoon is over and only those with sustainable business models will be able to succeed in the long term. Additionally, we speak to RGAX’s Asia managing director, Leo Wong, about how he views the development of digital insurance in China. RGAX is the global business innovation accelerator of Reinsurance Group of America (RGA). Based in Shanghai and Hong Kong, Leo leads a team that invests in, incubates, and grows new insurance industry-focused ventures in machine learning, life sciences, InsurTech, and data analytics.
