China Set To Open Doors To Reinsurers

820 words - 3 pages

China Re about to lose monopoly status as government moves to grant licenses to Munich Re and Swiss Re with others lined up to enter this huge marketEntry into the Chinese reinsurance market has not been easy, given the dominance of the Beijing-based China Reinsurance Company, which is the only reinsurer directly controlled by the State Council, hence a government monopoly.But China Re is about to lose its monopoly status, with the government's recent move to grant licenses to Munich Re and Swiss Re, while other foreign reinsurers are waiting in the wings to enter the China marketplace.Market sources indicated that foreign reinsurers exploring business possibilities in China include GE Reinsurance, Chubb Re and Gerling Global Re.
