China insurance began to expand from 2004. By Dec. 15th 2007, 8 insurance groups and 105 insurance companies (including 62 Chinese companies, 43 foreign companies, and 2300 insurance agencies) have come into being in China. Basically, a complete insurance market system with reasonable assignment and fair competition and mutual development has formed.

Currently, the competition on China insurance market still takes the low end. As China insurance industry is on the initial stage, competition is not fully initiated. The market potential has not been exploited fully and the industry needs further integration. After fund companies and the finance and leasing companies were open, State Department issued the policy on Jan. 17th 2008, which permitted the bank to hold the shares of insurance company. The mixed operation began to prevail among the financial industry and each insurance company was busy making preparations for this operation. By 2007, ten foreign insurance companies have gotten the ratification to transfer into an independent legal entity that would facilitate the expansion of operation network.



There are two main modes to merger. The first mode is taken place in insurance industry, usually between the life and the non-life insurance companies, between the reinsurance and the direct insurance, between the reinsurance companies. The second form of merger usually happen in the financial field, including banks, securities, insurance, and trust, especially the merger between the insurance company and the asset management company. In addition, the foreign capital is rather interested on China insurance agency market which is just in its infancy. On Oct. 31st 2007, Cninsure Inc. landed on NASDAQ as the first national insurance agency.

Rural financial upgrade is an important direction to develop finance in China. China Life Insurance Company is one of the biggest beneficiaries. It is expected that the preferential policy on the tax of the personal endowment insurance will be issued. China is a developing country with the population of 1.3 billion; the lack of the endowment and the medical insurance becomes more and more obvious; the insurance industry itself does not keep a balance on its structural and regional development. All of these realities determine that the rural financial upgrade has great potential and high investment value.
