Hong Kong serves as the regional headquarters for many global insurance groups and multinational brokerage firms, and is a key market in its own right.
Our team is well versed in advising insurance companies on both corporate finance transactions and M&A transactions, and on the ever-evolving insurance regulatory regimes throughout Asia Pacific.
While traditional insurers still dominate the market, InsurTech has rapidly developed in Hong Kong due to the Insurance Authority introducing the Fast Track Scheme for digital-only insurance providers and the InsurTech sandbox. This has fueled growth in Hong Kong's InsurTech market.
In addition, warranty and indemnity (W&I) insurance has developed rapidly in Asia over the last decade, and an increasing number of insurers are competing to offer W&I coverage. Our Hong Kong team has advised most of these insurers across dozens of deals involving most jurisdictions in the region, and is a market leader in this growing field.
