The future of insurance is “small”

Bron: Pascal Coppens - 04 november 2020

In October 2013, the first online-only insurance company was launched in China. It was called Zhong An (????). Normally, nobody would have noticed or cared for it, were it not for the fact that the three backers of this startup were the most powerful tech founders in China: Jack Ma of Alibaba Group - the biggest marketplace in China; Pony Ma of Tencent - the largest social network of China; and Peter Ma from Ping An - the largest insurance company in the world. These three tycoons who share the same surname Ma – which means horse in Chinese – changed the world of insurance forever that day.

The real question we need to ask ourselves is why these three Chinese technology giants who never invested together before, who each of them have insurance products to offer, and who are the fiercest competitors amongst themselves, would invest in a startup that nobody ever heard about to even become their potential competitor over time? The answer is simple: Inclusion. There is safety in small.

ZhongAn was included in most of China’s tech ecosystems, leveraging each of them. ZhongAn could offer all-inclusive micro-insurance policies as part of online purchases. ZhongAn became inclusive in purpose by addressing the long-tail market: the unserved, underserved, vulnerable and cash-strapped population.
