Thenew month of May 2015 came with the worst news for China’sinsurance companies. A constitutional amendment stipulated that itwas compulsory for all insurance companies to offer cover on naturalcalamities. Every year around June marks the onset of a five monthslong typhoon season in North East Asia. This would almost immediatelymore than double the number of clients seeking insurance cover at allour branches countrywide.
Havingbeen a worker in Ping, An Insurance Group, for about two years, wasmy biggest challenge. On one hand, the investors were worried aboutthe anticipated losses by the company for covering this highlycertain risks, while on the other hand the government had laid outthe law and was strict to see it obeyed. If I disobeyed thegovernment’s directive, the company’s license would be forfeited,and I was at the risk of a jail term exceeding five years. If Iobeyed the government’s directive, the company would have to layoff some workers or risk going bankrupt.
BeingChina’s biggest insurance company came in as a disadvantage for thefirst time. The bigger the company meant more clients seeking coveragainst these highly certain risks. I called in an emergency meetingof all stakeholders where an unforeseen solution was born. A commonbody was formed whose mandate was to come up with safety requirementsthat a property owner had to meet to qualify for an insurance coverand also to educate the public on safety measures to take to avoidthe loss of life and the destruction of property during the typhoonseason. This not only lowered the certainty of these risks occurringbut also reversed our fate. The insurance clientele grew tremendouslyin all the insurance companies.
