While the term fintech may carry different meanings, it is now commonly considered to cover the application of artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud computing, and big data in areas such as payments, clearing and settlement, deposits, lending and capital raising, insurance, investment management, and market support. In light of the rapid technological advancement, it is important to understand the benefits and risks brought by fintech, and to support its healthy development.

The IA is also responsible for promoting and encouraging proper standards of conduct of insurance intermediaries, and has regulatory power in relation to licensing, inspection, investigation, and disciplinary sanctions. Insurtech The IA is committed to building a regulatory environment conducive to the use of new technologies in the insurance sector (“Insurtech”). Being technology-neutral, we do not set any barrier for the insurance industry to apply Insurtech, and strive to ensure that the application of Insurtech would not compromise the protection of policy holders and tilt a level playing field.
