I have to admit that the bancassurance channel that once relied heavily on insurance companies has been out of sight, and the “banking” life insurance company, which is backed by the big tree of banks, has become more and more obvious.
According to the insurance industry data for the whole year, except for the scale premiums of the two companies of BOC Life Insurance and Sino-Dutch Life Insurance, which are less than 10 billion yuan, the insurance premiums of the other 7 banking insurance companies have exceeded 10 billion yuan.

Earlier, a number of insiders analyzed the "International Finance News" reporters, "banking" insurance companies in the bancassurance channel itself has an "innate" advantage over the general insurance company. Before obtaining an insurance license, the bank has an insurance agent channel to sell products of different insurance companies. For the sake of profit, the powerful banks will put their own insurance company's products into their own bancassurance channels for sales through the participation of insurance companies, and customers choose the bancassurance channel.Insurance ProductsAt the time, due to the trust in the bank, it is naturally more inclined to "banking."
According to the above-mentioned industry insiders, the bancassurance channel generally prefers the sales process to be relatively simple and time-saving.Financial managementType insurance products, but as the China Insurance Regulatory Commission strictly regulates the short-term insurance business, as the home sales of short-term wealth management insurance products, the bancassurance channel has contracted, mainly through the “bank system” insurance companies that sell insurance through shareholder banks. Therefore, it is affected.
In their view, the top priority for the “Banking” life insurance company is to adjust the business structure in a timely manner, expand sales channels, and always adhere to the “insurance surname” position to ease the uncertainty in the operation.
