进军保险业?亚马逊又有新举动

去年10月,我们曾向大家介绍了亚马逊进军保险业的计划此前,亚马逊只是在为可能进行的欧洲市场保险业务招兵买马,而现在似乎是要在投资合作方面有所行动了。

最近有媒体报道称,亚马逊很可能会对印度在线保险创企Acko General Insurance进行投资,预计投资额接近100亿卢比(约合1160万英镑)

据了解,Acko General Insurance此前一直在同时与亚马逊公司和印度电商巨头Flipkart进行接洽。不过目前来看,亚马逊的胜算更大一些。

如果投资顺利,亚马逊未来将与Acko General Insurance共同开发金融产品,同时通过后者平台进行销售。

虽然这次投资计划远离亚马逊本土市场,但是至少再一次印证了亚马逊进军保险市场的可能性。

It was in October last year that we first told you about Amazon’s plans to enter the insurance industry as it lined up staff for its European business. Now, it appears to be making further overtures towards the sector.

If reports are to be believed in India, then Amazon is likely to launch an investment in Acko General Insurance soon.

According to The Times of India, Amazon is looking at pouring cash into the online-only insurance start-up – investing close to Rs 100 crore (around £11.6 million) and developing financial products alongside the insurer. It suggests that Amazon is the second company that Acko had been in talks with – a previous discussion with Flipkart did not lead to any result.

“They were engaged with both Amazon and Flipkart for the past few months for an investment. But with Amazon putting in a term sheet, the deal is likely to close soon with them,” a source was quoted as telling the publication.

When the deal is complete it is expected that Amazon will begin sales of its own financial products through its website – and while events in India may appear far from home, it may be yet another sign that the retailer is on its way into the industry.
