Bowtie收获香港首个互联网保险牌照

本周,香港保险科技创企Bowtie宣布获得香港保险业监管局经由快速通道试点项目颁发的首个虚拟保险公司牌照。

Bowtie由Ngan和其他联合首席执行官兼联合创始人Michael Chan共同创立。两人此前都曾在美国担任过全球咨询公司的精算师,同时也曾先后创立过两家成功的保险科技创企。

Bowtie总部位于香港,但是其初创与管理团队却同时有来自香港和硅谷两地。

此前,Bowtie曾在A轮融资中获得永明金融(香港)有限公司总额2.34亿港元(约合3000万美元)的投资。此外,香港X科技基金和多位天使投资人也拥有Bowtie的股权。

Bowtie是一个去中介化的在线平台,可以直接向客户提供保险产品。

待香港食品卫生局批准后,香港消费者有望在2019年上半年自愿健康保险计划(VHIS)开始接受客户申请时,在Bowtie的数字分销平台上看到健康保险产品。

 

Bowtie Life Insurance Company Limited (Bowtie) today announces that it has been granted the very first virtual insurance company license by Hong Kong's Insurance Authority under its Fast Track pilot scheme. As a home-grown insurtech and now a fully-licensed virtual insurance company, Bowtie is set to offer insurance protection directly to customers, without any insurance intermediaries.

Bowtie is backed with HK$234 million (US$ 30 million) raised in its Series A round from Sun Life Hong Kong Limited and has a shareholder base that includes Hong Kong X Technology Fund and angel investors.

Ngan and fellow Co-CEO and Co-founder Michael Chan are serial entrepreneurs who grew up in Hong Kong. They first met in the United States where they worked as actuaries in global advisory firms. After returning to Hong Kong, this duo have already built two successful insurtech start-ups in a few short years prior to founding Bowtie.

Bowtie has been garnering engineering talent from local and Silicon Valley technology start-ups, as well as industry leaders including former C-suite executives from major insurance companies. The team is 100% based in Hong Kong and comprises actuaries, engineers, designers, a strong service team and even a medical doctor.

Pending Food and Health Bureau's approval, Hong Kong consumers can expect to see health insurance products on Bowtie's digital distribution platform during the first half of 2019 when the Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme (VHIS) begins accepting customer applications.
