The Insurance Authority recently released statistics on the market performance of the Hong Kong insurance industry for the first half of 2018.

Also, FTLife maintained its high market position in both IFA channel and agency channel as measured by new business APE.

FTLife CEO Gerard Yang commented: "FTLife's strong growth momentum continues into the first half of this year. The company's flagship products "Regent Insurance Plan 2" and "HealthCare 168" remain as market leaders, driving strong growth in New Business Value. The "Regent Insurance" series accounted for more than 60% of sales in APE and received a warm welcome from customers. FTLife's remarkable results were driven by the sales in APE of the IFA channel which grew year-on-year by over 200%; while the agency channel achieved growth of over 30%."

Gerard Yang added: "We are currently developing new front and back office applications based on the needs of customers, agents and distribution channels. By improving our technological capabilities, we will create a platform that will facilitate our teams in customer services and marketing, in addition to the increased operational efficiency. These developments will bring even better customer experience and help create growth and value for FTLife."

FTLife also recorded a 47% increase of profit-after-tax over the same period, reflecting the enhanced investment return and cost efficiency in business operation. Also, the Solvency Ratio remained above 500%, exceeding the regulatory requirement.

FTLife Chairman Fang Lin said: "FTLife's trusting relationship with our customers and workforce is the basis of our business growth. We will continue to improve our products, business operations, services and information technology systems to provide even better and caring customer experience. Our strong solvency ratio indicates our robust financial strength to deliver what we promise to our clients. Our well-structured training and development systems will offer staff and sales force a platform to boost their personal growth and career development."

Fang Lin continued: "To rise on the rapid development of our business, we will move into FTLife Tower in Kowloon Bay in October this year. The all-new FTLife Tower is an important milestone in our business development. The new office is designed with such concepts as 'harmony', 'openness' and 'collaboration' in mind. With the use of advanced technologies, FTLife Tower will be an even better place for our employees and agents to work and collaborate. Adhering to our principles of business integrity and customer-first, FTLife strives to bring our core values of 'positivity', 'enthusiasm', 'responsiveness', 'innovation', 'practical' and 'cooperation' in everything we do. We aspire to become a world-class, customer-centric insurance company that achieves long-term growth."
