AIA Group Limited and its subsidiaries (collectively “AIA” or the “Group”) comprise the largest independent publicly listed pan-Asian life insurance group.
The business that is now AIA was first established in Shanghai more than a century ago in 1919. It is a market leader in Asia (ex-Japan) based on life insurance premiums and holds leading positions across the majority of its markets. It had total assets of US$326 billion as of 31 December 2020.
AIA meets the long-term savings and protection needs of individuals by offering a range of products and services including life insurance, accident and health insurance and savings plans. The Group also provides employee benefits, credit life and pension services to corporate clients. Through an extensive network of agents, partners and employees across Asia, AIA serves the holders of more than 38 million individual policies and over 16 million participating members of group insurance schemes.
Joining the UN Environment’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative will allow AIA to be a part of a global insurer community that champions and operationalizes ESG in business. Through this network, AIA can further exercise ESG risk management, and amplify the impact we make through partnering with our peers. This will allow AIA to drive impact in the health and wellness landscape with our Purpose to build shared value in communities in Asia.
