PICC Property and Casualty Company Limited (PICC), with a 33.5% market share and premium income of CNY 310.45billion (about USD 46.83 billion), is the oldest and largest non-life insurance company in mainland China and provides all varieties of general insurances including motor vehicle, hull and cargo, commercial and homeowner’s property, liability, credit and surety, aviation and space insurance.
PICC started to underwrite export credit insurance on behalf of the central government in 1988. In 2001, its export credit business became independent to form Chinese Export and Credit Insurance Company (Sinosure). In 2005, PICC decided to return to the credit insurance market while the surety/bond businesses have been on its product shelf for the past decades. Starting from January 1 2013, PICC is licensed by Chinese Ministry of Finance to underwrite short term export credit insurance, becoming the first and so far the only commercial insurer to do business in the export credit market.
We have 4500 branch offices all over China. Being the People’s insurance company, PICC aim to serve the people’s interests first and foremost.
In 1949 the People’s Insurance Company of China (PICC) was founded as the first and only insurance company in P. R. China. In 1996 the People’s Insurance (Group) Company of China (PICC Group) was established, PICC Property being one of the Group’s three main subsidiaries. PICC Group was disbanded to nurture more competition in the market and all its subsidiaries became independent in 1999. While the other two subsidiaries changed their names to become China Life, China Re, PICC Property Insurance Company inherited the time honored name PICC. In 2003 PICC was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, being the first Chinese state-owned financial enterprise to go public overseas.
