About Asia Insurance Review

Asia Insurance Review was launched in January 1991 to meet the information needs of insurance practitioners in Asia in particular and the rest of the world in general. It quickly became the premier and comprehensive professional regional magazine, read by all the key decision makers and readers in the insurance industry in Asia from Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, etc.

As part of our growth process, and in response to the demands of readers, we went into organising insurance-related conferences to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and expertise to the region. Very quickly Asia Insurance Review's technical conferences became an integral service to Asia's insurance industry.

We launched the Asia Insurance Industry Awards to recognise and salute excellence in the insurance industry since 1997. We also launched the Australia and New Zealand Insurance Industry Awards in 2004. These are our conscious attempts to promote the industry's move towards higher standards and greater professionalism.

We publish four comprehensive insurance directories - Insurance Directory of Asia, Reinsurance Directory of Asia - which serve as reference for the industry to stay in touch.
