The launch of DataHub from Asia Insurance Review is a milestone achievement in the development of insurance media in the region – putting the data user firmly in charge – and offering a very versatile tool for subscribers to the service.

Anyone who has ever had to compare the growth of performance of a single business line of insurance in one market with the same business line in another will know how frustrating, time-consuming and energy intensive it can be.
Comparing the performance of a single insurance institution across multiple time periods can prove to be equally daunting. Ensuring completeness and accuracy of the data – as well as making sure that it is the most up-to-date available can be a challenge in itself.
And that is why the launch of DataHub from Asia Insurance Review is such a significant development and is sure to be welcomed by many.
DataHub is a comprehensive database of much of the significant performance information and data about insurers, reinsurers, brokers and regulators across a range of markets in the Asia-Pacific region – with the list of countries covered set to grow swiftly in the coming months.
The data can only be accessed by subscribers to the service – and they alone can interrogate the data from a wide range of insurance entities – and immediately see where and when those institutions have appeared in the pages of the Asia Insurance Review stable of titles – in news, interviews, market profiles and more.
Subscribers can interpret the data and export it in a format of their choosing so that they can work on it offline.
Who is it for?
DataHub will prove to be indispensable for anyone who needs access to high quality data from the last 10 years and who needs to be able to manipulate that data to give them the answers they are seeking.
DataHub will appeal to investors, analysts, consultants and regulators as well as professional insurance industry players who require the information to monitor the performance of competitors, partners and associates.
Insurers looking for overseas expansion opportunities will also find DataHub to be indispensable.
Subscribers to DataHub will also gain access to exclusive in-depth reports on the insurance sector in the Asia-Pacific region as soon as they are published. They will receive four of these report as part of their annual subscription.
The first report in the series looks at InsurTech across the region – and the second looks at the growth of the motor insurance market in Hong Kong.
