Chinese firm ZA Tech Global is partnering Indonesian payments giant Ovo to offer Indonesian insurance companies access to its proprietary insurtech capabilities and applications.
BCP, the holding company of Indonesia’s leading e-wallet Ovo, and ZA Tech Global, a technology venture for overseas markets of ZhongAn Online P&C Insurance, have announced a strategic joint venture to create an insurtech platform in Indonesia, towards fast-tracking digitalization of Indonesia’s insurance industry and improving financial inclusion.
The joint venture will help Indonesian insurance companies rapidly digitize their products and offer fractionalized digital insurance products to the masses, in turn driving and improving financial inclusion in Indonesia’s vastly underserved market, the announcement said.
Underinsured Market
The announcment noted that only 1.7 percent of Indonesia’s population of 265 million are currently covered by private insurance. It is also the fastest-growing market in Southeast Asia, with economic growth averaging over 5 percent in the past three years.
«The low awareness of the benefits and role of insurance as a tool for protection, savings and wealth creation in Indonesia is something we seek to address. The current pandemic has further highlighted the need for insurance to safeguard people’s health and welfare,» Bill Song, CEO of ZA Tech, said.
ZA Tech Global previously inked micro-insurance partnerships with Grab and NTUC Income in Singapore, and regionally with AIA.
