Allianz Taiwan Life Insurance Co Ltd today announces that it has reached an agreement to sell a part of its traditional life insurance portfolio to China Life Insurance Co., headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan.

This sale supports Allianz’s strategy to actively manage its life portfolio in Taiwan towards more capital-efficient solutions. The transaction includes a portfolio of approximately 78,000 policies with a guaranteed interest rate of 4 percent or higher, with a combined IFRS policy reserves of 1.2 billion euros (42.1 billion Taiwan new dollars).

Upon closing, the transaction is expected to have a positive impact on the group’s Solvency II capital position. Allianz Taiwan Life employees will not be impacted by the deal.

George Sartorel, Regional CEO for Asia Pacific, Allianz, said, “With its strong balance sheet and track record in acquiring and integrating policies and policyholders, we believe China Life is the ideal candidate to take over this portfolio. Allianz remains fully committed to Taiwan, and this transaction is consistent with our priorities to serve customers with our core unit-linked and protection solutions.”

Under this agreement, all related assets and liabilities of the respective portfolio will be transferred to China Life, with full protection of customer interests and rights. This transaction is subject to China Life’s shareholder meeting and regulatory approval, and is expected to complete in mid-2018.

Allianz Taiwan Life is the largest multinational life insurance company in Taiwan by gross written premiums in 2016. Since entering the market in 1995, Allianz Taiwan Life has maintained a leading market position with an agency force of over 2,500 and a network of strategic bank partnerships.
