The future of the insurance industry in Hong Kong and roles in demand
The insurance industry in Hong Kong is being reshaped by three key factors:
- Regulatory requirements: With both local and international regulatory requirements continuing to re-shape the insurance industry, Hong Kong is responding with new legislative amendments to position itself as a central hub for insurance-linked securities in the Asia Pacific region.
- Digital transformation: Evolving technology is having a tremendous impact on the actuarial profession. Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and automation are transforming the role of actuaries, allowing a greater focus on delivering insights that provide enhanced support for decision making.
- IFRS 17: Although many companies in Hong Kong have implemented IFRS 17, the introduction of the new standard is particularly challenging given the diversity of the insurance market in Hong Kong, which ranges from local companies to multinationals. This is driving demand for experienced insurance industry professionals with not only strong actuarial knowledge, but the ability to adapt.
Top insurance roles in demand:
- Finance and accounting professionals
- Internal auditors
- IFRS 17 professionals
As the insurance industry in Hong Kong continues to navigate change, it is critical for companies to have teams in place with the right blend of skills to adapt and thrive.
If you are currently looking for insurance industry specialists with skills spanning finance, actuarial, compliance, IFRS 17, and management of new technologies, our recruitment agency has the contacts to help you build an experienced workforce.
How Robert Half has helped Hong Kong insurance clients meet their recruitment needs
As a leading recruitment agency for the insurance industry in Hong Kong, we understand that your hiring needs will vary depending on your business priorities. At Robert Half, we can source insurance industry talent on a contract basis when you need a specific skillset for a set period of time, or permanent hires to join your team on a long-term basis.
Hiring assignment: A client, specialising in life insurance, was acquired by a well-known China-based commercial company and needed a new CFO to replace their predecessor who had decided to leave the organisation.
Our solution: Thanks to Robert Half's vast database of pre-screened talent, extensive access to passive candidates and focus on establishing strong relationships with candidates throughout different stages of their career, the team of expert consultants were able to create a high-quality shortlist of senior financial talent. After organising various interview rounds, the recruitment team were able to make a successful placement within two months.
Result: Aside from successfully managing the company’s finance function, the CFO has outstanding management and communication skills, and this has had a direct impact on the morale of the accounting team, helping to raise the company’s staff retention rate.
Hiring assignment: A Chinese banking group selling insurance was initially seeking an Assistant Pricing Manager to assist with setting pricing schemes for the company's insurance products. Being an advisor, the Robert Half team advised the client to hire a more junior position to meet their business goals and they agreed to find a qualified Senior Associate instead.
Our solution: The Robert Half team widely promoted the opportunity across multiple channels and tapped into their large database of pre-screened talent. Because of the extensive search, the team were able to propose three suitable candidates to the client within one week. The client was in a position to extend a job offer to their preferred candidate the week after.
Result: The placed candidate has successfully worked on the pricing tasks, ensuring accurate, reliable, and timely information was made available across the company. This in itself has proven invaluable to the pricing team.
