Following the acquisition of the Canadian Insurance Company Limites, Aetna International has also acquired a license to offer health insurance in Hong Kong. The license will allow Aetna International to market their services and products under the Aetna brand. These moves are part of their goal in expanding their Asian footprint and bring greater access to good quality health insurance and benefits in the region.
Managing Director for Aetna International Asia Pacific comments:
“This expansion is very much in line with our global strategy to go ‘broader and deeper’ into local health care markets – bringing high quality and affordable healthcare to more people in Asia. Our new licence offers new opportunities for us to develop an enhanced proposition for the Hong Kong market, taking the best of our global expertise and pairing that with our local knowledge.”
