CNinsure To Expand its Business to Jiangxi Province

2008-07-17 12:30:00

    GUANGZHOU, China, July 17 /Xinhua-EMWNews/ -- CNinsure

Inc. (Nasdaq: CISG), a leading independent insurance agency and brokerage

company operating in China, today announced the signing of a set of

definitive agreements with several individual entrepreneurial agents to

jointly establish a new insurance agency named Jiangxi Fanhua Insurance

Agency Co., Ltd.(''Jiangxi Fanhua''), expanding its market presence to

Jiangxi Province in central China. After the establishment of Jiangxi

Fanhua, CNinsure's distribution network will have reached 16 provinces.



    Jiangxi Fanhua, 70% owned by CNinsure, will focus on life insurance

product distribution. It is expected to start operations in September 2008

subject to certain consents, authorizations and other customary conditions.

The new insurance agency will be led by two entrepreneurial agents who were

both former senior managers of insurance companies. Both of them have been

in the life insurance sector for over 20 years, during which they have

maintained strong relationships with insurance companies in the region

while getting access to a wide sales agent and customer base.



    Commenting on this event, CNinsure's Chairman and Chief Executive

Officer, Yinan Hu, said, ''In view of the recurring fee nature of life

insurance policies and the expected growing demand for life insurance

products, CNinsure has treated life insurance business as a major focus

since 2006. In 2008, we will continue to expand this line of business,

including putting more efforts into recruiting senior entrepreneurial

agents who are experienced in life insurance marketing. We believe the

valuable experience of Jiangxi Fanhua's new management will be instrumental

to the growth of our life insurance business in the region.''



    He continued, ''The establishment of the new joint venture also marks

our entry to the 16th province. While others see underdevelopment in

Jiangxi's insurance market, we see significant growth potential. Adding to

the growth momentum is the support from the Jiangxi Insurance Regulatory

Bureau for the development of the local insurance market.''
