GlobalData anticipates that the potential partnership between Income Insurance and Allianz will strengthen the former’s position as a leading insurer in the Singapore insurance market.

Income Insurance’s local market presence will benefit from Allianz’s global expertise, resulting in an enhanced range of offerings for customers.

According to GlobalData’s Company LoB Breakdowns database, Income Insurance was Singapore’s third-largest general insurer and sixth-largest life insurer in 2022 with 5.6% and 7.2% shares of the market, respectively. On the other hand, Allianz is placed 17th among the general insurance market in Singapore and does not feature in the top 20 for life insurance.

The proposed partnership between Income and Allianz, which reportedly could involve Allianz acquiring a substantial stake, could have far-reaching implications for both the life insurance and general insurance sectors in Singapore.

Allianz could leverage Income’s strong local market presence and customer base, while tapping into its own global expertise, particularly in underwriting standards and digital capabilities. This collaboration, subject to regulatory approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore, has the potential to lead to enhanced offerings and services for policyholders by combining local market insights with international best practices, leading to the potential for market growth.

Allianz expansion into life insurance sector

While Allianz has a strong global presence in general insurance, its expansion into the life insurance sector in Singapore presents exciting opportunities for growth and innovation. The synergies between Income and Allianz could establish them as a significant player in the Singapore insurance market, providing a wide array of products and services to meet the changing demands of customers.
