Spanish reinsurer Mapfre Re has received authorisation from the National Financial Regulatory Administration of the People’s Republic of China to establish a new branch in Beijing.  

This development mark a decisive advancement in the company’s strategic growth and presence in the Chinese market. 

The new Beijing branch is expected to enhance Mapfre Re’s service offerings and bolster support for its Chinese clientele, thereby consolidating its market position and regional prominence.  

Following the approval, Mapfre Re is now set to commence the necessary pre-opening activities with local administrations, in compliance with local regulations. 

The company has been involved in China’s insurance sector since the early 1980s. 

Mapfre Re CEO Miguel Rosa said: “The opening of this branch reinforces our commitment to the Chinese market and to continue increasing our services in Asia, a continent in which Mapfre Re has a direct presence – in addition to China – in the Philippines, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore.
