    Hong Kong to license 1st online-only insurer in fintech push

    Hong Kong is set to license its first online-only insurer under a "fast-track" system next month, the regulatory head said, as it fights off criticism for being slower to make use of new technology than other parts of the financial services world. The online platform will operate in a market worth more than $63 billion in insurance premiums, and will compete with players such as AIA Group and the local units of Prudential Plc and Sun Life Financial Inc. The move comes as Hong Kong is pushing a number of financial technology or "fintech" initiatives in an effort to compete better with rival centres in Singapore and London to reel in more investment.
