The conference provides a platform for senior executives from private insurance, brokers, providers and industry experts to discuss business potential in the billion-dollar Asian health insurance market.

Mark Bromhead will be one of the keynote speakers on the discussion of:

  • Health Insurance Outlook

The industry outlook is promising with economic growth driving demand in Asia and high out-of-pocket expenses further fuelling Southeast Asia’s appetite for private health insurance. But key challenges remain including educating the customers, balancing product affordability and coverage and coping with ballooning medical costs.

Attendees will have an opportunity to create networks with industry players as shown below.


Mark Bromhead will be discussing the given key topics from the perspective of an industry specialist on expat insurance. Village Insurance is one of the leading insurance brokerages in Hong Kong that has been bridging the gap between expat insurance needs and Hong Kong insurance providers.
