  • KWG in Thailand will be well-positioned to provide a comprehensive suite of solutions to their customers.

Bangkok, ThailandKing Wai Group (Thailand) Public Company Limited (“KWG“) and Manulife Financial Asia Limited (“Manulife”) today announced that the parties have entered into an agreement for the acquisition of Manulifes life insurance and asset management businesses in Thailand. The transaction was signed today, subject to regulatory approvals.

This transaction builds upon the 2018 acquisition by KWG of a general insurer in Thailand (now known as King Wai Insurance Public Company Limited), allowing KWG to enter Thailands burgeoning insurance market.

As part of KWGs drive to digitize and reinforce its mission to be a technologydriven business, the acquisition of Manulifes Thailand businesses enables KWG to expand their insurance offering to include the Kingdom of Thailands growing life insurance and asset management markets, which will result in a more comprehensive offering to its customers.

Antonio Chan, Vice Chairman of KWG, said: “Thailands insurance industry is digitizing at a rapid pace. This acquisition provides a strong platform for us to establish KWG as a leading player in the digital insurance market in Thailand.” Chan added: “We are well positioned to scale the business and bring new and innovative solutions to customers via new digital services, diversifying our product range, and enhancing distribution.”

Manulife has been in Thailand for over 15 years and has a strong legacy in Asia. The Company recently announced expansion plans into India, subject to regulatory approval, and Myanmar.

“Manulife has operated in Asia for over 120 years, and recently expanded our footprint with entry into India and Myanmar, in line with our focus on scale and scalable markets,” said Anil Wadhwani, President and Chief Executive Officer at Manulife Asia. “We believe King Wai Group will take the business forward, alongside its other businesses in Thailand.”
