“The resurgences of COVID-19 have brought far-reaching impact on China’s economy and business activities nation-wide, directly or indirectly hurting consumer confidence and purchasing power of middle-class families. Many industries have been drastically impacted, and the insurance industry was certainly not immune” Commenting on the financial results of second quarter of 2021, Mr. Chunlin Wang, chairman and chief executive officer of Fanhua, stated, “In the second quarter, China’s life insurance industry saw a decline of 16.6% year-over-year. Against the headwind, we still managed to record RMB2.5 billion in total life insurance GWP, up by 4.9% year-over-year, with operating income beating expectation to achieve RMB51.0 million. For the first half of 2021, while the life insurance industry only grew by 0.4% year-over-year in GWP, our life insurance business grew by 16.9% year-over-year to RMB5.5 billion in terms of GWP and our operating income achieved RMB191.4 million, meeting nearly two-thirds of our target for 2021.

“Faced with industrial challenges, we also see great opportunities. We believe that there is tremendous room waiting to be explored in China’s life insurance market in the long run, and that professional insurance intermediaries, as an important insurance distribution force, still will benefit from the huge growth potential.

“With an ageing population, the demand of Chinese middle-class families for commercial pension insurance and long-term annuity is expected to continue to grow, and thus opens up a huge blue ocean market. The key to cultivating and meeting such demand is to build a high-quality sales force, gain customer insight through digital intelligence, and provide customers with a variety of customized products according to their individual needs, thus prolonging customer life cycle. We believe that our ‘Professionalization, Digitalization and Open Platform’ strategy has prepared us well for grasping such market opportunities.

“We are glad that we have made good progress in implementing our ‘Professionalization, Digitalization and Open Platform’ strategy. To date, we have approved the establishment of 14 Yuntong (literally translated as Cloud Phoenixtree) branches2, among which nine are preparing for opening. In the meantime, we have initiated the application of new digital tools in Hebei Province on a pilot basis since May 2021 and received positive feedback. Building on our experience in the Hebei pilot zone, we plan to roll out digital tools among our frontline sales force on a wider basis across China in the third quarter of 2021, so as to assist our team leaders to manage their teams more efficiently and empower agents to better engage with the clients based on data-driven insights and digitalized operations.

“We expect our new business for the third quarter of 2021 to improve on a quarter-over-quarter basis while operating income to be no less than RMB25 million, as we will accelerate the pace of the implementation of our new strategy, with increased spending on setting up Yuntong branches and promotion of digitalization initiatives. In the meantime, we will also spare no effort to ramp up sales in the last quarter to achieve our full-year sales target and gear up for the Jumpstart Sales Campaign for 2022. Operating income is expected to exceed RMB100 million for the second half of 2021 and RMB300 million for 2021.”

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2021

Total net revenues were RMB689.9 million (US$106.9 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 21.7% from RMB881.5 million for the corresponding period in 2020.

  • Net revenues for agency business were RMB577.4 million (US$89.4 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 24.6% from RMB765.8 million for the corresponding period in 2020. In the second quarter of 2021, total GWP increased by 4.3% year-over-year to RMB2.5 billion, of which first year premiums decreased by 16.7% year-over-year to RMB509.7 million and renewal premiums grew by 17.3% year-over-year to RMB2,031.3 million.
    • Net revenues for the life insurance business were RMB542.8 million (US$84.0 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 25.5% from RMB728.5 million for the corresponding period in 2020. The decrease was mainly due to the weakened demand for critical illness insurance after the strong sales prior to the transition to the new critical illness definition framework in the first quarter of 2021, and relatively high base due to post-COVID19 boost in the corresponding period in 2020. In the second quarter of 2021, total GWP increased by 4.9% year-over-year to RMB2.5 billion, of which first year premiums decreased by 30.0% year-over-year to RMB428.5 million and renewal premiums increased by 17.3% year-over-year to RMB2,031.3 million. 

      During the current period, estimated variable renewal commissions related to long-term life insurance products of RMB57.2 million (US$8.9 million) was recognized in our financial statements. The estimated renewal commissions are contingent on future renewals of initial policies or achievement of certain performance targets. Given the material uncertainty around the subsequent renewal of the insurance policies, the estimated renewal commissions expected to be collected are recognized as revenue only to the extent that it is probable that a significant reversal in the amount of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty is subsequently resolved. With the passing of time and accumulation of historical experiences and data, the judgment and assumptions will be continuously re-evaluated and adjusted as needed when more information becomes available. Actual renewal commissions in the future may differ significantly from those previously estimated.

      Revenues generated from our life insurance business accounted for 78.7% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2021.
    • Net revenues for the P&C insurance business were RMB34.6 million (US$5.4 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 7.0% from RMB37.3 million for the corresponding period in 2020. Net revenues for the P&C insurance business are mainly derived from commissions for short term products, including accident insurance, medical insurance, travel insurance and homeowner insurance products facilitated on Baowang (www.baoxian.com). The decrease was primarily due to the decline in the sales of accident insurance through Baowang. Revenues generated from the P&C insurance business accounted for 5.0% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2021.
  • Net revenues for the claims adjusting business were RMB112.5 million (US$17.4 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 2.8% from RMB115.8 million for the corresponding period in 2020. The decrease was mainly due to the decline in claims adjusting business related to non-auto P&C insurance and marine & cargo insurance. Such decrease was partially offset by the growth in our medical insurance-related claims adjusting business. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 16.3% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2021.

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB638.9 million (US$99.0 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 18.6% from RMB784.6 million for the corresponding period in 2020.

      • Costs of the life insurance business were RMB337.2 million (US$52.2 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 33.4% from RMB506.8 million for the corresponding period in 2020. The decrease was in line with the decline in net revenues generated from our life insurance business. Costs incurred by the life insurance business accounted for 78.1% of our total commission costs in the second quarter of 2021.
      • Costs of the P&C insurance business were RMB26.4 million (US$4.1 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 7.7% from RMB28.6 million for the corresponding period in 2020.

Costs incurred by the P&C insurance business accounted for 6.1% of our total commission costs in the second quarter of 2021.
    • Costs of claims adjusting business were RMB68.1 million (US$10.6 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 5.9% from RMB64.3 million for the corresponding period in 2020.

  • Selling expenses were RMB79.3 million (US$12.3 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 13.1% from RMB70.1 million for the corresponding period in 2020. The increase was the result of headcount increase related to digital operation division.

  • General and administrative expenses were RMB127.9 million (US$19.8 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 11.5% from RMB114.7 million for the corresponding period in 2020. The increase was mainly due to increased contributions to employees’ defined contribution plans which had a lower base in the same period of last year as the government waived the contribution in 2020 in view of the impact of COVID-19 and increased expenditure including payroll and rental expense on the establishment of Fanhua Yuntong branches.

As a result of the preceding factors, we recorded an operating income of RMB51.0 million (US$7.9 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 47.4% from RMB96.9 million for the corresponding period in 2020.

Share of income of affiliates was RMB11.0 million (US$1.7 million) for the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 144.4% from RMB4.5 million for the corresponding period in 2020, mainly attributable to the increase in income from CNFinance Holdings Limited.
