Product description

On 23 September 2019, the independent Insurance Authority (“IA”) was established, which has significantly transformed the insurance industry regulatory infrastructure in Hong Kong. Financially and operationally independent, the IA is vested with licensing, supervision and disciplinary powers over insurers and insurance intermediaries, and its formation can be considered the most considerable reform initiative in the insurance industry. With these developments in mind, this Handbook reproduces the text of the Insurance Ordinance (Cap 41) and all relevant subsidiary legislation as currently in force, together with a concise and straightforward introduction to the principles and current developments of insurance law in Hong Kong. Section-by-section annotations encompass significant judicial decisions, as well as notes ranging from definitions of words and phrases to discussion on practical aspects and contentious issues. In addition, cross-references are made to subsidiary legislation and to tables and forms where necessary. This Handbook will be an essential companion for lawyers, businesspersons, in-house counsel, academics and all those who are engaged with or interested in insurance law in Hong Kong.
