AIA Hong Kong & Macau’s excellent performance was supported by growth in both its domestic and Mainland Chinese visitor (MCV) businesses and across its agency and partnership distribution channels. The Hong Kong & Macau business was the largest contributor to the Group’s VONB in 2023 as it successfully captured the very strong demand of the MCV segment following the full resumption of normal travel in February 2023. The Company continued to increase the number of active financial planners and work closely with its distribution partners to leverage the sustainable and growing opportunities from the MCV segment, which contributed around half of AIA Hong Kong & Macau’s VONB in 2023.

Mr Alger Fung, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Hong Kong & Macau, said, “​I am delighted to see AIA Hong Kong being the undisputed market champion in the industry with 10 market share No. 11, while the Hong Kong & Macau business being the largest contributor to AIA Group’s VONB in 20232.
