  • 300% : How much faster the Chinese life insurance market is growing relative to NZ

  • 90 : The number of insurance brokers in China for each broker in NZ and still growing like topsy

  • 0 : Number of instant life insurance websites in China

  • 1.3% : Life insurance premiums in NZ as a % of premiums in China
  • 0.7% : The above ratio when the 2012 Olympics comes around if life insurance in China keeps growing at the current rate. we’ll beat them in rowing...
