AM Best’s connection with the Asia-Pacific region began in 1991 when the company invited officials from the People’s Republic of China to visit the Oldwick Headquarters. A few years later, representatives from the research-consulting branch of Japan’s largest brokerage firm visited to discuss the rating system and capital adequacy model. Soon, insurers from China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Korea began requesting ratings from AM Best. To maintain a positive presence throughout the Asian market, AM Best established a subsidiary in Hong Kong in 1999. In 2008, the office was relocated to its current location in the Wanchai district, one of the major business areas in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong, a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, was originally a small fishing community. It was under British control for more than 150 years before it was given back to China in 1997. Today, it is one of the
world’s most prosperous economies and a major international trade hub. AM Best’s office is in the Wanchai district, which includes landmarks with hundreds of years of history such as the Pak Tai Temple.
