Mitsui Sumitomo Auto Insurance Overview

The company also offers a la carte claims services and administration. Mitsui Sumitomo sells a variety of investment and asset management services.

The company’s products include financial planning and consulting, risk management, and mutual funds. Mitsui Sumitomo offers insurance products through a network of more than 40,000 independent insurance agents and brokers around the world.

The company also maintains a proprietary group of sales agents through which it markets a variety of financial products and services in 40 plus countries.

In order to compete in a stagnant economic environment, Mitsui Sumitomo announced its plans to merge with two competitors: Aioi Insurance and Nissay Dowa General Insurance.

The merger was completed by 2010, creating an even more tightly consolidated insurance industry in Japan. CEO Toshiaki Egashira (Mitsui Sumitomo’s victorious CEO) took over the reins of the newly merged company as chairman of the board.

In 2010, the new company deployed a new strategy to enter into the Malaysian non-life insurance market. To accomplish this goal, the company bought shares of Hong Leong Financial. MS&AD simultaneously expanded operations in China in 2010.

By 2011, the firm bought half of the outstanding shares of Asuransi Jiwa Sinarmas (an Indonesian life insurance company) for approximately ¥67 billion or $825 million.

Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance was founded in 2004 as a result of the merged Sumitomo Marine & Fire Company and Mitsui Marine & Fire Insurance Company.

After 2004, the merged company continued to expand. It acquired Aviva Insurance along with insurance operations of various companies in the following countries:

  • Hong Kong
  • Malaysia
  • Indonesia
  • Thailand
  • Singapore
  • Philippines
  • Brunei
