(The following statement was released by the rating agency) Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: 2017 Outlook: China Life Insurers here HONG KONG, December 08 (Fitch) 本文章英文原文最初於2016年12月8日發布于:<a href="">Fitch: Low Interest Rates Pressure China Life Insurers' Profitability 惠譽評級在最新發布的一份報告中表示,中國的低利率對壽險公司的盈利能力造成壓力,壽險公司的盈利依賴于利差。 中國保險監督管理委員會(保監會)全面放開2.5%的最低保證利率限制於2015年10月開始生效,此後,中國的壽險公司對保單的定價更加激進。這可能會進一步壓縮其利差 。 壽險公司已經轉向投資風險更高的資產,以維持投資收益。在經濟增速放緩的情況下,此舉使公司的信用狀況更容易受到資本市場的不利波動以及潛在的信用質量惡化的影響。 另類投資(包括債務投資計劃、項目資產支持計劃、信託計劃及理財產品)、長期股權、地產及海外投資占中國壽險公司資產的份額加大。另類投資的流動性通常比普通債券差,並且 集中於基礎設施和房地產行業。 保監會對高現金價值產品的控管將會抑制2017年壽險行業的保費增長,並將對中國壽險公司的流動性管理帶來挑戰。資產負債久期錯配嚴重的保險公司將面臨更大的壓力。此類保 險公司的收入主要來自短期保單,同時將資產分配于長期投資。如果公司無法維持充足的新保費因應保險索賠或償付,流動性壓力可能升高。 惠譽對中國壽險行業的評級及行業展望維持為穩定,因為惠譽認為保險公司的評級受到穩健的市場地位、充足的資本金水平及外部融資能力的支持。關鍵的評級限制因素包括收益波動 性、資產風險及保險公司銷售同質儲蓄型保險產品的激烈競爭。 本報告《2017年展望:中國壽險公司》請參見<a href=""> 或點擊本新聞稿上方鏈接。 聯繫人: Joyce Huang(黃佳琪) 董事 +852 2263 9595 惠譽國際評級有限公司 香港中環德輔道中68號 萬宜大廈19樓 Terrence Wong(王長泰) 董事 +852 2263 9920 Jeffrey Liew 高級董事 +852 2263 9939 Media Relations: Wai-Lun Wan, Hong Kong, Tel: +852 2263 9935, Email: 詳情參見<a href=""> 注意:本新聞稿為中文譯本。如有疑問,請以英文版本為準。 ALL FITCH CREDIT RATINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN LIMITATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS.

Reproduction or retransmission in whole or in part is prohibited except by permission. All rights reserved. In issuing and maintaining its ratings and in making other reports (including forecast information), Fitch relies on factual information it receives from issuers and underwriters and from other sources Fitch believes to be credible. Fitch conducts a reasonable investigation of the factual information relied upon by it in accordance with its ratings methodology, and obtains reasonable verification of that information from independent sources, to the extent such sources are available for a given security or in a given jurisdiction. The manner of Fitch’s factual investigation and the scope of the third-party verification it obtains will vary depending on the nature of the rated security and its issuer, the requirements and practices in the jurisdiction in which the rated security is offered and sold and/or the issuer is located, the availability and nature of relevant public information, access to the management of the issuer and its advisers, the availability of pre-existing third-party verifications such as audit reports, agreed-upon procedures letters, appraisals, actuarial reports, engineering reports, legal opinions and other reports provided by third parties, the availability of independent and competent third- party verification sources with respect to the particular security or in the particular jurisdiction of the issuer, and a variety of other factors. Users of Fitch’s ratings and reports should understand that neither an enhanced factual investigation nor any third-party verification can ensure that all of the information Fitch relies on in connection with a rating or a report will be accurate and complete. Ultimately, the issuer and its advisers are responsible for the accuracy of the information they provide to Fitch and to the market in offering documents and other reports. In issuing its ratings and its reports, Fitch must rely on the work of experts, including independent auditors with respect to financial statements and attorneys with respect to legal and tax matters. Further, ratings and forecasts of financial and other information are inherently forward-looking and embody assumptions and predictions about future events that by their nature cannot be verified as facts. As a result, despite any verification of current facts, ratings and forecasts can be affected by future events or conditions that were not anticipated at the time a rating or forecast was issued or affirmed. The information in this report is provided “as is” without any representation or warranty of any kind, and Fitch does not represent or warrant that the report or any of its contents will meet any of the requirements of a recipient of the report. A Fitch rating is an opinion as to the creditworthiness of a security. This opinion and reports made by Fitch are based on established criteria and methodologies that Fitch is continuously evaluating and updating. Therefore, ratings and reports are the collective work product of Fitch and no individual, or group of individuals, is solely responsible for a rating or a report. The rating does not address the risk of loss due to risks other than credit risk, unless such risk is specifically mentioned. Fitch is not engaged in the offer or sale of any security. All Fitch reports have shared authorship. Individuals identified in a Fitch report were involved in, but are not solely responsible for, the opinions stated therein. The individuals are named for contact purposes only. A report providing a Fitch rating is neither a prospectus nor a substitute for the information assembled, verified and presented to investors by the issuer and its agents in connection with the sale of the securities. Ratings may be changed or withdrawn at any time for any reason in the sole discretion of Fitch. Fitch does not provide investment advice of any sort. Ratings are not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any security. Ratings do not comment on the adequacy of market price, the suitability of any security for a particular investor, or the tax-exempt nature or taxability of payments made in respect to any security. Fitch receives fees from issuers, insurers, guarantors, other obligors, and underwriters for rating securities. Such fees generally vary from US$1,000 to US$750,000 (or the applicable currency equivalent) per issue. In certain cases, Fitch will rate all or a number of issues issued by a particular issuer, or insured or guaranteed by a particular insurer or guarantor, for a single annual fee. Such fees are expected to vary from US$10,000 to US$1,500,000 (or the applicable currency equivalent). The assignment, publication, or dissemination of a rating by Fitch shall not constitute a consent by Fitch to use its name as an expert in connection with any registration statement filed under the United States securities laws, the Financial Services and Markets Act of 2000 of the United Kingdom, or the securities laws of any particular jurisdiction. Due to the relative efficiency of electronic publishing and distribution, Fitch research may be available to electronic subscribers up to three days earlier than to print subscribers. For Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan and South Korea only: Fitch Australia Pty Ltd holds an Australian financial services license (AFS license no. 337123) which authorizes it to provide credit ratings to wholesale clients only. Credit ratings information published by Fitch is not intended to be used by persons who are retail clients within the meaning of the Corporations Act 2001
