CEO, ZhongAn Online P&C Insurance
Launched in 2015, ZhongAn has quickly asserted itself as a leader in applying digital solutions to insurance in the massive China market. Chen stewarded his company to a $1.5 billion IPO in late 2017, and the company is on track to shatter its previous high in auto insurance premiums this year. Chen cites the company's heavy investment in big data and AI as the reason for its growth. In late 2016, Chen launched ZhongAn Technology to serve as an insurtech incubator within the company. That division has implemented several blockchain projects, including one for agriculture insurance that will monitor the lifecycle of chickens in rural China.
