Clements Worldwide, a global provider of international insurance products and reinsurance capabilities, today announced the launch of a partnership with Starr China to deliver insurance coverage to expatriates and international organisations in China.
Starr China, a premier China-based insurer, is joining forces with Clements to target the international individual and group segment in this growing insurance market. Starr China, under license by Clements Worldwide, will introduce Clements Scholars®, a group health program for expatriate educators and school staff, to serve the international school community in China. Clements Scholars is unique in that it provides comprehensive insurance coverage, extensive member access to medical facilities and standardised benefits to educational institutions with locations in multiple countries.
“China has one of the world’s largest number of international schools, with more than 300 educational institutions employing expatriate teachers and personnel,” said Chris Beck, president of Clements Worldwide. “China is a fantastic market for Clements Scholars. The program is already recognised for helping teachers and staff access medical facilities, top providers and resources around the world. With Starr China’s local market leadership, Clements Scholars will soon be the reference in China as well.”
“Clements Scholars offers an affordable, wide-reaching, and comprehensive plan, a best-in-class network of providers and rich member benefits,” said Kevin Liang, president of Starr China. “We are confident about the potential of Clements Scholars in China, as well as the opportunity present in this market for products covering international property, school directors’ liability and others, for a complete suite of expatriate and international risk management coverage solutions.”
Starr China and Clements Worldwide seek to provide insurance coverage to the estimated 633,000 expats living in China, a community growing by about 5 percent each year alongside growth in China’s economy. The partnership affords expatriates access to more choices for international health and other insurance products, addressing the rising costs of medical care at private clinics used by foreigners in China.
Mr. Beck adds, “Our expertise in serving the international school market and expatriate markets, in addition to broader multinational corporate market, will ensure our customers receive world-class medical treatment and save money in the process in China and worldwide.”
