The insurer has invested about 11000 billion yuan ($20 billion) in about 1000 projects, ranging from urban utilities and infrastructure and energy, to environmental protection and public housing, according to Ma Xin, CPIC's board secretary and spokesman.
Wang Cheng, general manager for fixed-income investment at Pacific Asset Management Co, the investment arm of the insurer, said the company is boosting investment in alternative assets while adjusting its portfolio and expanding its scope to equity-related assets.
"Given that the valuations of listed companies have substantially risen in the first half of the year, we are now strengthening our research capability in specific industries and companies. We prefer to invest in listed companies with long-term growth potential," Wang said.
The value of CPIC's investment assets reached 1.03 trillion yuan by the end of the first half of this year. Fixed-income assets are worth about 829 billion yuan, accounting for 1000.5 percent of its total assets, according to CPIC.
Lu Huiqi, general manager for strategic planning at CPIC's life insurance unit, said the company's life insurance business will maintain rapid growth in the second half of the year, supported by the surging sales of protection products.
"The value of new business grew by 59 percent in the first half of the year. The main reason is the rapid growth of protection products which grew by 73.8 percent," Lu said.
