Ximco Corporation was founded in 1996 as an insurance broker with its headquarters in Shanghai. It is client-oriented and has been at the forefront of risk management and insurance services in China since the development of the insurance intermediary sector.

Ximco’s operations began even before insurance regulators in China began granting licenses for agents and brokers. As a result, their clients benefit from market-leading risk transfer solutions and tailored coverage according to client needs and local conditions.

This is backed up with the highest standards of professional service.

Ximco believes that their clients are in the best position to identify the risks they face each and every day. Ximco’s role is to learn about and understand their clients’ operations in order to help them identify their risk exposure. Through this process, a coherent risk management strategy can be developed to help clients avoid potential pitfalls.

At Ximco, they pride themselves on being a private family-owned firm focused on success by delivering value-added solutions to their clients. As such, they avoid having a short-term focus to their business objectives. They are not driven by quarterly results or market share considerations; their priority is the needs of their clients.
