Mission and Vision

Institute of Insurance and Risk Management (IIRM) aims to become a leading centre of excellence in research activities and talent trainings for the risk management and insurance industry in Hong Kong, China, and the Region. It will contribute to developing Hong Kong as a premier international insurance hub through its academic and practice-oriented research as well as other related activities such as hosting industry-oriented forums and conducting practice-oriented surveys. Specifically, our goals are to:


  • conduct high-quality research studies in the areas of insurance and risk management for the benefits of Hong Kong's insurance industry and the society at large
  • contribute to Hong Kong's development as a premier international insurance hub by liaising with the industry and regulators through joint efforts in upgrading best industry practices, attracting potential talents to the industry, and enhancing talents development and professionalism
  • contribute to the development of risk and insurance industry in the Greater Bay Area. Shenzhen is the most conomically-developed city in Mainland China, with an advanced finance industry as well as rapid growing high-technology industry. Hong Kong has been the world's freest economy and has a mature insurance services sector. The new national strategy of developing the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area will promote free flow of talents, goods, and capital across the Region and new opportunities for the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries as well as the development of new industries.
