Toronto, Ontario - April 21, 2022 - Tenet Fintech Group Inc. (CSE: PKK) (OTC PINK:PKKFF) ("Tenet" or the "Company"), an innovative AI service provider and operator of the Business Hubs™, today announced that its Heartbeat insurance product management and brokerage platform recently passed a major milestone by processing more than 400,000insurance policies worth more than CAD$175M.
Tenet acquired the platform in the fall of 2021 to complement its Business Hub™ service offering in China and in anticipation of government regulations that came into effect on February 1, 2022, aimed at improving the supervision of the insurance brokerage industry and enhancing the industry's collection and management of data. Those regulations and the compliance obligations they carry have now driven 381 Chinese insurance brokerage companies to use Heartbeat to connect with, access and sell insurance products from some of China's top insurance companies, including Ping An Insurance (Group) Ltd., China Life Property & Casualty Insurance Company Ltd., The People's Insurance Company (Group) of China Ltd., and Bank of China Insurance Company Ltd. with whom the platform is linked. While today's announced milestone can largely be attributed to the new insurance brokerage industry regulations and to Tenet's agreement with Ping An Insurance for policies aimed at auto industry, the Company believes that future milestones and Heartbeat's impact on China's insurance industry will come as a result of the role that the platform will ultimately play within Tenet's Business Hub™.
"Our acquisition of Heartbeat was both opportunistic and strategic," said Liang Qiu, CEO of Tenet China. "Every platform that we develop, acquisition that we make or partnership that we sign is done with the intension of creating synergies with other components of our Business Hub™ and to enhance the Hub's offering. The Heartbeat platform is a prime example of that. Right now, Heartbeat is being used to help sell more traditional insurance products. But eventually, given the verticals we serve through the Hub, such as the oil and gas sector, the auto industry and commodities traders, the amount of transactional data at our disposal, our analytics capabilities to understand our clients' needs and our access to the country's insurance companies, we believe we'll be able to work with these insurance companies to design customized insurance products to perfectly fit our clients' needs and create new opportunities for our insurance partners."
