Ping An Insurance (Group) Company of China Ltd ("Ping An", "the company") was established in Shekou, Shenzhen in 1988. The company was the first insurance company in China to adopt a shareholding structure. It has developed into a personal financial services group with three core businesses — insurance, banking and investment — enjoying parallel growth in both its core finance and internet finance businesses. The company's shares are listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (stock code: 2318) and the Shanghai Stock Exchange (stock code: 601318).
Ping An has one of the most comprehensive ranges of financial business licenses, widest business scopes, and most compact shareholding structures among China's personal financial service groups. Subsidiaries of Ping An include Ping An Life, Ping An Property & Casualty, Ping An Annuity, Ping An Health, Ping An Bank, Ping An Trust, Ping An Securities, and Ping An-UOB Fund. Ping An is one of the few financial groups in China that can provide customers with the full spectrum of financial products and services, including insurance, banking and investment. After years of effort, Ping An's internet business has experienced a boom, and its online user base has seen extremely high growth. As of June 30, 2017, Ping An's online user base had reached 403 million users, up 16.4 percent from the beginning of the year.
