The middle class in emerging Asia is more concerned with their health and more likely to adopt health-promoting behaviors while being mindful of the significant financial burden that medical bills carry.

In terms of personal finances, based on the survey, middle-class people in emerging Asia are also more confident about their financial literacy and more disciplined about spending and saving.

This optimism is reflected in the fact that more of them have ambitions to become entrepreneurs or expect employers to improve their work-life balance.

Franz Josef Hahn, CEO of Peak Re, said: “Emerging Asia’s share of world GDP has increased significantly from 5% in 1990 to an estimated 26% in 2022, according to the IMF2. Despite cyclical economic challenges, emerging Asia is expected to remain the fastest-growing region in the world over the next decade.

“With higher income levels and the rise of the middle class, there are significant opportunities for insurers and reinsurers to offer risk mitigation and protection solutions. Since 2012, Peak Re’s mandate to support the emerging Asian middle class has made it well-positioned to benefit from this tremendous growth.”
