Singaporean health company Fullerton Health has received over $100mn investment from Ping An Capital, part of Ping An Insurance in China. The investment will see it expand its operations into mainland China and cement its position across Asia.

Amidst Asia’s transformation surrounding the delivery of its healthcare services, the move will see both companies support the need for increased accessible and affordable healthcare across the region. This also covers increased medical spend, building capacity at grassroots level and gradually increasing focus on supply side reform, reducing costs and improving efficiencies across the board.  

The decision also reflects on Ping An Capital’s commitment to invest in both the health and fintech sector.

"This partnership is an important milestone for Fullerton Health in China,” commented David Sin, Deputy Chairman of Fullerton Health. With the investment, Ping An Capital and its related parties have become Fullerton's second largest shareholder.
