AXA China Region again allegedly conned into paying commissions
ICAC, 1-Feb-2023
Yuki Fan Ting Yan is charged with defrauding AXA of HK$1.9m in commissions and bonuses. As long as the industry offers large up-front rewards built into product prices, it will keep the ICAC busy at taxpayers' expense. Insurers should pay the ICAC a commission too.

ICAC, 29-Apr-2016
An earlier announcement disclosed that the insurance policy was US$2m (HK$15.6m). It earned an up-front commission of HK$1.2m for the agency, CTHK Asset Management Ltd. $0.5m of this made its way to the HSBC staffer, who was only supposed to flog HSBC's prodcuts. The almost 8% front-end fee is a useful reminder of just how inefficient these policies are as a method of savings.

One simple point comes out of this: the brokerage fee AXA pays on a US$2m (HK$15.6m) savings plan is HK$1.24m, or about 8%. We wonder why anyone would buy such inefficient savings vehicles.
