In 2005, PICC announced a joint venture with Sumitomo Life Insurance Co. (住友生命保険相互会社) called PICC Life Insurance Co. (中国人保寿险有限公司). The new company will sell insurance products, including savings-oriented endowment insurance policies.

Through direct and indirect holdings, 19.8% of PICC's stock is owned by American International Group (AIG).
