PICC P&C is China's largest insurer of casualty insurance. It is licensed to provide all major lines of insurance except life insurance. PICC P&C was established in 2002 from the former property and casualty insurance division of the PICC, which, divested of insurance responsibilities, re-organized itself into PICC Holding Company.

PICC P&C is the designated agent within the People's Republic of China for most international insurance companies. PICC has branch offices in London and New York.

PICC is the majority shareholder in PICC (HK) Company Limited, which opened in Hong Kong in 2002. It is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol 2328. SEHK: 2328

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).
