About QBE Vietnam
After opening a representative office in Vietnam in 1995, QBE later formed a joint-venture insurance company with a local bank. In 2005, the company became a 100% foreign-owned subsidiary of QBE Insurance (International) Limited.
With our head office in Ho Chi Minh City and a branch office in Hanoi, QBE Vietnam focuses on providing business insurance solutions to the corporate sector as well as for individuals. We work with professional insurance brokers and agents to provide international-standard products and claims services, particularly in the areas of professional lines, liability, marine, engineering, property, and specialty insurance. QBE Vietnam also provides facultative reinsurance support to the Vietnamese insurance market for large infrastructure projects and large property accounts.
QBE - enabling a more resilient future
At QBE we’re driven by our purpose of enabling a more resilient future – helping those around us build strength and embrace change to their advantage.
We’ve been cultivating resilience since 1886, when our founders started a marine insurance company to give early pioneers a safeguard against uncertainty.
Today, we’re still giving our customers confidence to explore, innovate and take measured risks, secure in the knowledge they’re covered by a strong insurer.
For our communities, our purpose drives us to build resilience and enrich lives. We are incredibly proud of our global disaster relief partnerships with Red Cross and Save the Children, through which we are investing to improve the capacity of local communities to prepare, anticipate, respond and recover from disasters.
Our approach to sustainability forms an essential part of our ability to deliver on our purpose and make a positive and impactful contribution to the environments, economies and communities in which we operate.
To be the most consistent and innovative risk partner
At QBE, we’re striving for greater consistency across everything we do. Our aim is to do things more consistently than our competitors, whether it’s in the experience we provide our customers and partners, the performance of our business or the values that connect our people.
Innovation represents our focus on continuous improvement and growth. This includes developing new and innovative products and experiences and continually evolving to make it easier to do business with us.
We believe being the most consistent and innovative risk partner will see us build the strongest partnerships with customers and partners but, importantly, it will also see us deliver more value.

At QBE, we have been playing an active role in the communities in which we operate since our founding. In 2011, the QBE Insurance Group formalised its community work by launching the QBE Foundation.
The Foundation’s philosophy is to support charities that help people overcome disadvantages, strengthen their abilities, and help them live more independently, successfully and productively.
Our objectives include making a difference in key areas that align with QBE’s vision and values. We also seek to drive employee engagement by developing networking and a strong team-based culture. We strive to maximise the return and impact for any collection, distribution and allocation of philanthropic resources.
Since its establishment, the QBE Foundation has donated more than VND200 million to local charity organisations in Vietnam. Through the Foundation's initiatives, QBE aims to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children, youth and the elderly.
