The original Finance and Insurance (F&I) product offered in the U.S. in the late 60’s early 70’s was Credit Life and Accident and Health Insurance. This was a product that was sold to people who financed their vehicle at the Dealership. The Credit Life coverage paid off a vehicle if the insured became deceased. The Disability portion of the coverage made the monthly payments to the insured in the event they were disabled and not able to work. The same applies for the Health portion. If the insured becomes sick and not able to work, the monthly payment would be paid by the insurance. The second product to be introduced was the Mechanical Service Contract. This product became popular in the late 70’s early 80’s. This product provides coverage to the vehicle outside of the warranty coverage provide by the manufacturer of the vehicle. The Mechanical Service Contract is today still the most important product sold by the Dealer. It provides very important income and also ties the consumer to the Dealership for additional repair work. Credit Life Accident and Health Insurance and Mechanical Service Contracts from the mid 70’s forward were joined by Rustproofing and Undercoating which were also sold to the consumer from the Dealer. These products were designed to inhibit vehicles from rusting and to keep the vehicle quieter from road noise. Most of the F&I product were typically sold by the salesman who sold the consumer the vehicle. In the early 80’s F&I became more sophisticated in the U.S. and a separate department was formed to sell these product, making one person responsible for handling the financing and selling these F&I products. State of F&I In the U.S./China Opportunities As Dealers in the U.S. became more focused on developing more F&I income the demand for more products became higher. Today there are many different products offered. Appearance Protection keeps vehicles looking new for years by protecting both the interiors and exteriors of vehicles including paint, fabric, carpet, vinyl and leather. GAP Insurance is also known as Guaranteed Auto Protection or Guaranteed Asset Protection and as GAP within the North American financial industry. GAP insurance covers the difference between the actual cash value of a vehicle and the balance still owed on the financing (car loan, lease, etc.). VIN Etching most commonly involves the use of a stencil and an acidic etching paste to engrave a vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) onto the windshield and windows. Should a thief try to sell the parts from a vehicle for profit, those marked parts carry a higher risk for both the thief and the auto parts seller. Since automotive glass generally have no identification numbers, and are often interchangeable between many different years and models of vehicle, there is usually a much greater profit for the thief compared to other components on the vehicle. If a car's windows are stamped with the VIN, thieves would need to discard the glass before parting out the stolen vehicle, thus reducing or eliminating their profit. State of F&I In the U.S./China Opportunities Tire & Wheel Protection program provides coverage in the event of damage to a consumers tires or wheels as a result of metal, nails, glass, debris, potholes, blowouts, etc. (excluding cosmetic damage). Consumer does not need to worry about unnecessary financial hardship in the event of damage due to a road hazard. Damaged tire(s) will be replaced, not plugged or patched. Tires and Rims especially on higher end vehicles Mercedes Benz, BMW, etc, are extremely expensive. Lease Wear & Tear Protection eliminates the worry of additional expenses at lease turn-in time. Many of the risks incurred from driving a car, such as the small dents and dings that happen in parking lots, chipped paint or even worn tires, are the owner's financial responsibility at the end of the lease term. Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is an industry recognized repair process that involves the removal of hail dents or other types of damage from a vehicle’s exterior surface panels without disturbing the finish. This procedure involves the use of specialized tools to apply pressure to the backside of the damaged panel to remove surface imperfections. State of F&I In the U.S./China Opportunities F&I Menus As more and more products became available for F&I Departments to sell, it became difficult for F&I Managers to present all of the products to every consumer. To help manage this problem Software programs were developed to help assist F&I managers to present this wide array of products This software was come to be known as Menu software. Menu software made presentations to consumer more streamlined and effective and allowed a way for the Dealership to present monthly payment options to the consumer with Menu options State of F&I In the U.S./China Opportunities Closing The potential F&I market in China will be influenced by the percentage of people who finance their vehicle. Since only 10 percent of car purchases are financed by loans in China, a product like GlassCoat would be an excellent first step into the F&I arena in China because of its high impact to the consumer and affordable price to the Chinese consumer who is paying cash for the vehicle. Also the Chinese consumer has a very high regard for their vehicle, maintaining it as good as they can in light off not a lot of opportunities for car washes or readily available cleaning products. The word "worship" is used a lot when describing the ownership experience. If The Chinese consumer could take care of their vehicle with a U.S. Branded chemistry and a China Life insured warranty for a fair price we believe it would be a well received option to the Chinese consumer. State of F&I In the U.S./China Opportunities However growth potential of additional F&I products is solidly in China’s Future. It is estimated that finance opportunities could reach 30% of car sales by 2017. Hyundai has just created a finance arm in China in conjunction with Beijing Hyundai Auto Finance Co. with an initial capital of 500 million yuan ($79 million). Beijing Automotive Industry Group will hold the remainder. General Motors, Volkswagen, and Toyota already have finance arms in China. Major F&I companies in the U.S. have insurance routes. Zurich, Virginia Surety, Great American Insurance, AON, Protective, and Allstate all have made solid investments into the F&I market. China Life with proper partnerships could be a pioneer for F&I products and service in China.
