Anbang Insurance has revealed it will buy a 20.5% stake worth HK$7.8 billion (about US$1 billion) in Chinese property developer Sino Ocean Land in the latest push by China’s insurance industry into real estate, South China Morning Post reported, citing a filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Insurance companies have emerged as a major force in real estate investment in recent years as authorities eased investment regulations for the sector.
