It has a presence in 18 markets including mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Australia, Indonesia and India.

In 2014, AIA signed a sponsorship deal with the Tottenham Hotspur professional soccer team in the English Premier League. The AIA logo appears on the club's uniform in all matches until 2019, by which the company intends to enhance its brand worldwide.
