  • Chan Kin-por, GBS, JP (Chinese: 陳健波; born 1954, China with family roots in Chaozhou, Guangdong) is a member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong (Functional constituency, Insurance). He is chairman of the Legco Finance Committee. Known as 'KP', he grew up in a poor family in a squatter area in Wong Tai Sin, and didn't go to university, instead taking a job in the insurance industry. After serving as the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong office of Munich Re for four years, Chan became a member of the Munich Re China Advisory Board and focused on his Legislative Council role. Prior to that, he was the Assistant General Manager and Head of Insurance Group of Hang Seng Bank. He was chair of the for two years from 1998, and of the from 2004 to 2005. In 2008, he won a seat in the Legislative Council, representing the (insurance) functional constituency, after incumbent Bernard Chan stood down. In the run-up to the 23 June 2010 Legco vote on the Hong Kong government's 2009 reform package, he offered his support if it included the Democratic Party's compromise proposal to have the five new district council functional constituency seats returned by popular election. In 2015, the legislator, who was elected unopposed to his functional constituency seat, criticised the electoral regime in Hong Kong for filibustering pro-democratic legislators when speaking in favour of appropriations for the new IT Bureau, saying "everyone knows Hong Kong's elections are weird, and a prospective candidate can get elected with only 20–30 thousand votes". Chan defended the fact that he was unopposed at Legislative Council elections, saying that people ought not to underestimate functional consistencies. He suggested he was elected because chief executives of over a hundred insurance companies – the corporate votes making up the majority of his constituency – knew exactly who does things properly. In October 2015, he was appointed chair of the Finance Committee, drawing praise and criticism for restricting procedural delays by pan-democratic councillors.
