Insurance Corporation of India IPO details have been released, and we will go over every detail you need to know about the LIC IPO.
Let’s get this call started without further delay.
Life Insurance Corporation of India
India’s largest insurance company is the LIC. It has a market share of more than 66.2 percent in terms of new business premium. Unit-linked insurance products, saving insurance plans, term life insurance products, medical insurance, and defined benefit & pension products are among the company’s participating and non-participating insurance products.
On September 30, 2021, it had a total AUM of Rs. 39 lakh crores listed. There are 2048 branch offices, 113 divisional office spaces, and 1,554 satellite offices in the LIC network. Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Fiji, Mauritius, Bangladesh, Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Kingdom are among the countries where it has offices.
Reasons for the LIC IPO LIC is experiencing low new policy growth as it continues to lose market share to private insurers, especially in urban areas.One of the reasons for the IPO’s opening is that insurance and investment products have a very low profit margin.
Because its business model is unlike any other, valuing LIC is extremely difficult. LIC takes money up front with the promise of later reimbursement to policyholders. They do not earn money from the premiums they collect (which are half insurance and half investment).
