Private insurers continue strong growth in May, smaller ones gain more
Posted on 13th June 2019
That Life Insurance Corporation of (LIC) India is losing market share to private insurers hand over fist over the last several years is well known.

The insurance behemoth’s market share in adjusted individual business premium was 42.4% in May, a decline from the previous month.

Analysts at Kotak Securities noted that LIC reported 3% decline in retail annualised premium equivalent.

But the battle within the private sector life insurance pie is getting interesting with smaller players gaining heft. The latest monthly business data from the insurance regulator shows that smaller insurance players such as India First Life Insurance, Canara HSBC Life Insurance and Tata AIA Life Insurance have grown exponentially in the month of May.

Of course, a low base has contributed to the high percentage growth. Even so, Tata AIA Life has managed to garner a higher share in the market. “A low base and focus on ULIPs coupled with moderate appetite for equity investments were the likely reasons," said analysts at Kotak Securities.

That said, the top three insurers—SBI Life Insurance Co, HDFC Standard Life and ICICI Prudential Life Insurance still hold a lion’s share of the private sector life insurance market.

ICICI PruLife has seen its annualised premium equivalent (APE) growth collapse over the last several months. This stems from the change in approach by the management after the life insurer’s leadership change last year.

ICICI PruLife has consciously focussed on small ticket sized policies and begun to stay away from selling bulky products. As are result, its market share has come down marginally while the growth rate of its retail portfolio was a mere 1% in May.

Rival HDFC Standard Life has reported a surge in growth to 59% in May for retail APE. Even SBI Life Insurance Co saw its retail APE growth surge to 37%.

LIC, however, continues to dwarf others in group business segment with a market share of over 80%.

Maharashtra: BJP afraid MLAs may defect, says NCP’s Nawab Malik
Posted on 16th November 2019
The Maharashtra BJP is bedevilled by the trepidation that politicians who joined the party ahead of the October 21 Assembly polls will defect and, hence, its leaders are claiming they will form government in the state, the NCP said on Saturday.

SAT pulls up Sebi for 'shabby' handling of complaints from investor
Posted on 16th November 2019
The Securities and Appellate Tribunal (SAT) has hauled up the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) for giving computer-generated response to investor complaints filed on its online platform Scores and for disposing of the matter without settling the case.

“We find the approach adopted by Sebi to be a strange one. Such computer-generated disposal of a serious complaint speaks volumes on the conduct in treating the minority shareholders in this shabby manner,” the tribunal said while delivering a judgment on a matter related to an investor complaint.

Posted on 16th November 2019
The Supreme Court on Friday brought down the curtains on an epic battle for debt-laden Essar Steel, paving the entry of the world’s largest steel maker, ArcelorMittal, into the second-biggest steel market, India.

In a ruling that would have a far-reaching impact on cases under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC), the apex court has set aside the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) order that put a different class of creditors — financial vis-a-vis operational creditors as also secured and unsecured financial creditors — on a par.
