Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) continued to grow at a faster pace compared to private insurance players, shows the data from the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (Irdai). Market participants say that, growth in insurance was largely due to the surge in group non-single business and individual single premium business in the April-August period.

Tarun Chugh, MD and CEO, Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance said, “Despite the market volatility, we have had a positive swing in our growth numbers, and this not only reiterates our customers trust in the brand, but is also reflective of how life insurance is now being viewed by them. “It’s interesting to see that the industry has been able to make stable growth in these times, yet again indicating that for long term life goals, life insurance is one of the strongest investments to make, no matter how the markets are doing.”

First year premiums for Bajaj Allianz for the period of April-August stood at Rs 1,728.41 crore as against Rs 1,433.23 crore in the previous financial year, indicating a growth of 20.60%.
