In FY23, systemic credit showed strong growth on the back of pent-up retail demand from sectors such as housing and auto. Credit demand also grew due to strong demand from NBFCs and the trade segment. Overall credit grew by an estimated 13.3% and systemic retail credit by 19.2%. NBFCs have shown remarkable resilience and have gained prominence in the financial sector ecosystem. Their share in the overall credit pie increased to 18% in fiscal 2023 from 12% in fiscal 2008. Over the years, NBFCs have consolidated their position as a key intermediary in the Indian financing sector with differentiated offerings such as niche financing, last-mile connectivity and an alternative to bank financing. With respect to liabilities, NBFCs have become increasingly interconnected with the financial system. The COVID-19 pandemic, the consequent acceleration in the adoption of technology and change in consumer habits, and the increasing availability of data for credit decision-making have supported the further acceleration of retail credit growth. Revival of economic activity, pent-up demand, strong export, and domestic support have strengthened credit growth in the MSME segment. The market share of NBFCs in outstanding MSME loans (including LAP) was 25% in FY 2022 and is estimated to have increased to 27% in FY23. In terms of growth, NBFCs witnessed a CAGR of 21% between fiscals 2017 and 2023, compared to 8% for other players. Going forward, NBFCs are expected to continue to witness rapid growth and increase their market share in this segment.

Diversification within savings products, driven by product innovation, changing customer preferences and evolving regulations, has resulted in private life insurers shiƒing focus from a largely unit-linked dominated product mix to a more diversified one. The pandemic also heightened awareness regarding the importance of insurance and long-term wealth creation, prompting further diversification in the savings segment.

Over the last few years, private insurers have strengthened their efforts in the under-penetrated protection segment. Focus on the retirement space has also increased, given the market opportunity. In FY2023, there was a significant shiƒ towards traditional business for private players, with a focus on non par savings and protection. Both these segments were popular in FY23, given the fact that there is hardly any substitute for long-term insurance products that addresses the risk of loss of life (term protection) and risk of loss of income/longevity risk (annuities, guaranteed products). This is also accentuated by the fact that in uncertain times, people prefer to have certainty when it comes to their savings. New alternatives like return of premium products, value-added riders and combo products are getting launched. These additions, combined with awareness campaigns, are expected to liƒ growth in the retail protection segment. On the distribution mix front, there has been a distinct shiƒ with Bancassurance emerging as the primary distribution channel among private sector insurers. This shiƒ is driven by the captive customer base and by leveraging the widespread network of bank branches. Currently, with the use of analytics and automated underwriting, insurance companies are collaborating with banks to provide customised offers, which are then integrated into bank systems to create a differentiating factor and improved experience for the customer.

Life insurance companies continue to focus on digital and direct channels given the tremendous growth potential. There has been an increase in the number of web aggregators in the recent years, and several insurance companies have demonstrated a growing interest in listing their products on aggregator portals and websites.

The new products launched in last 12 months contributed to 27% of the overall Individual first year premium for FY23.

Adopting a digital mindset

Keeping pace with new technology is essential for any organisation focusing on faster deliveries, reduced spending, and enhanced customer experience. The three-to-five-year digital transformation plan depends on creating a culture of continuous learning and required that employees develop a digital mindset.

Higher digital adoption by customers and distributors requires insurers to develop strong technological capabilities and highly efficient platforms, which are powered by analytics, automation, and Artificial Intelligence. Seamless integration of these platforms and processes with the partners systems is necessary. Customers expectation of personalised and improved service experience can be addressed using AI, cloud computing, Machine Learning algorithms and bots.

Industry performance

Indias health insurance industry has seen significant growth in recent years, driven by the rising awareness about the need for health insurance, rising healthcare costs, and government initiatives to promote insurance coverage. The General Insurance industry has been growing at a 3-year CAGR of 11% in FY23, while the health insurance industry grew by 21% y-o-y to _97,681 Crore in FY23. The industry is expected to see this growth momentum continue, driven by a growing middle class, increasing life expectancy, and rising healthcare costs. The Government of India also has a significant role to play in the health insurance industry. It has launched initiatives such as Ayushman Bharat, a programme that has helped increase insurance coverage among the lower-income population and has also created opportunities for both SAHIs and general insurance companies (GIC) to expand their market share. The government has also embarked on a mission of "Insurance for All" by 2047. As the government transitions from being a provider of health services to a funder of health services, the growth of the health insurance sector is imperative in the short and medium term. New products and innovations in currently unfunded areas are also expected to pick up growth momentum.

Industry structure

The health insurance industry in India consists of 29 players, of which 5 are standalone health insurance companies (SAHI) monoline companies that offer only health insurance–and 24 multiline general insurance companies (GIC) that offer health insurance along with other insurance products such as fire, marine, motor and liability, among others. The GICs comprises of 20 private players and 4 government-owned players. The gross premium of SAHI players increased by 26% y-o-y, government GICs increased by 16%, and private GICs increased by 25% y-o-y in FY23. The market share of SAHI players in the Health Insurance segment was 27%, while those of private GICs and government-owned GICs were 31% and 42% respectively in FY23. The market share of SAHI players increased by 94 basis points in the year. Health Insurance has the following broad customer segments: i) Group segment for Corporates with a share of ~ 48% dominated by public sector undertakings (PSU) insurers; ii) Retail segment with a share of ~ 43%, which has seen relatively higher growth, and iii) Government segment with a share of ~ 9% of the industry.


The Indian health insurance industry is undergoing a digital transition as an outcome of technology adoption across different sectors. The adoption and application of AI and ML have drastically improved various facets of the industry. New digital technologies are changing the way customers interact with insurers. The regulator is also leading the digital push with the proposed a one-stop Portal for digital policy sales (Bima Sugam). The portal is on the lines of a marketplace with the consumers, distributors, and manufacturers coming together at one place. This is expected to bring more transparency and choice to the consumer in the long run and will help attract more consumers leading to lower distribution costs. Health insurance continues to be one of the fastest growing segments in the entire General insurance space. The high growth potential and richer valuations have prompted GI players to increase investments in the health space. Leading GI players continue to invest in the health insurance sector through higher investments in the Agency channel. The digital players are also expected to increase their focus in this sector. Health insurance penetration in the country is still at a minuscule level due to limited reach, and lack of awareness and education.

This consequent burden is borne by people themselves, and they are not covered by any government or private health insurance scheme. Owing to high demand, public and private players are increasing their offerings and improving the quality of service, to dominate the market. The players are focusing on scaling up their businesses and portfolios to address the high potential of the market. Digital innovations, new product and customer segments and efficient provider networks will continue to drive health insurance growth in the country.


ABHIs business model is driven by the ‘Health First approach, differentiated core offerings and health data-based risk interventions and hyper-personalisation.

‘Health First approach: ABHIs purpose is to ‘Empower and motivate families to prioritise their health and live fulfilling lives. As a new-age player in the health insurance industry, ABHIs focus has been to attract relatively health-conscious customers with unique ‘wellness-based product proposition that incentivises customers to maintain good health and staying fit. To achieve this, ABHI has created a unique Health First business model that focuses on ‘buy and engage, which aims to involve policyholders through health and wellness interactions; influence policyholders to lead healthier lifestyles by rewarding good health through industry-first 100% return of premium, while also funding healthcare expenses. The company with customers consent collects 360o health data to generate a unique well-being score. This model is strengthened via a wellness ecosystem and care manager-led model that ensures a seamless claims process.

Differentiated core offerings: ABHI offers a wide range of wellness programmes and incentives that encourage policyholders to adopt healthy habits. The differentiated core offerings are centred around incentivised wellness to reward customers for practising good health behaviours. ABHI HealthReturnsTM programme, an industry-first offerings of up to 100% return of premium, has been well-received in the market. It offers a comprehensive product suite catering to all customer segments. This includes offerings ranging from small ticket byte-sized products to global health coverage products, enabling market expansion and targeting newer customer segments to include younger customers and those with lifestyle-related conditions. ABHI is constantly working towards customer segmentation and mapping of customers and distributors by leveraging data enrichment and analytics across the Customer Life-Time Value (CLTV) to identify the right product offerings.

Health data-based risk interventions and hyper-personalisation: ABHIs health and wellness framework emphasises a holistic approach to ‘health management, disease prevention and wellness management. In FY23, the Company scaled up the health proposition by in-housing the health score stratification. This significantly increased analytical capabilities and further enabled the multifold scale up of our ‘Health First proposition. The total number of customers with a Well-being Score has increased to more than 12.8 Lakh as of March 31, 2023.


ABHI continues to be the fastest-growing SAHI player. The gross written premium (GWP) of ABHI increased by 57% y-o-y to _2,717 Crore in FY23. The market share among SAHI players was up by 208 basis points to 10.4% in FY23. The retail business (incl. rural) contributed to 59% of GWP in FY23, of which 87% was issued through auto underwriting. The net loss of ABHI decreased to _220 Crore in FY23 from _311 Crore in FY22. ABHI continues to make investments towards funding new business growth, creation of new distribution networks and increasing product offerings.

The distribution channel is the backbone for the Company to reach the customers. The Company has the most diverse distribution mix among our peers, with the Proprietary channel distribution mix being the largest one at 27%. Agency growth agenda is imperative for us. The Companys agent network has grown significantly, with 85,000 agents–an increase of 35% from FY22. The entire agency expansion has been facilitated through the One ABC branch expansion programme, leading to cost efficiency and access to the agents of One ABC. Additionally, we are investing in the One ABC Select Agents programme to enhance agent vintage and productivity. During the year, the Company increased the strength of its sales force from 3,000+ to 4,000+ people. The increase will help it to grow multifold during FY23.

The Company has distribution tie-ups with 15 private banks and two PSU banks. During FY23, the Company entered into partnerships with three private banks and two PSU banks. The Company continues to focus on gaining access to higher number of private bancassurance partnerships to further increase our distribution reach in the bancaassurance channel.

The Company is a pioneer in the byte and contextual space with tie-ups across unique distribution platforms. The proposed EOM guidelines/Commission guidelines have created short term disruptions. ABHI believes in the potential of its differenciated health insurace model and the growth prospects of the industry in the medium to long term.

In the Group segment, the focus of the Company is to write value-accretive Group business. The focus is to write medium-size business bundled with Cross Sell and Upsell opportunities. The Company has diversified its Group portfolio through the SME and Creditor business. It is also leveraging new client segments, including large corporates and SMEs, for business.

Digital channel for acquisition

ABHI continues to invest in customer and distribution digital assets, which are core to its operations. Further, the basic premise of ABHIs differentiated operating model continues to be its focus on hyper- personalised customer engagement by leveraging digital capabilities. This requires the Company to further invest in the digital health ecosystem on which we continue to remain focused. The Company has launched a freemium version of its digital Activ Health App in FY23 which will enable customers to experience ABHIs wellness offerings including the "Well-being Score" at scale. This freemium version of the app provides wellness benefits through a combination of free and discounted offerings. It is expected to increase customer engagement and enable the Company to expand its wellness offerings and broaden the health ecosystem.

The Company continues to focus on key health segments for our differentiated ‘Health First model. The key customer segments identified by the Company are:

(1) The relatively health conscious: During the year, the Company launched an industry-first millennial product called Activ Health targeting the millennial segment. It provides industry-first features of face-scan-based discounts and early-age discounts for the customers. The product has been well received by customers since its launch across all major distribution channels.

(2) People with lifestyle diseases: This focuses on those who are typically denied insurance benefits. Through the Chronic Management Plan, the Company has made a successful foray into this segment.

(3) Products for the salaried segment: The bancassurance channel provides ready access to a large pool of salaried class customers. Simplified customer journeys along with product proposition have been designed to cater to the specific needs of customer of this target segment.


Healthcare today is one of Indias largest sectors, both in terms of revenue and employment. It is growing at a remarkable pace due to increased digital adoption, wide coverage, increasing variety of services, and rising expenditure by public as well as private players. With challenges in other retail lines of business, general insurers have aggressively started pursuing the health opportunity.

Sustained growth strategy

Going forward, ABHI will continue with its differentiated ‘Health First approach for better risk selection and risk pool management, leading to lower claims for engaged customers. The Company continue to expand a diversified distribution that utilises conventional and new-age digital platforms to deliver economies of scale. The Company will continue to leverage the co-located branch infrastructure, variabalised agency model and increased branch presence across bancassurance partners. In addition to physical footprint, it will leverage the internal synergies with Aditya Birla Capital Digital to increase customer base.

Combined ratio management

ABHIs combined ratio improved to 110% in FY23, from 126% in FY22. It follows a three-pronged approach to manage the combined ratio:

1. Pricing and sourcing management: The prices of products have been increased in line with market & claims experience across flagship products across all channels and partners. Underwriting guidelines have been further strengthened with telephonic and video interview (Tele/Video MER) across specific customer segments. The Fraud, Waste and Abuse (FWA) triggers have been enhanced to further identify FWA. Cashless claims now account for significant part of total claims, enabling better case management opportunities as compared to reimbursement claims. The adoption of digital platforms has further enhanced case management capabilities.

2. Robust claims and provider management: ABHI continues to focus on better Provider Network Management with consistent focus on improving network coverage, higher package rates vs open rates, continuous review of network hospitals and blacklisting hospitals with FWA tendencies.

3. Expense management: ABHI uses various initiatives such as scaling up agency network with variable pay, resource sharing based on geography, and commercial renegotiations with partners based on actual claims experience.

Indian stock market has seen volatile in FY23 amid aggressive monetary policy stance by global central banks, the Russia-Ukraine war, high inflation, and outflows from overseas funds. Niƒy and Niƒy Midcap 100 were flat in FY23 while the small-cap was down by 4%. Despite all these challenges, India was still the second-best performer among the emerging markets in FY23 aƒer South Africa. The outperformance was mainly because of _2.6 trillion net inflows from domestic institutional investors compared to around _2 trillion outflows by Foreign institutional investors. Retail broking businesses continue to improve their market share through digital initiatives. The rise of discount brokers has made it easy to invest in financial markets via zero brokerage, e-KYC and user-friendly mobile-based platforms which has made stock buying as seamless and intuitive as shopping online. Quick and paperless onboarding, UPI-based fund transfers, and a stable and scalable product have enabled equity participation for every Indian. The number of demat accounts in India rose to _11.4 Crore in March 2023 from _9 Crore in March 2022, registering a growth of 27%. Penetration of demat accounts in India increased from 6.4% to 8.1% on a YoY basis. During FY23, the flat to lower market has caused cash volume to correct by almost 20% YoY to _53,564 Crore ADTO, while derivative ADTO more than doubled to _152 trillion.


The Company recorded Revenue from Operations of _267 Crore for the year ended 31st March 2023 as compared to _233 Crore during the previous year, an increase of 14% led by higher broking and interest income. The Profit aƒer Tax stood at _47 Crore for the year ended 31st March 2023 as compared to _36 Crore in previous financial year, an increase of 31%.


With the on-going global macro challenges and a reasonable base of FY23, Indias GDP growth is likely to slow its pace next year. RBI expects Indias GDP to grow by 6.5% for FY24, with growth expected to be strong in Q1 and then gradually taper for the balance of quarters. On the Inflation front, though crude oil and commodity prices have corrected, their future trajectories remain uncertain, as revival in demand from countries recovering from pandemic could result into upswing. The broking industry has gone through a significant transformation over the years. Amongst the key changes are massive digitisation, focus on value-added services and a move from transactional to fee-based revenue models. The industry has seen higher volumes from retail investors post the pandemic when the market was in a bull run, but whether the pace will continue in a sideways or a bear market will be key to watch. However, the financialisation of savings and equitisation of financial savings is still at a very nascent stage with a demat account penetration of just about 8.1%. The Company will continue to focus on technology, drive client acquisition, increase its business partner network, rationalise cost and provide efficient trading tools and value-added research recommendations to its clients. The overall strategic focus is to create product and service differentiators across all segments. However, any stringent regulations from SEBI regarding such as client float, options trading, etc. shall have a bearing on the retail broking industry.

Aditya Birla Insurance Brokers Limited (ABIBL) is a leading composite general insurance intermediary, licenced by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDA). The Company specialises in providing general insurance broking and risk-management solutions for corporate and individuals alike. The Company also offer reinsurance solutions to insurance companies and have developed enduring relationships with Indian and global insurers operating in India, South Asia, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.


The Indian insurance industry earned a total premium of _ 6.3 lakh Crore for FY23 of which Rs. _3.7 lakh Crore were from Life Insurance segment (First year premium) and _2.6 lakh Crore were from the General Insurance segment. The sheer size and growth potential due to low penetration and growing economy makes it one of the most attractive investment opportunities. However, penetration and density have remained low, indicating the need to address challenges, which impede growth. Gross Premium underwritten by the Non-Life Insurers in India has grown by 16% from _2,20,700 Crore in FY22 to _2,56,912 Crore in FY23 (Source: GIC Council). Health insurance continues to be the largest insurance segment buoyed by a growth in Group Health Premiums (26% YoY), Govt. Health schemes (41% YoY) and Retail Health (15% YoY). Hence the top 4 contributors in Non-Life Industry Premium were Health Insurance, Motor Insurance (OD & TP), Crop Insurance and Fire Insurance segments respectively with about 35%, 32%, 12% and 9% share respectively. While Property segment showed a YoY growth of 11%, Health segment showed a robust YoY growth of 23% mainly on account of hardened premiums due to high claims made on the Group Insurance front coupled with sustained demand for retail Health Insurance Policies and increased government spending on Health Insurance. Motor Insurance bounced back with 15% growth with rebound in automotive sales post resolution of the industry wide semi- conductor shortage challenge. (Source: GI Council).


ABIBLs overall premium shrank by 2% from _5,687 Crore to _5,598 Crore and revenue shrank by 11% from _691 Crore to _618 Crore; however profitability (PBT) increased by 13% from _86 Crore to _97 Crore, another record high on account of improved margins in the Retail & Reinsurance segment due to cost efficiencies and higher productivity.


Insurance broking is the only channel, which represents customers and not insurers. The unique role of the broking channel is recognised by the regulator, insurers and customers. Despite the robust growth over the years, penetration and density have continued to remain low and impede higher growth, indicating the need to address challenges. Although the broking channel is still evolving it is currently the only channel that continues to meet risk management requirements of customers comprehensively.

ABIBL places strong emphasis on retention of its clients across the Corporate, Retail & Reinsurance lines of business. Various initiatives have been implemented for enhancing corporate business by targeting large corporate clients through its sector specific approach. Further ABIBL has been utilising the post- covid scenario to capitalise and build on its digital assets which are used across all the lines of business by several stakeholders.
