  • Insurance industry needs to realign its goals with the needs of insured | The Financial Express
    banking correspondents and points of sale If their services were involved the results could be mind boggling From the above it can be assumed that the banks which entered into tie ups would have expected fee based income but in reality many of them would have been disappointed and may perhaps opt out of the arrangement This will require insurers to undertake aggressive plan of training at least one fifth employees of the branches in features of the products and selling skills The banks also need to accept insurance selling as separate channel when accountability and rewards go hand in hand The insurance industry has been focusing insurance as investment product while it needs to realign its goals with the needs of insured The postal department which also sells insurance products could be equally involved in selling for multiple insurance companies on the same pattern as banks to take advantage of its reach Innovations in approach The focus on single premium may help garner enhanced market share but it deprives the policyholder and the agent of the benefits in meeting emerging requirements of a customer s life cycle like children s education marriage health and pension There is a need to evolve policies which could take care of additional requirement of insurance without undergoing medical examination Persistency has been an issue Therefore to motivate policyholders the insurance industry should provide for periodic health check up at an interval of two years or so as an inducement thus inducing them to continue policies and become alert about emerging health issues likely to be faced by them Student assurance It is well known that 65 of the population today is less than 35 years of age but totally alienated from the industry Mis selling has caused maximum damage The insurance industry should join hands with the financial services sector like SEBI NSE BSE to offer awareness programmes in schools and colleges It could also tie up with schools for studentassurance on same lines as bancassurance to offer insurance products from the entry level itself Rural insurance The concept of insurance of crops on the basis of meteorological data has to be implemented throughout the country to protect the farmers and stem the tide of rising suicides Similarly vulnerable segments of the society will not be able to afford insurance on their own as proved from the persistency ratio of the micro insurance products Therefore the Company s Act need to be amended to provide for payment of premium as CSR actively Apart from this where a drought is declared for financial assistance the farmers of certain category can be exempted from payment of premium which can be met from same fund as relief These changes could bring a substantial growth in the industry By RR Grover The writer is advisor Amity School of Insurance Banking Actuarial Science Amity University With inputs from Praveen Telu MBA Insurance Banking Shivam Tewari M Sc Actuarial Science First Published on January 26 2016 12 02 am
