Individual WRP for private players grows 3% YoY in October 22

* The Individual weighted received premium (WRP) for private players grew 3% YoY in Oct’22 (a three-year CAGR of 13.3%, up 6.5% in Sep’22). The same for the industry grew 3.1% YoY in Oct’22 (a three-year CAGR of 8.7%, up 3.6% in Sep’22). Over AprOct’22, Individual WRP for private players grew 17.9% YoY (a three-year CAGR of 12.3%).

* All the listed players reported weak trends with SBILIFE reporting a muted growth of 6.3% in Oct’22 (a three-year CAGR of 17.3%), while MAXLIFE posted a muted decline of 0.2% (a three-year CAGR of 14.2%). HDFCLIFE/IPRU posted a higher decline of 13.1%/25.6% YoY (a three-year CAGR of 15.3%/-10.5%), respectively.

* Among mid-sized players, Tata AIA/Bajaj Allianz/Birla Sun Life reported a strong 67%/28%/15% YoY growth (a three-year CAGR of 33.0%/28.5%/13.4%), respectively. Kotak Life reported a decline of 2.1% YoY (a three-year CAGR of 11.1%).

* LIC grew 3.5% YoY in Individual WRP (a three-year CAGR of 2.5%, a decline of 1.7% in Sep’22). Over Apr-Oct’22, Individual WRP for LIC grew 13.5% YoY (a three-year CAGR of 5.1%).

* After reporting a healthy growth initially in FY23, the industry is witnessing moderation over the past few months. We expect growth to pick up gradually, given the demand for Annuity and Non-PAR policies, and a recovery in the Protection and ULIP business, given healthy performance of capital markets. SBI Life is our preferred idea.
