    INTRODUCTION

    Since the evolution of mankind, the need for biological and physical fulfillmenthas emerged. Over the long span of development of mankind there is a very highadvancement in technological and industrial growth. In the beginning of 20 th century, Worldhas faced two major revolutionary wars World War I and World War II. These have changedthe world into global village gradually.

    Due to advancement and growth in population has simultaneously increased thedemand for physical need. Availability of options has increased competition among people.These have led to need of proper financial planning. Emergence of investment option ismainly driven by peoples social and demographic variables as described below.

    Needs are generally classified into protection needs and investment needs.Protection needs refers to the needs that have to be primarily taken care of, to protect the

    living standard , current requirements and survival requirements of investors. Need for regularincomes, need for retirement income and need for insurance cover are protection need.Investment needs are additional financial needs that have to be served through saving and

    2investment. These are needs for childrens education, hosing and childrens professionalgrowth.

    In Indian insurance sector was totally reserved for public sector companies likeLIC, GIC etc. with the opening up of the economy, a score of MNCs have come in the market

    with Indian business houses resulting in client friendly, healthy competition and rivalry in theinsurance sector. Good old days have gone, where only LIC agents were seen knocking doorsof potential clients.

    The policies floated by the government insurance companies where primarilymeant to cover risk but in todays market, the policies are having predominantly a major partof investment option with high rate of return.

    One of the major challenge for all private companies is to develop a strong salesteam, since LIC who enjoyed a monopoly in this sector before it was opened for private

    players has a network of 2,50,000 agents.

    REASONS FOR SELECTING AN INSURANCE SECTOR

    FOR RESEARCH

    Life Insurance Sector acts as a backbone of any economy. This sector

    polls large funds from masses and then invests in the infrastructure projects as well as other

    long term projects, which will generate a regular income flow in the coming years.

    Traditionally life insurance was taken just as a security product but now it is gaining

    importance as an investment product. Hence, now if you want to sell life insurance product to

    7

  • 7/31/2019 Icici Prudential nitin 8305394430

    8/32

    2anyone, you have to analyze his/her life stage, risk preference, priorities and then suggest the

    appropriate product to that investor.

    The insurance sector needs a great deal of financial planning, knowledge,

    as well as knowledge about other financial products and their current markets so that we can

    compare those products with the insurance product and convince the client. Insurance

    companies also have to manage their investment in such a way that the principal amount

    should not erode, and the investor should get assured returns which the company has

    promised. This involves a great deal of knowledge about portfolio management and hedging

    of risk. Thus this would give us great exposure to financial markets as well as the intricacies

    of different financial institutions, how they work and what difficulties they face.

    What Is Insurance ?

    Being a social animal and risk averse, man always tries to reduce risk. Anage-old method of sharing of risk through economic cooperation led to the development ofthe concept of insurance.

    Insurance is not necessarily an investment from which one expects to getone's money back. Nor is it gambling. A gambler takes risks, while insurance offers

    protection against risks that already exist. Insurance is a way to share risk with others. Sinceancient times, communities have pooled some of their resources to help individuals whosuffer loss.

    Insurance is a contract between two parties whereby one party calledinsurer undertakes in exchange for a fixed sum called premiums, to pay the other party

    called insured a fixed amount of money on the happening of a certain event.

    8

    Insurance is a protection against financial loss arising on the happeningof an unexpected event. Insurance companies collect premiums to provide for this

    protection. A loss is paid out of the premiums collected from the insuring public and the

    Insurance Companies act as trustees to the amount collected.

    For example, in a Life Policy, by paying a premium to the Insurer, the family ofthe insured person receives a fixed compensation on the death of the insured.

    Similarly, in a car insurance, in the event of the car meeting with an accident,the insured receives the compensation to the extent of damage. It is a system by which thelosses suffered by a few are spread over many, exposed to similar risks. Insurance is desiredto safeguard oneself and one's family against possible losses on account of risks and perils. It

    provides financial compensation for the losses suffered due to the happening of any

    unforeseen events.

    By taking life insurance a person can have peace of mind and need not worryabout the financial consequences in case of any untimely death.Certain Insurance contracts are also made compulsory by legislation. For example, MotorVehicles Act 1988, stipulates that a person driving a vehicle in a public place should hold avalid insurance policy covering Act risks. Another example of compulsory insurance

    pertains to the Environmental Protection Act, wherein a person using or carrying hazardoussubstances (as defined in the Act) must hold a valid Public Liability (Act) Policy.

    Principles of Insurance

    Insurance is a 'risk transfer mechanism' - it transfers the financial risks ofeveryday life from you to an insurance company. But only in terms of the financialconsequences of risk. Without insurance, if you car was damaged, it would cost you a lot ofmoney to fix it or to buy another one. It could cost you even more to pay for compensation tosomeone else involved in an accident. Insurance protects your financial interests. It cannotlighten the emotional, humanitarian and sentimental consequences of an accident. But

    properly used, it will protect your financial investment in your car and your legal obligationsshould you have an accident.

    Insurable InterestBefore you can insure anything, you must have a legally recognized financial

    interest in what you are insuring. For motor insurance, you can't take out an insurance policy

    9

  • 7/31/2019 Icici Prudential nitin 8305394430

    10/32

    2on the car driven by the latest film star in the hope that it will crash and you can claim. That isnothing more than gambling. But you can insure the car you own, or drive. You would sufferfinancially if it is damaged or stolen and benefit from its continued existence.

    IndemnityThis word is used to describe the type of payment you would receive. A

    motor policy and a household policy are both a contract of indemnity. It means, subject to theterms of the contract, you are entitled to be put back in the same financial position after a lossas you were in before the loss. A refusal to indemnify is a refusal to pay the claim.

    ContributionIf there is more than one policy in force that you could claim on, you can't

    get payment from them both that would exceed the value of your loss. So each policy wouldcontribute a portion of the loss. You would receive the full value of the loss but no more andthe two policies would only bear part of it each.

    SubrogationThis is the right that your insurer has to recover from someone else where

    you are entitled to do so. For example, if another driver causes damage to your car, and yourinsurers pay for it, subrogation gives them the legal right to 'stand in your shoes' and reclaimtheir outlay from the responsible driver.

    Proximate CauseWhen you seek to claim from your insurers for a property or financial loss

    you must show that the loss was caused as a result of a peril covered by the policy. There

    must be a direct relationship of cause and effect; the cause must be proximate in efficiencybut not necessarily in point of time. There might for example, be a chain of causes in whicheach cause is the natural result of the preceding cause. It is the immediate and not the remotecause which must be considered. The full and classic definition of this principle is given incase law called 'Pawsey V Scottish Union and National Insurance Co (1908)'

    History of Insurance

    Insurance has been around since ancient times. The Babylonians andPhoenicians had ocean marine insurance to protect a merchant against losses incurred when aship did not reach its intended destination with its load of goods or did not return with

    payment. This form of insurance, called Respondentia, evolved because the goods on boardoften were used as collateral for a loan. The lender charged the borrower interest on the loanand levied an additional sum, the premium, to cover the cost of the respondentia contract. Ifthe ship reached its destination and returned, the merchant received payment for the goodsand in turn paid the moneylender. If the ship failed to return, the debt was cancelled. Thissystem was profitable to lenders because many respondentia contracts were sold, and debtswere paid more often than cancelled.

    2In ancient Rome, associations had a form of insurance for their members.

    Each member made regular payments to the association in return for coverage of funeralexpenses or for assistance to family members who were injured or ill.

    Insurance also existed in 17th-century England, which was then one of the

    world's principal maritime powers. Those seeking marine insurance would post a list of theircargo and voyages in a London coffee house owned by Edward Lloyd. Private investorswould examine the list and sign their name by the entries they were willing to guarantee for afee. These private investors were the first insurance underwriters, and the coffee house

    became the world center of marine insurance. Today the organization is known as Lloyds ofLondon, and it brings together individuals, most often working in syndicates, who write alltypes of insurance.

    Insurance in the modern form originated in the Mediterranean during 14thcentury. The earliest references to insurance have been found in Babylonia, the Greeks andthe Romans. The use of insurance appeared in the account of North Italian merchant banks

    who then dominated the international trade in Europe at that time. Marine insurance is theoldest form of insurance followed by life insurance and fire insurance. The patterns that have

    been used in England followed in other countries also in these kinds of insurance

    The oldest and the earliest records of marine policy relates to a Mediterranean

    voyage in 1347. In the year 1400, a book written by a merchant of Florence, indicatespremium rates charged for the shipments by sea from London to Pisa. Marine Insurancespread from Italy to trading routes in other countries of Europe.

    Fire insurance has its origin in Germany where it was introduced in

    municipalities for providing compensation to owners of the property, in return for an annualcontribution, based on the rent of those premises. The fire insurance in its present form startedafter the most disastrous fire in human history known as the 'Great Fire' in London, which haddestroyed several buildings. It drew the attention of the public and the first fire insurancecommercially transacted in 1667. The Industrial Revolution (1720-1850) gave much impetusto fire insurance. The Nineteenth century marked the development of fire insurance.

    Due to the increasing demands of the time, different forms of insurance havebeen developed. Industrial Revolution of 19th century had facilitated the development ofaccidental insurance, theft and dacoity, fidelity insurance, etc. In 20th century, many types ofsocial insurance started operating, viz., unemployment insurance, crop insurance, cattleinsurance, etc. This way the business of insurance developed simultaneously with human andsocial development. Today, the use of computers in the field of insurance is frequentlyincreasing. Insurance becomes an inseparable part of human development.

    The early developments of life insurance were closely linked with that ofmarine insurance. The first insurers of life were the marine insurance underwriters whostarted issuing life insurance policies on the life of master and crew of the ship, and themerchants. The early insurance contracts took the nature of policies for a short period only.The underwriters issued annuities and pension for a fixed period or for life to provide relief towidows on the death of their husbands. The first life insurance policy was issued on 18th

    June 1583, on the life of William Gibbons for a period of 12 months.

    2The history of life insurance in India dates back to 1818 when it was conceived

    as a means to provide for English Widows. Interestingly in those days a higher premium wascharged for Indian lives than the non-Indian lives as Indian lives were considered more riskierfor coverage. The Bombay Mutual Life Insurance Society started its business in 1870. It wasthe first company to charge same premium for both Indian and non-Indian lives. The Oriental

    Assurance Company was established in 1880. The first general insurance company- TitalInsurance Company Limited, was established in 1850. Till the end of nineteenth centuryinsurance business was almost entirely in the hands of overseas companies.

    Insurance regulation formally began in India with the passing of the LifeInsurance Companies Act of 1912 and the Provident Fund Act of 1912. Several frauds during20's and 30's sullied insurance business in India. By 1938 there were 176 insurancecompanies. The first comprehensive legislation was introduced with the Insurance Act of1938 that provided strict State Control over insurance business. The insurance business grewat a faster pace after independence. Indian companies strengthened their hold on this business

    but despite the growth that was witnessed, insurance remained an urban phenomenon.

    The Government of India in 1956, brought together over 240private lifeinsurers and provident societies under one nationalized monopoly corporation and LIC was

    born. Nationalization was justified on the grounds that it would create much needed funds forrapid industrialization. This was in conformity with the Government's chosen path of State-led planning and development.

    DEVELOPMENTS IN INSURANCE SECTOR

    While Direct foreign investment is permitted in several areas of business in India,the insurance industry has been fraught with trouble from the beginning.

    Insurance has been and continues to be a government monopoly. For instance,section 30 of the Life Insurance Corporation Act 1956 expressly provides that the LifeInsurance Corporation of India shall have the exclusive privilege of carrying on life insurance

    business. This monopoly situation also applies to general insurance, although the position isdifferent as regards risk management and reinsurance

    The previous government (The Indian National Congress) appointed the

    12

  • 7/31/2019 Icici Prudential nitin 8305394430

    13/32

    2Malhotra Committee which presented its Report in 1994, making recommendations foropening up the insurance sector. It recommended infer alia that the private sector be calledupon to take some portion of the rural and non-traditional insurance market. It alsorecommended that private foreign companies should enter into Joint ventures, the promoterequity being 40 per cent and the balance held by the public.

    When the present coalition government, the United Front, came to power, as theCentral Government, it introduced its promised Common Minimum Programme. One of theattractions of this programme was the desire to introduce wide ranging changes affecting theinsurance sector, on lines similar to the banking sector

    Based on this manifesto, the following developments took place in 1996 -

    A Bill on the Insurance Regulatory Authority was proposed. It is presently uncertainwhether the Authority will be empowered to invite domestic and foreign investment inthe insurance sector. Of course, the insurance industry cannot be opened up until the

    necessary amendments have been made to the LIC Act 1956 and the GeneralInsurance Business Act 1972. It was expected that this Bill would be debated inDecember 1996. However, considering the strength of opposition to the Bill, and thetime needed to draft new guidelines and issue licences, it is likely to be at least 18months before any changes are implemented. something which foreign insurers havealready taken into account

    The Reserve Bank of India (RBI, the central regulatory bank in India) has in themeantime granted approval to four foreign insurance companies to open liaisonoffices in India. These will act only as channels of communication between parties inIndia and their head offices abroad and are not permitted to undertake any insurance

    business in India.

    As was expected, the existing insurance companies, both at the managerial andemployee level, have strongly opposed and criticized any move to privatize insurance.A lot of criticism has also come from the coalition partners of the United Frontgovernment. There seems to be little support for the move to privatize.

    Informally, and in the belief that change will finally come about, several Indian andforeign insurance companies have been neeotiatinc possible tie-ups in life and generalinsurance business. So far, nearly 18 global insurance majors have signedmemoranda of understanding. It is rumoured in insurance circles that thegovernment is likely to give licences in the initial years only to a handful ofcompaniespossibly only sixThree in life and Three in general insurance business.A considerable amount of market research and product blue print has already beendone.

    The following proposals were included in the 1997 Finance Bill (announced on 28 February1997) -

    13

    14/32

    2 The Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) and the General Insurance Corporation

    of India (GIC) should enjoy substantial autonomy, including the power to make non-scheduled, non-consortium investments.

    LIC should be permitted to promote joint ventures in pensions fund business.

    GIC should be permitted to promote joint ventures in health insurance business.

    Selected Indian companies with majority Indian ownership should be allowed toundertake business in the health insurance sector.

    LIC should continue to enjoy a monopoly in life insurance business and GIC shouldretain a monopoly in non-life, non-health insurance business.

    Comprehensive regulations relating to prudential, investment and social norms shouldbe made and enforced by the Insurance Regulatory Authority for all service providersin the insurance industry.

    Hence, it was decided to allow competition in a limited way by stipulatingthe minimum capital requirement of Rs.100 crores. The committee felt the need to providegreater autonomy to insurance companies in order to improve their performance and enablethem to act as independent companies with economic motives. For this purpose, it had

    proposed setting up an independent regulatory body.

    REASONS FOR SELECTION OF ICICI PRUDENTIAL FOR

    THE RESEARCH

    ICICI Prudential ranks as number one amongst the private life insurance

    players. There is vast potential for this company in Indian market. ICICI Prudential is movingreally fast to capture untapped market and it is expanding its operations in different regionsin India. The company not only stands No. 1 but also treats its employees as No.1. No other

    14

  • 7/31/2019 Icici Prudential nitin 8305394430

    15/32

    2company provides rewards and recognition to their employees and advisors as done by ICICIPrudential. The culture of ICICI Prudential is like a Hindu Undivided Family. It worked onthe fundamental of building relations. As we look as current performance and future targetslaid down by ICICI Prudential, it brings in our mind the words of the great poet :

    ROBERT FROST

    THE WOODS ARE LOVELY

    DARK AND DEEPAND MILES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP

    Hence we firmly believe we could not get better exposure to life insurance if

    we would not have joined ICICI Prudential.

    ICICI Prudential life insurance company limited is one of the leadinginsurance companies in the private sector. Also it was the private sector company in India toenter the business of insurance.

    ANALYSIS

    The main players in the insurance sector are given in the table with their market share.I should say that before privatization only LIC is there so a kind of monopoly so that there is

    80% market share and the rest 20% are divided in other private insurance companies.

    ANALYSIS

    In India the whole population we consider at a 100% then from the above chartwe can say that there are 80% People which do not have any kind of insurance.

    So we can conclude that there is a wide scope for the insurance in the developingcountry like India. At present Insurance industry is growing like leaps and bounds.

    SUGGESTIONS

    There are some of the things that I feel during my training period that ICICIPrudential should improve.

    1. There should be the transparency when you are explaining to the customer about thepolicy. Many persons are not explaining the truth or hide the thing which should bediscussed.

    2. There are many other ways of marketing the products but according to my point of viewthey are more concentrating on the telephonic talk. Every time persons are talking ontelephones.

    3. When there is a presentation they should serve the people and offer them a glass of water.So that the people who came they feel free.

    4. ICICI Prudential should give more advertise on the Television or through any othermedia.

    So above are the Important suggestions which I have observed during my trainingperiod.
