6. Needs and insurance: - Risks arise because there are some needs to be fulfilled. Early death is a risk because of the need to maintain the family that is left behind. If there were no needs, there would be no risk. Insurance is therefore related to the needs of individuals. Different plans are designed to cater to different needs of the People. It is, therefore, Necessary to be aware of the needs of people before selling life insurance to them.

For this purpose, it had proposed setting up an independent regulatory body.

A STUDY ON “CUSTOMER SATISFACTION TOWARDSHDFC STANDARD LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY� HDFC Standard Life Insurance is the First Private Sector Life Insurance Company to be granted a license. It has increased its market share from 0.76% to 1.12% by collecting a premium income of 209bn. in the year ending March 2003-04.It has registered an premium growth rate of 61.88% over previous year. Insurance sector has grown not only in size but in maturity as well, in the sense that from very simple products, which were available earlier on to the present. What has been done is that Insurance Industry placed the customer in centre & developed products and services around the customer. In the past what we had was a bundled product so you get 3 or 4 benefits out of which it may be possible that you may need just 1 or 2 benefits but in the process you end up paying for all the four. In fact we were among the first to divide the offering into two -a core product and the benefits or the riders. And then it is up to the customer to choose and customize his own scheme according to needs and desires and pay for such scheme. I think that is the single largest revolution that has come about. The other revolution in the Insurance sector is in terms of distribution channels. Earlier we were having only agents but now we have agents, Bancassurance, corporate brokers and direct sales people. Retail agents and bancassurance are the 2 biggest insurance distribution channels.

The insurance penetration levels have considerably increased from 1.6 % to about 2.75%. Now whether that growth is enough in three year period, we can always counter that. In the last 3 years private insurance companies have grown at 200-300 % levels. But if you look at a longer time horizon say at 10 years the insurance companies would grow at 13-14% rate which would make it one of the fastest growing sectors. Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

A STUDY ON “CUSTOMER SATISFACTION TOWARDSHDFC STANDARD LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY� If we want an acronym of our products, we call it PIPS, which stands for Protection, Investment, Pension, & Safety. These are the basic requirements of any individual & thus our products satisfy each of these needs. We have got conventional products, which are in the conventional structure i.e. available with profits like Endowment, Money back then you have Unit Linked plans which are for those investors who understand the capital markets, debt markets & equity markets. In terms of popularity, little fewer than 50% products are savings products whether it is endowment, unit-linked or money back which are basically savings oriented. About 20% are investments oriented for e.g. single premium income policies where you pay in a shot and enjoy the protection & investments returns in future. About 20 % are in pensions. Pure protection is just about 5%. All these are in terms of premium income.USP is something that the customer will have to find because life insurance is a long-term process and it is about stability, being conservative. We don't hear about aggressive life insurance companies who survive for a longer period.

To be in business when we are talking of an insurance policy for say 30 years, your perspective is different in comparison to when you are taking a short term loan say a car loan for 3 years. Therefore different companies have chosen different models. Some of them have chosen to be in for the long run while some have chosen to be in for the short run. For in the short run, you need to have a high valuation of company, for high valuation you need to have high & rapid sales. Higher the sales higher are the valuation & higher the valuation higher is the price that you can charge.

A STUDY ON “CUSTOMER SATISFACTION TOWARDSHDFC STANDARD LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY” Insurance sector, you can’t differentiate on the basis of innovative products. The reason being, if yours is an excellent product it will not take too much time to be copied by other players. The thing which they can’t copy is your services and, I think, that would be the differentiating factor in the insurance arena for eg if you look at the HDFC model. There are banks that are lending at lower rates but even then HDFC is able to grow at 30% thus if HDFC grows at 30%, it is on that balance sheet, while others might grow 100% but that would be on that small size. Thus it is important that people trust you. It matters to do the right things even if they are not beneficial in the shorter run. Thus we know the purpose of our existence in this sector. The main support, which we get from our foreign partner, is in terms of actuary support. Actuaries are the people who arrive at the premium rates. It is a monopoly market & there are not too many players who get into this. There is a shortage of actuaries in India but yes now the people are pursuing it as a career. We get a lot of actuarial support from our foreign partner in terms of product development, valuation processes & it is necessary at each step to know what the implications are. They also help us on the training front and in development of good products by utilizing the vast experience they have of other countries. The best thing about them is whatever support we seek from them, they are ready to offer. They do not impose anything since they say that you know and understand the local markets better.

A STUDY ON “CUSTOMER SATISFACTION TOWARDSHDFC STANDARD LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY” The premium rate is Rs. 25 per Rs. 10,000 of lump sum, per member.

Benefits On the death of each member covered by the policy during the year of cover a lump sum equal to the sum assured will be paid to their beneficiaries or legal heirs. Where the death is as a result of an accident, an additional lump sum will be paid equal to half the sum assured. There are no benefits paid at the end of the year of cover and there is no surrender value available at any time. The role of the Development Agency Due to the nature of the groups covered, HDFC Standard Life will be passing certain administrative tasks onto the Development Agency. By passing on these tasks the premium charged can be lower. These tasks would include:    

Submission of member data in a specified computer format. Collection of premiums from group members. Recording changes in the details of group members. Disbursement of claim payments and the mortality rebate (if any) to group members.

These tasks would be in addition to the usual duties of a policyholder such as:  Payment of premiums.  Reporting of claims.  Keeping policy holder information up to date. Training and support will be available to give guidance on how to complete the tasks appropriately. Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
