7. OBJECTIVE OF THE PRESENTATION Highlighting the fundamentals of insurance as a financial product Insight into the Indian Insurance industry – players and products available in the market The tax implications of insurance

8. FUNDAMENTALS OF INSURANCE

9. Basic Terminology… What is insurance? Insurance is a contract between two parties where one party (the insurer) agrees to protect the other party (the insured) in the event of any loss or unforeseen event. Insurance can be broadly classified into two categories – Life Insurance and Non Life Insurance. What do you mean by premium payable on an insurance policy? Premium is the periodical amount that the insured needs to pay to the insurance company to enjoy the benefits of the insurance policy.

10. Basic Terminology… What do you mean by “sum assured”? Sum assured refers to the amount for which the insurance cover is taken. What is meant by death benefit? The amount received from the insurance company on the death of the insured is known as death benefit. What do you mean by “riders”? Riders are additional benefits that are added on to an insurance policy to make it more compatible to the needs of the policyholder. Riders are generally applicable only for life insurance and not for general insurance. What is maturity benefit? The amount received on the maturity of the policy is known as maturity benefit.

11. Why insurance??? PRIMARY REASON Life is full of uncertainties Provides the much required RISK COVER Serves as a financial buffer in the wake of any un-favorable and un-foreseen circumstances Ensures that near and dear ones are not left in financial doldrums due to any exigency The risk cover that insurance provides has no parallels in the financial world

12. Why insurance ??? SECONDARY REASON Money back plans provides an element of liquidity by returning a portion of the sum assured at regular intervals. This is in addition to the risk cover Unit linked plans invest a percentage of the premiums in market securities and provide returns. This combines market linked returns along with risk cover

13. Types of insurance policies… Term plan A traditional insurance plan Cheapest plan available in the market today The sum assured is returned on death, while maturity benefits are nil. Suitable for person’s having dependants Term plan can be made more attractive by taking up riders

14. Types of insurance policies… Endowment plan Advancement over the term plan This plan offers maturity benefits and death benefits Endowment plans are generally participative in nature and pay bonuses to the policyholder at the end of the policy term. E.g. LIC endowment plans offer bonuses @ Rs.50/- per thousand sum assured Suitable for persons who believe in asset creation

15. Types of insurance policies… Money back plans Such plans are comparatively more expensive than other insurance plans Money back plans return a certain percentage of the sum assured at regular intervals These plans will be appropriate in cases where the client requires additional funds in the near future along with a risk cover Such plans also offer bonus payments at the of the policy period

16. Types of insurance policies… Unit linked insurance plans These plans combine market linked returns with the valuable risk cover A portion of the premium is invested in market instruments The returns that are generated are ploughed back into a separate account known as accumulation account. On maturity the policyholder gets the value in the accumulation account or the sum assured whichever is higher. However, in some policies the benefit is sum assured plus the balance in the accumulation account.

17. ULIPs (Contd.) Similar to the concept of mutual funds such ULIPs offer the following investment options to the investors: Equity centric schemes invest primarily in equity and equity related instruments. This is relevant for aggressive investors having an appetite for risk Balanced schemes invest in a combination of equity and debt instruments. This is suitable for investors who are prepared to take a moderate amount of risk Liquid schemes or money market schemes invest primarily in money market instruments or debt instruments. This is suitable for highly conservative investors, who are not prepared to take risk and prefer safe investment avenues
