ICICI Lombard reckons as a trusted partner when it comes to Insurance, India’s leading private non-life insurance company.
They have many firsts to their credit and it’s not a small feat to achieve these.
With the customers’ ever-changing needs and risks emerging owing to various factors like pandemics, climate change or data privacy, the solutions needed also need to be more suited. To add to it the advent of newer technologies paves the way for better solutions.
The insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has recently announced that health and general insurance companies (for sectors like fire, motor and marine) could launch their products without prior approvals. The regulatory body aims to enhance insurance penetration across the country through this “Use and File Framework.” This stepping stone decision gives flexibility to the companies for bringing in customised innovative plans to the customers at short timelines. This has been effective immediately. This decision was like the cherry on the cake, it became the core thought to launch new product offerings by ICICI Lombard. They have launched 14 new or enhanced insurance solutions, including riders/add-ons and upgrades across Health, Motor, Travel and Corporate segments.
Sharing his thoughts on the expansion of ICICI Lombard’s product portfolio, Sanjeev Mantri, Executive Director, ICICI Lombard said,
“We, at ICICI Lombard, have always been at the forefront of providing millions of customers with simplified and cutting-edge risk solutions tailored to their specific needs. Innovation and agility are a part of our organisational DNA, and our comprehensive suite of offerings is designed to meet the myriad needs of customers, cutting across demographics of age, geographies, socio-economic backgrounds or gender. Am elated to share that we have a product for virtually every segment and fuelled by regulatory reforms, we have accelerated our pace of developing and launching new products. I believe the current era in the insurance industry is an exciting period to usher in innovation and reimagine possibilities. With 14 new products and upgrades on the anvil, has further cemented ICICI Lombard as a pre-eminent and comprehensive risk insurer of the nation.” — Sanjeev Mantri, Executive Director, ICICI Lombard
