HDFC Life Insurance Company


Indian life insurers’ stock prices out of line against Asian peers: Milliman report
Three life insurance companies are listed on the stock exchanges currently


Does this allow more players in the already crowded insurance sector? More consolidation as well.


Interim dividend of Rs.1.36 per share

The first year premium collection figures:

Among the major private players, SBI Life’s first year premium grew 20.6 percent to Rs 880.99 crore; HDFC Standard Life Rs 854.47 crore (up 64 per cent) and ICICI Prudential Life Rs 783.88 crore (up 5.8 percent).

HDFC Life seems to have the topmost YTD first year premium collections.

Does this mean - HDFC is strong choice in Corporates while ICICI is favored with retail users?

Would also appreciate some pro & con analysis.

This implies that HDFC has a stronger focus on group business as compared to ICICI. Group can be highly competitive & low margin or can be very profitable, depending on the type of business the company writes. For HDFC, it is largely positive on margins.

Why are we seeing a PE of 85? Can someone please enlighten me? Given the PE the upside is capped for years to come?

Any opinion about the valuation of HDFC LIFE @ > 500 rupees per share?

(mrai74) #38

We must understand that it was considered costly during IPO listing itself but this is proven fact that brand HDFC always enjoys extra valuation. I still see it moving northwards with no negative visible signs in near future.

my 2cents…maybe after few years it will settle at 60 PE…but i think the upside is capped for now i guess
Insurance is still under penetrated…I think all insurances will trade at par with FMCG valuations i believe

will the ULIPS revenue is also included here? if yes i think ulips will find flavor bcz of taxations


Interesting article. But I don’t understand why would Amitabh Chaudhry be interested in joining Axis (if the reports are true)


More & more un confirmed news that Amitabh Chaudhry will leave HDFC LIFE & join AXIS as CEO.

If it happens, who would be the replacement for him at HDFC LIFE?
