Recommendation on LIC IPO – Life Insurance Corporation of India IPO:

Review and Recommendation of  LIC IPO by InvestorZone is 5/10 1. LIC is the most trusted and the Fifth largest life insurer globally by GWP and the largest player in the fast growing and under-penetrated Indian life insurance sector. 2. It sells LIC Policies via Online and Offline mode. However, most of the business of LIC comes from 13 lakh agents who sell individually on the behalf of LIC. 3. Having said all positive things, the LIC is continuously loosing market share from private players. This is the reason of concern going forward. 4. As far as market is concerned, India is still very under penetrated market for Insurance. Less than 4% population takes insurance. So, growth opportunity is huge. 5. On Valuation front, government done a wonderful job and with hefty discounts to retailers and policy holders, the valuation has become more attractive. Currently, it is the cheapest among all the listed life insurance players in the market. So, 10-15% listing gain might happen in the company.

    Can someone give the total number of applications received under Retail category with source reference?

    Can anyone explain
    Why the embedded value is 5.4 lakh cr when the premium collected is 4lkah cr and margins are only 10%, growth is only 7%

    When the private players with better growth and margin profile command only 30000 cr embedded value on premium collection of 40000 cr

    Umesh sir,
    If I have amount of just 1 lot (15k)
    Which is best way to apply
    Retail or
    Policy holder
    I am eligible for both.
    Thank you.

      As per current situation I think you should apply for retail. Policy holder subscription is already subscribed 4.25 times and it will be alloted on proportionate basis

    DEAR SIR, PLS SHARE UR RECOMMENDATION FOR THIS IPO, AND PLS HELP ME FOR THE FOLLOWING…
    SHD I APPLY TWO APPLICATION ? ONE IN RETAIL INDIVIDUAL AND SECOND IN POLICYHOLDER?
    IF SO THEN CAN I USE SAME DEMAT ACCOUNT NO OR SHD I PUT TWO DIFFERENT DEMAT ACCOUNTS?

    What should be the strategy for applying for this IPO which would increase chance of allotment?

      It is a big IPO, so chances of allotment are very high.

      DEAR SIR, PLS SHARE UR RECOMMENDATION FOR THIS IPO, AND PLS HELP ME FOR THE FOLLOWING…
