SBI Life Insurance with the state-owned Indian Bank has tied up to enter into a Bancassurance pact with one another. This will enable them to offer solutions to financial plannings that are holistic to the customers of the Indian Bank. SBI Life is a leading private life insurance company in India.
A Bancassurance is a simple concept. It is an arrangement between an insurance company and a bank, wherein, the insurance company sells its policies to the bank customers. This is a win-win situation for both institutions. The bank increases its revenue by selling these insurance products to its clients; the insurance company expands its customer base extensively. They do not even have to spend money to increase their workforce as the bank employees will be given the required training.
Let’s take a look at some of the positive points from such a mutual agreement;
The partnership between the two will see a vast extensive evolution in the insurance services. The tie-up will see SBI Life Insurance’s services offered to people across the country through the branches of Indian Bank, which are over an astonishing number 2,851. In turn, SBI Life will provide the workforce of the Indian Bank with sales training, product support, and operational training for smooth processing. This will enable them to provide all the life insurance policy services to their customers.
Padmaja Chunduru, MD and CEO of Indian Bank, and Sanjeev Nautiyal, MD and CEO of SBI Life were both present at the time of signing the agreement.
Chunduru was delighted with the collaboration between the two institutions and said that it will add a host of new products to the bank’s repertoire for the customers to make use of.
Nautiyal too expressed his excitement and thrill at the new prospect. He was glad that SBI Life was able to partner up with Indian Bank as it is one of the most stable and oldest financial institutions in the country. He also expressed his hope to reach a more expansive customer base through this partnership, making insurance available to everyone in the country.
