    • Industry overviewA brief history of the Insurance sectorThe business of life insurance in India in its existing form started in India in the year: -BSPATIL 5
    • 181  With the establishment of the Oriental Life Insurance Company in8 Calcutta. Some of the important milestones in the life insurance business in India are:191  The Indian Life Assurance Companies Act enacted as the first statute to2 regulate the life insurance business.192  The Indian Insurance Companies Act enacted to enable the government8 to collect statistical information about both life and non-life insurance businesses193  Earlier legislation consolidated and amended to by the Insurance Act8 with the objective of protecting the interests of the insuring public195  By the mid-1950s, there were around 170 insurance companies in the6 countrys life insurance scene. However, in the absence of regulatory systems, scams and irregularities were almost a way of life at most of these companiesAs a result, the government decided nationalizes the life assurance business in India. TheLife Insurance Corporation of India was set up in 1956 to take over around 250 lifecompanies. 245 Indian and foreign insurers and provident societies taken over by thecentral government and nationalized. LIC formed by an Act of Parliament, viz. LIC Act.For years thereafter, insurance remained a monopoly of the public sector. It was onlyafter seven years of deliberation and debate - after the RN Malhotra Committee report of1994 became the first serious document calling for the re-opening up of the insurancesector to private players -- that the sector was finally opened up to private players in2001.BSPATIL 6

    • have been registered. LIFE INSURERS  Public Sector Life Insurance Corporation of IndiaLIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA (LIC)An Act of Parliament, viz., Life Insurance Corporation Act, formed Life InsuranceCorporation of India (LIC) in September 1956, with capital contribution from theGovernment of India.The objective was: to conduct the business with the utmost economy, in a spirit oftrusteeship; to charge premium no higher than warranted by strict actuarialconsiderations; to invest the funds for obtaining maximum yield for the policy holdersconsistent with safety of the capital; to render prompt and efficient service to policyholders, thereby making insurance widely popular.Since nationalization, LIC has built up a vast network of 2,048 branches, 100 divisionsand 7 zonal offices spread over the country. The Life Insurance Corporation of India alsotransacts business abroad and has offices in Fiji, Mauritius and United Kingdom.BSPATIL 10
    • CURRENT SCENARIO OF THE INSURANCE INDUSTRYInnovative products and aggressive distribution have become the say of the day. Indians,have always seen life insurance as a tax saving device, are now suddenly turning to theprivate sector that are providing them new products and variety for their choice.PRIVATISATION: There were various reasons given by the government to nationalize the insurancesector was to take insurance to the mass, facilitate the flow of long term funds (whichinsurance companies, by virtue of the business they are in, have ready access to) intodevelopment of infrastructure in the country, and safe guard the interest of the policyholders. Towards this end, state insurers did develop the insurance sector, though mostexperts believe that these monopolies could have done much, much more. In the early nineties is, the government went on a reforms binge and started loosingcontrols on Indian industry. In 1993 the government appointed the Malhotra committeeheaded former RBI governor R.N.Malhotra, to draw up a blue print for insurance sectorreforms. The panel submitted its report a year later, recommending privatization, backedby stiff entry guidelines and stringent regulations, so as to avoid repeat pernationalization free for all. The insurance regulatory and development authority (IRDA) was founded toregulate the sector and over see the process of privatization. In 2000, the IRDA startedgiving out licenses, and a year later, the first of the private players started operation. Thewheel had come full circle.BSPATIL 11
    • Under state control, the insurance sector, both life and non-life ,grew steadily. Still, Indians are not adequately insured and lag behind most countries. Total insurance penetration (insurance premium as a percentage of gross domestic product) is dismal when compared to its economic standing. Just 2% of the population has some of life insurance.

    • Literature Review: The project report on “A study on customer awareness to enhance market share ofBajaj Allianz Unit Link Insurance Plan” in Hubli. I through under took the project by thehelp of BAJAJ ALLIANZ Life Insurance Ltd. Sales team manager Chandru.A.KallanagoudarBody of the Report: Primary data was collected by administration questionnaire of 100 customers. Thequestionnaire was specially framed to meet the requirement of the survey and thefollowing details. Direct contact was made with the respondents through random sample to collectthe needful information with reference to our objective as per to meet the surveyrequirement.Interview technique: Direct personal interview was conducted throughout project using direct structuredand self-administrative questionnaire.BSPATIL 14
    • Conclusion & Recommendation: Analysis was based on the result of the research conducted and therecommendations are based on the analysis.Limitation : The major limitation of the project was time frame.STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM “A study on customer awareness to enhance market share of Bajaj Allianz Unit Linked Insurance Products”. Management Problem:In the project the management problem is the ULIP’s is new in the market & the lot ofpeople are don’t know about the ULIP’s the management wants the improve market shareof ULIP’s.Advantages of investing in ULIP:ULIPs have been selling like proverbial `hot cakes in the recent past and they are likelyto continue to outsell their plain vanilla counterparts going ahead. So what is it thatmakes ULIPs so attractive to the individual is, as followsBSPATIL 15
    • 1.Insurace cover plus savings: ULIP serve the purpose of providing life insurancecombined with savings at market-linked returns. To that extent, ULIPs can be termed as atwo-in-one plan in terms of giving an individual the twin benefits of life insurance plussavings. This is unlike comparable instruments like a mutual fund for instance, whichdoes not offer a life cover.2.Multiple investment options: ULIP offer a lot more variety than traditional lifeinsurance plans. So there are multiple options at the individuals disposal. . ULIPsgenerally come in three broad variants:  Aggressive ULIPs (which can typically invest 80%-100% in equities, balance in debt)  Balanced ULIPs (can typically invest around 40%-60% in equities)  Conservative ULIPs (can typically invest up to 20% in equities)Although this is how the ULIP options are generally designed, the exact debt/equityallocations may vary across insurance companies. Individuals can opt for a variant basedon their risk profile. For example, a 30-Yr old individual looking at buying a lifeBSPATIL 16
    • insurance plan that also helps him build a corpus for retirement can consider investing inthe Balanced or even the Aggressive ULIP. Likewise, a risk-averse individual who is notcomfortable with a high equity allocation can opt for the Conservative ULIP.3.FlexibilityMutual Funds also offer hybrid/balanced schemes that allow an individual to select a planaccording to his risk profile. The difference lies in the flexibility that ULIPs afford theindividual. Individuals can switch between the ULIP variants outlined above to capitalizeon investment opportunities across the equity and debt markets. Some insurancecompanies allow a certain number of `free switches. This is an important feature thatallows the informed individual/investor to benefit from the vagaries of stock/debtmarkets. For instance, when stock markets were on the brink of 7,000 points (Sensex),the informed investor could have shifted his assets from an Aggressive ULIP to a low-risk Conservative ULIP.Switching also helps individuals on another front. They can shift from an Aggressive to aBalanced or a Conservative ULIP as they approach retirement. This is a reflection of thechange in their risk appetite, as they grow older.4. Works like an SIP: Rupee cost-averaging is another important benefit associated withULIPs. With an SIP, individuals invest their monies regularly over time intervals of amonth/quarter and dont have to worry about `timing the stock markets. As a matter offact, even the annual premium in a ULIP works on the rupee cost-averaging principle. Anadded benefit with ULIPs is that individuals can also invest a one-time amount in theBSPATIL 17
    • ULIP either to benefit from opportunities in the stock markets or if they have aninvestible surplus in a particular year that they wish to put aside for the future.The chart below shows how ULIP can meet multiple needs at different life stages.

Top-ups form the period without lapsing the accumulation (with reduced policy expenses) for the golden yrs cash accumulationBecause of their flexibility to adjust to different life stage needs, ULIPs fit in very wellwith financial planning efforts.BSPATIL 19
    • Limitation:1. It is prudent to make equity-oriented investments based on an established track recordof at least three years over different market cycles. ULIPs may not fulfill this criterion innear future.2. Insurance and savings are two different goals and it is better to address them separatelyrather than bundle them into a single product. A combination of a term plan and a mutualfund could give better results over the long term.3.The free hand given to ULIPs might prove risky if the timing of exit happens tocoincide with a bearish market phase, because of the inherently high equity component ofthese schemes.4. An initial allocation charge is deducted from investor premiums for selling, marketingand broker commissions. These charges could be as high as 65 per cent of the first yearpremiums. Premium allocation charges are usually very high (5-65 per cent) in the firstcouple of years, but taper off later. The high initial charges mainly go towards fundingagent commissions, which could be as high as 40 per cent of the initial premium as perIRDA regulations.The charges are higher for a linked plan than a non-linked plan, as the former require lotmore servicing than the latter, such as regular disclosure of investments, switches, re-BSPATIL 20
    • direction of premiums, withdrawals, and so on. Insurance companies have the discretionto structure their expenses structure whereas a mutual fund does not have that luxury. Theexpense ratios in their case cannot exceed 2.5 per cent for an equity plan and 2.25 percent for a debt plan respectively. The lack of regulation on the expense front works to thedetriment of investors in ULIPs.5. The front-loading of charges does have an impact on overall returns as investors loseout on the compounding benefit. Insurance companies explain that charges get evenedout over a long term. Thus investors are forced to stay with the plan for a longer tenure toeven out the effect of initial charges as the shorter the tenure, the lower will be theinvestor real returns.6. In effect, when investor lock in their money in a ULIP, despite the promise offlexibility and liquidity, investor will stuck with one fund management style. This is allthe more reason to look for an established track record before committing investor hard-earned money.7. Investor life cover charges would depend on the accumulation in investor investmentaccount. As accumulation increases, the amount at risk for the insurance companydecreases. However, with increasing age, the cost per Rs 1,000 sum assured increases,effectively increasing policy holder overall insurance costs.BSPATIL 21
    • 8. It would deal with the fact that expenses on ULIPs were on the higher side in the initialyears and therefore; the exit option would hardly prove to be beneficial for the investors.9. ULIP face tough competition from mutual funds, which are short-term instruments.Hence, a liquidity option makes ULIPs as attractive but because of the high front-endcharges on policy, investor may not be left with much to withdraw at the end of 3 years.Scope of the study: The research was undertaken to gather information from the respondent to knowexactly how many people aware of ULIPs in Hubli city and the study is restricted withinthe city. The reason for confining the scope of the research in Hubli were. 2) One of the fast growing city in Karnataka and represents huge market for scope with more than 90 lakhs people. 3) Hubli is one of the commercial areas . 4) It is a place where the small and large industries are located .with the more increase population and there style more people are conscious about the their lives.BSPATIL 22

    • Bancassurance VantageUNIT LINKED INSURANCE PLAN OR MARKET LINKED INSURANCE PLAN (ULIP).INTRODUCTION TO ULIPULIP came into play in the 1960s and became very popular in Western Europe andAmericas. The reason that is attributed to the wide spread popularity of ULIP is becauseof the transparency and the flexibility which it offers. As times progressed the plans wereBSPATIL 32
    • also successfully mapped along with life insurance need to retirement planning. Intoday’s times, ULIP provides solutions for insurance planning, financial needs, financialplanning for children’s future and retirement planning. Features of ULIP distinguishitself through the multiple benefits that it provides to the consumer. The plan is a one-stop solution providing: Life protection· Investment and Savings· Flexibility- AdjustableLife Cover- Investment Options· Transparency· Options to take additional cover against-Death due to accident- Disability- Critical Illness- Surgeries· Liquidity.ULIP distinguishes itself through the multiple benefits it provides to the policyholders.These plans are designed with a view to help the customers to utilize the marketopportunities by investing in the share market, capital market and at the same time havethe facility of Death Benefit and Maturity Benefit.Meaning It is a plan, which provides Life Insurance, and here policy value at any time varies according to the value of the underlying asset at that time.It is a plan that provides the client with the benefit of protection and flexibility.An ULIP plan works as a one-stop advantage for the policyholder. It gives thepolicyholder a wholesome advantage of integrated financial planning.BSPATIL 33
    • STRUCTURE OF ULIP: - ULIP CONTRIBUTION LESS- CHARGES INVESTMENT LIFE COVER REPRESENTED AS NAVNAV CONCEPTIt exhibits the value (or the price) that one has for his investment or one will have to payfor his investment.As, the investment made by different people are different, the value (or the price) is theexpressed in per unit terms. It helps in knowing the value of Insurance at any point oftime.BSPATIL 34
    • Technical Calculation of NAV: -UNIT Value = (Total market Value of all assets invested less expenses related to Investment management / Total no. of outstanding units)Factors affecting NAV:Market Value of investment portfolio, Number of Units, Expenses and InvestmentIncome.Ex: If 2,00,000 /- has been accumulated in the equity fund and the no. of units issued is10,000 /- then the NAV of the equity fund is: - 2,00,000 / 10,000 = Rs 20 / -As the equity market develop the fund grows from 2,00,000 / - to 220,000/-Now the NAV = 2,20,000 / 10,000 = Rs 22 / -If among these 10,000 units the policyholder has 5000 units then the value of investmentas of now is Rs 1,10,000.Thus a unit linked plan actually tells, what is the value of the fund.BASIC FEATURES OF ULIP 1. Life protection 2. Investment and savings 3. Flexibility 4. Transparency 5. Added Benefits a) Death due to accidentBSPATIL 35
    • b) Any kind of disability c) Critical illness d) Surgeries 6. Liquidity 7. Tax Planning 8. Adjustable Life Cover 9. - Investment Options- 1) LIFE PROTECTIONBSPATIL 36
    • Children Start a Establishi Family ng Career Retiremen t Time Start Working The graph shows the various needs of the customer at different point of time, individuals needs differ and his need for life protection fluctuates. ULIP satisfies the varying needs of the customer providing him with more and more protection as and when he requires, by allowing the policyholder to increase or decrease the death benefit. It is usually multiple of the contribution being paid, which ensure that the contribution is adequate enough to provide life protection. And is also able to maintain a sem balance between protection and savings.BSPATIL 37
    • 2) INVESTMENTS AND SAVINGS ULIP provides the client with option of investing as per his risk appetite and gets returns accordingly. These various options available for an individual to make investment in comparatively high risks instruments and get high returns. Below shown is a graph illustrating the various investment options for a client. Equity funds Balance d funds Debt Short funds term debt fundsBSPATIL 38
    • Risk Example 1: Here are four types of funds in which a client can invest. In each case the risk goes on increasing with the type of fund. The client has an option to shift as the risk and return orientation changes (Switch). 3) FLEXIBILITY The client has an option to choose the amount of sum assured and the premium amount he is capable of paying. In case of certain plans of ULIP the client is allowed to choose the premium. Eg: Lifetime and Lifetime I the client has a flexibility to decide the life cover according to his financial needs, independent of premium selected. Following points enumerate the flexibility feature of ULIP a) Increase in death benefit. As life cycle changes of a client he passes through various risks and responsibilities. He can increase or decrease the death benefit accordingly. b) Decrease in death benefit. If the client is unable to pay the same amount of premium he can decrease the death benefit with certain conditions applying according to the particular plans. c) Premium holidayBSPATIL 39
    • After paying the premium regularly for 3 years from the starting date of the policy the client can take a premium holiday if he is unable to pay a particular premium due. On returning from the premium holiday the client can pay the previous premiums if he desires or continue from that date. d) Choice of fund. There are four kinds of funds available for a client of ULIP. He has an option to switch between these four funds. He can either choose only one or invest in all four depending on his risk tolerance. Plan Plan objective Risk Investment pattern Maximiser High growth and High Equity and equity (Growth) capital appreciation related securities: Max over a long terms 90%, Debt, money market and cash: Min 10% Balancer Balance of capital Average Equity and equity (balanced) appreciation and related securities: Max study returns over a 40%, Debt, money long terms market and cash: Min 60% Preserver Equal balance of Low Debt instrument: Max capital appreciation 50% and study returns Money market and over a long term cash: Min 50% Protector Study returns over a Moderate Debt instrument: Max (Income) long term. 100% Money market and cash: Max 25% e) Switch between the fundsBSPATIL 40
    • The policyholder has a choice two reallocate the premium paid by him on every premium policy anniversary. He can switch between the above four funds to avail the advantages of market fluctuations. f) Top ups Some times the client may have surplus amount after his expenses. ULIP allows him to save that amount by investing in the insurance he can avail the benefit of top up by paying extra premium, which will be invested in the share market by the insurer company. The client gets expert fund management. The policyholder is allowed to do as many top ups in the tenure of plan. g) Premium redirection The policyholder is allowed to reallocate the premium paid each time to different fund structure. Thus whenever the premium is due (As per the premium payment mode), he can redirect the current premium into different asset allocations than the previous time. This helps the policyholder to optimize the funds in accordance to market with out using the switch option. e) Assignment option The policyholder can assign the policy to any of the nominees or any bank in case he has taken a loan on the title of the policy. Unfortunately if something happens to the policyholder then the insurer will repay the loan taken by the client to the extent of premium paid. 4) TransparencyBSPATIL 41
    • ULIP products are transparent in terms of, the policyholder is aware of where his contribution is being allocated. The policyholder is aware of the various charges charged to him. The Various charges of the ULIP are: - a) Contribution related Charges- Running expenses of the policy b) Administrative Charges- Issuance cost, distribution costs etc c) Fund Management Fee- cost of being and selling the various financial instruments for various funds. d) Mortality Charges: cost of providing life protection. e) Rider charges: cost of other protection charges. f) Surrender charges: cost to cover initial expenses. g) Bid offer charges: difference between the offer price of units and the selling price i.e. bid price of units. It covers the cost of selling the policy. h) Transaction specific charges: cost of changing funds, toping up the investment component or withdrawals Daily NAV: A feature that lets us know on a daily bases, how the money in insurance plan is growing. 5) ADDED BENEFITS To get extra protection ULIP provides the policyholder the advantage of rider attachments. a. Death due to accident (ADBR) b. Disability (ABR) c. Critical Illness (CIBR) d. Surgeries (MSAR) (Now discontinued) 6) LIQUIDITYBSPATIL 42
    • The feature makes ULIP a marketable plan. The policyholder has an option of withdrawals in case if need arises. ULIP provides easy access to the money as and when the policyholder may requires. There are two types of withdrawal options. a) Partial b) complete The value of withdrawal reduces the death benefit by same amount. This facility can be avail only after three full premium payment years are completed. The minimum worth of this units and a maximum where in at least Rs. 10000/- worth units remain in all the funds put together. 7) TAX PLANNING This is another feature of ULIP that motives the policyholder to invest in the insurance plans. They usually invest to avail the tax benefit. Regulation in India allows tax benefits in the contribution paid under section 88, contribution paid for health riders critical illness and major surgical is allowed tax benefits under section 80D, as per the prevailing tax laws. Maturity benefits are tax free under section 10(10) D, provided life come is at Life rime regular Premium least 5 times of the annual contribution paid. Death benefit is tax free under section 10(10) d. Part of the Premium Allocated Premium towards the policy With so many tax benefits available in one instrument ULIP tends to be an intelligent tax-planning tool. Working of a ULIP Plan This goes Insurance to the Allotment of Units Charges Protection a/c to provide against the 3D Effect Various Investment Options. Facility Units that build up the of withdrawals investment valueBSPATIL and investing 43
    • For ExampleA client put in regular contribution of Rs.20, 000 /-. From this amount a % is deducted ascontribution.Therefore if the contribution related expense is 40% - Rs.8000/- will be deducted ascontribution charges.The amount that is now available is Rs.20000-8000=12000/-Now, if the client who is available is aged 30 years were to take a life cover of 500,000/-then mortality (1.50/- per thousand at the age of 30) charge of 750 /- will be deducted.This amount will provide life cover to the policy. The remaining amount of –11250/- willbe invested in any one of them or all of them.The Investment is shown in terms of units. Thus if client invests in debt fund and theNAV of the debt fund is Rs. 15/-(market price) then the no. of units that the client will getis 11,250/15=750. For this investment-fund management fee will be charged and thecharges for maintaining the policy an administrative charge are levied. Are ULIPs similar to mutual funds?. In structure, yes; in objective, no. Because of the high first-year charges, mutual funds are a better option if you have a five-year horizon.BSPATIL 44
    • But if you have a horizon of 10 years or more , then ULIPs have an edge. To explain this further a ULIP has high first –year charges towards acquisition (including agents commissions). As a result, they find it difficult to outperform mutual funds in the five years. But in the long term, ULIP managers have advantages over mutual funds managers. Since policyholder premium come at regular intervals, investments can be planned out more evenly. Mutual fund managers cannot take a similar long term view because they have bulk investors who can move money in and out of schemes at short notice. Which is better, unit-linked or ‘Traditional plan’? The two strong arguments in favor of unit-linked plans are that –the investor knows exactly what is happening to his money and two ,it allows the investor to choose the assets into which he wants his funds invested. A traditional ‘with profits,’ on the other hands, is a black box and a policyholder has little knowledge of what is happening. An investor in a ULIP knows how much he is paying towards mortality, management and administration charges. He also knows where the insurance company has invested the money. The investor gets exactly the same returns that the fund earns, but he also bears the investment risk. The transparency makes the product more competitive .So if you are willing to bare the investment risk in order to generate a higher return on your retirement funds, ULIPs are for you. Traditional ‘with profits’ policies too invest in the market and generate the sameBSPATIL 45
    • Returns prevailing in the marker. But here the insurance company evens out returns to ensure that policyholders do not lose money in a bad year. In that sense they are safer. ULIPs also offer flexibility. For instance, a policyholder can ask the insurance Company to liquidate units in his account to meet the mortality charges if he is unable to pay any premium installment. This eats into his savings, but ensures that the policy will continue to cover his life. Why do insurers prefer ULIPs? Insurers love ULIPs for several reasons. Most important of all, insurers can sell these policies with less capital of their own than what would be required if they sold traditional policies. In traditional ‘with profits’ policies, the insurance company bears the investment risk to the extent of the assured amount .In ULIPs, the policyholder bears most of the investment risk. Since ULIPs are devised to mobilize savings, they give insurance companies an opportunity to get a large chunk of the asset management business, which has been traditionally dominated by mutual funds. Are unit-linked insurance plans good? Most insurers in the year 2004 have started offering at least a few unit-linked plans . Unit-linked life insurance products are those where the benefits are expressedBSPATIL 46
    • in terms of number of units and unit price. They can be viewed as a combination of insurance and mutual funds. The number of units that a customer would get would depend on the unit price when he pays his premium. The daily unit price is based on the market value of the underlying assets (equities, bonds, government securities, etc) and computed from the net asset value. The advantage of unit –linked plans is that they arte simple, clear, and easy to understand. Being transparent the policyholder gets the entire upside on the performance of his fund .Besides all the advantages they offer to the customers, unit- linked plans also lead to an efficient utilization of capital. Unit –linked products are exempted from tax and they provide life insurance. Investor welcome these products as they provide capital appreciation even as the yields on government securities have fallen below 6 percent , which has made the insurers slash payouts. According to the IRDA, a company offering unit-linked plans must give the investor an option to choose among debt, balanced and equity funds. If you opt for a unit-linked endowment policy, you can choose to invest your premiums in debt, balanced or equity plans. If you choose a debt plan, the majority of your premiums will get invested in debt securities like gilts and bonds. If you choose equity, then a major portion of your premiums will be invested in the equity market. The plan you choose would depend on your risk profile and your investment needs.BSPATIL 47
    • The ideal time to buy a unit-linked plan is when one can expect long termgrowth ahead . This is especially so if one also believes that current market values(stock valuations ) are relatively low. So if you are opting for a plan that invests primarily in equity , the buzzing marketcould lead to windfall returns. However , should the buzz die down , investors could beleft stung. If one invests in a unit-linked pension plan early on , say when one is 25, onecan afford to take the risk associated with equities , at least in the plan’s initial stages.However ,as one approaches retirement the quantum of returns should be subordinated tocapital preservation. At this stage , investing in plan that has an equity tilt may not be agood idea. Considering that unit-linked plans are relatively new launches, their short historydoes not permit an assessment of how they will perform in different phases of the stockmarket. Even if one views insurance as a long term commitment, investments based onperformance over such a short time span may not be appropriate. Allianz Bajaj launches its first unit linked policy. Allianz Bajaj Life Insurance Company has launched Unit Gain , the company’sfirst unit linked policy. Unit Gain allows customers to combine the benefits of lifeinsurance with higher investment returns from equity and debt markets. Unit Gain was launched with a choice of four funds to the customer- equity,debt, balanced and cash funds.

    • LIMITATIONS  The limitation of the project was that the study and the survey were conducted in Hubli city only, the analysis and recommendations may not be fully applicable to other cities.  The time was not enough to study the vast and growing Life insurance sector in Hubli cityConclusion :From the over all project and market survey it is clear that Bajaj Allianz Life InsuranceCo .Ltd is doing well but most of the people are not aware of ULIP’s . But in the present threading competition they should do more then the present efforts inthe following fields. 1. Advertising campaign. 2. Trade promotion activity.
