  8. 8. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) WHAT IS INSURANCEThe business of insurance is related to the protection of the ECONOMICVALUES OF ASSETS. Every asset has a value. The asset would have beencreated through the efforts of the owner. The asset would have been createdthrough the efforts of the owner. The asset is valuable to the owner, because heexpects to get some benefits from it. It is a benefit because it meets some of hisneeds. The benefit may be an income or in some other form. In the case of afactory or a cow, the product generated by it is sold and income is generated. Inthe case of a motor car, it provides comfort and convenience in transportation.There is no direct income. Both are assets and provide benefits.Every asset is expected to last for a certain period of time during which it willprovide the benefits. After that, the benefit may not be available.There is a life-time for a machine in factory or a cow or a motor car. None ofthem will last forever. The owner is aware of this and he can so manage hisaffairs that by the end of that period or life-time, a substitute is made available.Thus he makes sure that the benefit is not lost. However, the asset may get lostearlier. An accident or some other unfortunate event may destroy it or make itincapable of giving the benefits. An epidemic may kill the cow suddenly. In thatcase, the owner and those enjoying the benefits therefore, would be deprived ofthe benefits. The planned substitute would not have been ready. There is anadverse or unpleasant situation. Insurance is a mechanism that helps to reducethe effects of such adverse situations. It promises to pay to the owner orbeneficiary of the asset, a certain sum if the loss occurs. 8 Jims-kalkaji
  9. 9. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) HISTORY OF INSURANCEInsurance has been known to exist in some form or other since 3000 BC. The Chinesetraders, travelling treacherous river rapids would distribute their goods among severalvessels, so that the loss from any one vessel being lost would be partial and shared,and not total. The Babylonian traders would agree to pay additional sums to lenders,as the price for writing off the loans, in case of the shipment being stolen. Theinhabitants of Rhodes adopted the principle of general average, whereby, if goods areshipped together, the owners would bear the losses in proportion, if loss occurs, due tojettisoning during distress. (Captains of ships caught in storms, would throw awaysome of the cargo to reduce the weight and restore balance. Such throwing away iscalled jettisoning.) The Greeks had started benevolent societies in the late 7th centuryAD, to take care of the funeral and families of members who died. The great fire ofLondon in 1666,in which more than 13000 house were lost, gave a boost to insuranceand the first fire insurance company, called the fire office, was started in 1680.The origins of insurance business as in vogue at present, is traced to the Lloyd‘sCoffee House in London. Traders, who used to gather in the Lloyd‘s coffee house inLondon, agreed to share the losses to their goods while being carried by ships. Thelosses used to occur because of pirates who robbed on the high seas because of badweather spoiling the goods or sinking the ship. In India, insurance began in 1818 withlife insurance being transacted by an English company, the Oriental Life InsuranceCo. in 1870 in Mumbai. This was followed by the Bharat Insurance co. in 1896 inDelhi, the Empire of India in 1897 in Mumbai, The United India in Chennai, theNational, the National Indian and Hindustan Cooperative in Kolkata.Later, were established the cooperative Assurance in Lahore, the Bombay Life(originally called the swadeshi life), the India Mercantile, the new India and theJupiter in Mumbai and the Lakshmi in New Delhi. These were all Indian companiesstarted as a result of the swadeshi movement in the early 1900s. By the year 1956,when life insurance business was nationalized and the life Insurance Corporation ofIndia (LIC) was formed on1st September 1956, there were 170 companies and 75provident fund societies transacting life business in India. After the amendments tothe relevant laws in 1999, the L.I.C. did not have the exclusive privilege of doing lifeinsurance business in India. By 31.8.2007, sixteen new life insurers had beenregistered and were transacting life insurance business in India.9 Jims-kalkaji
  10. 10. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) HISTORY OF INSURANCE IN INDIASome of the important milestones in the life insurance business in India are: 1912 - The Indian Life Assurance Companies Act enacted as the first statute to regulate the life insurance business. 1928 - The Indian Insurance Companies Act enacted to enable the government to collect statistical information about both life and non-life insurance businesses. 1938 - Earlier legislation consolidated and amended to by the Insurance Act with the objective of protecting the interests of the insuring public. 1956 - 245 Indian and foreign insurers and provident societies taken over by the central government and nationalized. LIC formed by an Act of Parliament, viz. LIC Act, 1956, with a capital contribution of Rs. 5 Crores from the Government of India. The General insurance business in India, on the other hand, can trace its roots to the Triton Insurance Company Ltd., the first general insurance company established in the year 1850 in Calcutta by the British. 10 Jims-kalkaji
  11. 11. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) LIFE INSURANCE A BASIC NEED Life insurance is a contract providing for payment of a sum of money to the person assuredor, failing him, to the person entitled to receive the same, on the happening of certain event.A family is generally dependent for its food, clothing and shelter on the income brought in atregular intervals by the bread winner of the family. So long as the he lives and the income isreceived steadily, that family is secure; but should death suddenly intervene the family maybe left in a very difficult situation and sometimes, in stark poverty.Uncertainty of death is inherent in human life. It is this uncertainty that is risk, which givesrise to the necessity for some form of protection against the financial loss arising from death;insurance substitutes this uncertainty by certainty.Few Advantages of Life Insurance.1. It is superior to an ordinary savings plans:This is so because unlike other saving plans, it affords full protection against risk of death. Incase of death, the full sum assured is made available under a life assurance policy; whereasunder other savings schemes the total accumulated savings alone will be available. The latterwill be considerably less than the sum assured, if death occurs during early years.2. Insurance encourages and forces thrift:A savings deposit can be too easily withdrawn. Many may not be able to resist the temptationof using the balance for some less worthy purpose. On the other hand, the payment of lifeinsurance premiums becomes a habit and comes to be viewed with the same seriousness asthe payment of interest on a mortgage. Thus insurance, in effect brings about compulsorysaving.3. Easy settlement and protection against creditors:The life assured can name a person or persons to whom the policy moneys would be payablein the event of his death. The proceeds of a life insurance policy can be protected against. Theclaims of the creditors of the life assured by effecting a valid assignment of the policy. Amarried women‘s property act policy constitutes a trust in favour of the wife and children andno separate assignment is necessary. The beneficiaries are fully protected from creditorsexcept to the extent of any interest in the policy retained by the assured. (Contd.) 11 Jims-kalkaji
  12. 12. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report)4. Administering the legacy for beneficiaries:It often happens that a provision which a husband or father has made through insurance isquickly lost through speculative or unwise investment or by unnecessary expenditure onluxuries. These contingencies can be provided against in the case of insurance. Thepolicyholder can arrange that in the in the event of his death the beneficiary should receive,instead of a single sum (a). Payment of the net claim amount by equal instalments over aspecified period of years, or (b). Payment of the claim amount by smaller monthlyinstalments over the selected period followed by a lump sum at the end thereof.5. Ready marketability and suitability for quick borrowings:After an initial period, if the policy holder finds himself unable to continue payment ofpremiums he can surrender the policy for a cash sum. Alternatively he can tide over atemporary difficulty by taking loan on the sole security of the policy without delay. Further alife insurance policy is sometimes acceptable as security for a commercial loan.6. Tax relief:For computing income tax (especially in India the Indian income tax act) follows deductionfrom income tax payable, a certain percentage of a portion of the taxable income ofindividuals which is diverted to payment of insurance premiums. When this tax relief is takeninto account it will be found that the assured is n effect paying a lower premium for hisinsurance. 12 Jims-kalkaji
  13. 13. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) HOW INSURANCE WORKSThe mechanism of insurance is very simple. People who are exposed to thesame risks come together and agree that, if any one of the members suffers aloss, the others will share the loss and make good to the person who lost. Allpeople who send goods by ship are exposed to the same risk related to waterdamage, ship sinking, piracy, etc. those owning factories are not exposed tothese risks, but they are exposed to different kinds of risks like, fire, hailstorms,earthquakes, lightening, burglary, etc. like this, different kinds of risks can beidentified and separate groups, made including those exposed to such risks. Bythis method, the risk is spread among the community and the likely big impacton one is reduced to smaller manageable impacts on all.If a Jumbo Jet with more than 350 passenger‘s crashes, the loss would run intoseveral Crores of rupees. No airline would be able to bear such a loss. It isunlikely that many Jumbo Jets will crash at the same time. If 100 airlinecompanies flying Jumbo Jets, come together into an insurance pool, wheneverone of the jumbo jets in the pool crashes, the loss to be borne by each airlinewould come down to a few Lakhs of rupees. Thus, insurance is a business‗sharing‘. 13 Jims-kalkaji
  14. 14. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report)ROLE OF INSURANCE IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT For economic development, investments are necessary. Investments are made out of savings. A life insurance company is a major instrument for the mobilization of savings of people, particularly from the middle and lower income groups. These savings are channelled into investments for economic growth. An insurance company‘s strength lies in the fact that huge amounts come by way of premiums. Every premium represents a risk that is covered by that premium. In effect, therefore, these vast amounts represent pooling of risks. The funds are collected and held in trust for the benefit of the policy holders. The management of insurance companies is required to keep this aspect in mind and make all its decisions in ways that benefit the community. This applies also to its investments. This is why successful insurance companies would not be found investing in speculative ventures. Their investments benefit the society at large. The system of insurance provides numerous direct and indirect benefits to the individual and his family as well as to industry and commerce and to the community and the nation as a whole. Those who insure, both individuals and corporate, are directly benefited because they are protected from the consequences of the loss that may be caused by the accident or fortuitous event. Insurance, thus, in a sense protects the capital in industry and releases the capital for further expansion and development of business and industry. The very existence of risk that is, uncertainty concerning the future, is a severe handicaps in economic activities. Insurance removes the fear, worry and anxiety associated with this future uncertainty and thus encourages free investment of capital in business enterprises and promotes efficient use of existing resources. (Contd.)14 Jims-kalkaji
  15. 15. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) Thus insurance encourages commercial and industrial development and there by contributes to a vigorous economy and increased national productivity. Present day organization of industry, commerce and trade depend entirely on insurance for their operation, banks and financial institutions lend money to industrial and commercial undertakings only on the basis of the collateral security of insurance. No bank or financial institution would advance loans on property unless it is insured against loss or damage by insurable perils. Insurers are closely associated with several agencies and institutions engaged in fire loss prevention, cargo loss prevention, cargo loss prevention, industrial safety and road safety. Before acceptance of a risk, insurers arrange survey and inspection of the property to be insured, by qualified engineers and other experts. The object of these surveys is not only to assess the risk for rating purposes but also to suggest and recommend to the insured, various improvements in the risk, which will attract lower rates of premium and what is more important , reduce the loss potential. For example, burglary surveyors make recommendation in regard to security measures such as better locking system, appointment of Watchman, etc. Engineering surveys play a most useful part in accident prevention as valuable technical advice is provided in respect of plant and machinery. Insurance ranks with export trade, shipping and banking services as earner of foreign exchange to the country. It helps to earn foreign exchange and represent invisible exports.15 Jims-kalkaji

This is a preferred method with companiesthat have a finders fee program for their employees.Advertising is a toss of the dice. If it goes well, it can help you find idealcandidates in a regional, national, or international pool. If not, its a costlyinvestment yielding few results.

  63. 63. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) LIMITATIONS I didn‘t get complete feed from the people about the question as they are busy in their work and had less time to fill questioned. Sincerity of answering the questions cannot be judged. Time was the major constraint for me to understand the long process of recruitment and selection. Limited money available for project. FINDINGSWhy people are not ready to work with private players in life insurance? ORWhy people are not ready to work as an agent in any company?  In these days LIC created a very well image in the mind of General public because it is semi Government Company and also an oldest company. In short most people of Indian believe upon the LIC only.  During the training period we felt that most of people who are already working in insurance sector think that it is easy to sell the product of LIC than to sell the product of other life insurance company.  Most of people say that this job affects upon their social relation with other and also effect upon their business.  Most of people believe that private insurance companies carried out fraud activity that‘s why they never believe upon the private players.  People think that it is a time consuming activity and also required huge market skills.  Some people said that only greedy people like to work in insurance sector.  Because of three days compulsory training. 63 Jims-kalkaji
  64. 64. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) CONCLUSIONIn India, there is throat cut competition in the market of life insurance that brandservice which adopt new strategies for sales. I concluding the whole story it canbe said that people are much more aware about the aspects of life insurance andalso have knowledge about the role and act of agent but mostly peopleunwilling to work as life insurance agent and mostly people prefer to work withLIC because it is a semi government corporation. 64 Jims-kalkaji
  65. 65. MetLife INSURANCE (Training Report) SUGGESTIONS MetLife must give more advertisements on electronic media and print media, as it help in enhance its goodwill and more people are willing to work with reputed companies, through proper advertisement it become easy to sell the product. An insurance company must work with honesty to win the confident of its agent and general public. Duration of training must be reducing as in these day people have no extra time. Fees charged by companies from candidate for IRDA exam and training should reduce. Many other extra facilities must be provide to agent to attract them such local and foreign trips, special price on achieving a target, open bank account at free of cost. MetLife must organize more and more seminars and also participate in the job trade fairs to find out more candidates. Increase the commission of agents. Company must relic to candidate or other people that they are doing a social service for the welfare of society. Better career opportunity must be provided to an adviser, such as on role job, promotion etc. A special function must organize time to time in which the special prizes distribute among those agent who perform well. The duration of the process of recruitment and selection is too long (one and half month), during this process mostly candidate loss there interest, so there is an urgent need to reduce the duration of this period. Reduce the minimum premium amount it will help company to attract the agent of other company, as it increases the scope of market of its agent.65 Jims-kalkaji
