CHAPTER I : PROFILE OF THE COMPANY
Introduction
MEANING OF INSURANCE

The business of insurance is related to the protection of the economic value of assets.
Every asset has a value. The asset would have been created through the efforts of the
owner, in the expectation that, either through the income generated there from or
some other output, some of his needs would be met. In the case of a motorcar, it
provides comfort and convenience in transportation.

There is no direct income. There is a normally expected lifetime for the asset during
which time, it is expected to perform. The owner, aware of this, can so manage his
affairs that by the end of that life time, a substitute is made available to ensure that
the value or income is not lost. However, if the asset gets lost earlier, being
destroyed or made non-functional, through an accident or other unfortunate event,
the owner and those deriving benefitsthere from suffer. Insurance is a mechanism
that helps to reduce such adverse consequences.

Life Assurance

It is the business of effecting contracts of insurance upon human life, including any
contract whereby the payment of money is assured (except death by accident only)
or the happening of specified any contingencies dependent on human life, like death
a specified age. The contract would be subject to the payment of premiums for a
term,

Non-Life Insurance or General Insurance

Even though conventional classification of General Insurance has been in three


branches-

1.Fire Insurance
2.Marine Insurance
3.Miscellaneous (Accident)
Insurance,In modern times, it is classified as follows:

a)Insurance of Person
b)Insurance of Property
c)Insurance of Interest
d)Insurance of Liability

Importance of INSURANCE

The entire effort of human life is to proceed from uncertainty to certainty. The
rigmarole of life proceeds with first acquiring the wherewithal to earn a living and
then striving for its betterment and ensuring that the comfort and pleasure derived
from a physical commodity or a human being continues.

It is at the latter stage that the mechanism of Insurance comes in play.The concept of
insurance is in essence related to the protection of the economic value of assets.
Every asset whether physical or in form of a human being has a value. The asset is
built up in the expectation that, either through the income generated there from or
some other output, some needs of the individual would be met. For example, in the
case of an industry its production is sold and income generated. In the case of a
vehicle, it provides comfort and convenience in transportation.

However there is a normally expected life cycle for every asset during which time it
is expected to perform its assigned role. So, a prudent individual can manage his
affairs so that by the end of that life cycle, a substitute is in place to ensure continued
benefit/comfort.

However, if due to an accident or other unfortunate event, the asset gets destroyed or
made non- functional, the person deriving benefits there, from suffer. Insurance is
the mechanism that helps to soften the impact of such adverse consequences by
providing for some monetary substitution to face such unforeseen circumstances.The
need of insurance arises from the chances of an accidental occurrence destroying or
making an asset non-functional. Such loss producing eventualities are called perils
e.g. Fire, floods, breakdowns, lightning, earthquakes, etc

faces very tough competition from other leaders in the industry. Bajaj Allianz
needs to work hard in order to stay competitive insurance market. Further, the

simple terms, so that customer able to make an informed decision.Players like
.ICICI Pru and SBI life with low premium for the similar plans

Govt. policies :Current Govt. policies do not encourage gross domestic.3


savings. If the tax liability of the service class rises, the customer will have little
.money to invest

LIC : LIC has woken up from sleep and is following competitive strategies. .4
Its huge surplus in Life Fund gives a capability to lodge Price war

Suggestions
A serious effort in media coverage and increase in employee benefits

Bajaj Allianz should now try to identify the gap between current level of
.customer service and customer expectations
:Some of the strategies being recommended are as follows
 Product Differentiation : Offering a product that is distinctly different from
.other products available in the market

. Innovativeness: Identifying means of a delightful customer experience

. Riders: These are additional offerings along with the main product

 Flexibility: The companies should make their products flexible for the
.convenience of their customer

 Hassle Free Service : All bureaucracy in customer interactions should be


.eliminated

 Proper Policy Documentation : Wrong interpretations/ non-awareness of


policy document by the customer may have serious implications in the long
term and the possibility of the same should be alleviated by the insurance
.companies
CHAPTER III : ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL REPORTS OF THE

COMPANY

Financial Analysis of 4 Years


Theoretical Analysis of the above mentioned Financial Data And also
Comparison with Last year

Despite conditions which were not conducive for growth of gross premium, the
Company managed to maintain a growth rate which was more than twice that of
the market. Company’s gross written premium (excluding share of premium from
the IMTPIP), grew by 33.3% during 2008-09 and, despite intense price
competition, the company maintained its second position among the private sector
companies in terms of gross written premium.

The market share of the company (excluding premium of specialized insurers)


increased from 7.2% in 2007-08 to 8.5% in 2008-09. Including the share of inward
reinsurance business from the IMTPIP, the growth rate would have been 43.0%.

During 2008-09, the company clocked gross written premium of Rs. 24,045 Mn
excluding share of business from the IMTPIP as compared to Rs 18,033 Mn in
2007-08. Including share of inward business from the IMTPIP, the gross written
premium amounted to Rs. 25,780 Mn. On account of your Company’s policy of
steadily
increasing it’s retention in line with it’s capital base, the net earned premium for
the year (excluding net premium from inward business of the IMTPIP), rose to Rs.
13,266 Mn, an increase of 58.6% over theprevious year of Rs. 8,366 Mn.

Including the net premium arising out of the share of business from the IMTPIP,
the net premium for theyear 2008-09 was Rs. 14,134 Mn. Although de-tariffication
had an adverse effect on the price per policy, the number of policies sold continued
to grow. In the year under review, your Company sold 6.61 Mn. policies as against
4.90 Mn. policies sold in the previous year. This growth indicates that despite
severe price competition, more customers preferred your Company’s service
offerings, drawn by it’s strong brand image, convenience of buying and satisfaction
with its service levels.

The total incurred claims for the current year including actuarial provisions but
excluding share of claims of the IMTPIP, were Rs. 8,375 Mn. as against Rs. 5555
Mn. in the previous year. The number of claims reported during the year was
413,281 as compared to 309,160 in the previous year.

Profit Analysis

CHAPTER IV : LESSONS LEARNT

Practical knowledge Gained

Experience
I had a very good experience while working as in Bajaj Allianz. My
training was of two months during which I worked in the following
:department

- Sales and Marketing

Under Sales and Marketing I learned a variety of techniques of how to


attract customers. Theoretical Concepts like Product Differentiation and
Target Markets were also used . Sales promotion was done on a wide
scale basis .

Various strategies of marketing were used to lure customers to the product


of the company . Drawbacks of other companies were made known to us
so that we could use the same in selling our products and countering the
customer’s queries .

Also I became a certified Insurance Consultant ,by clearing the exam


.prescribed by the IRDA

Knowledge

After the completion of summer training I gained the following


:knowledge and skills regarding the following
1. How do insurance companies function

2. What are ULIP’s and why are they so important for a person.

3. How to plan your future through retirement solutions.

4. What are the drawbacks of LIC , the biggest player in the


Insurance Industry.

5. Various affects of the share markets on the plans and their


growth.

6. Techniques of communication and ways to attract customers .

7. Various other components of insurance .

PROBLEMS FACED DURING TRAINING

The old and out dated technique of tele marketing is used to prospect customers. The
company must sponsor shows and give presentations in corporate houses. Also a
genuine effort should be made for media coverage. Coordination among employees is
. required to a great extent

:Some of the main problems in selling the policies are

 Large amount of competition (15 players in the market)

 Other brands are well advertised and have higher recall value

 LIC is considered a safer option

 Face competition from banks and mutual funds

 High premium policies are difficult to market

 Incorrect perception about insurance

 Interested prospects might have a lack of time and postpone investments

 Customers get defensive if you cold call

 Short term plans are available only at large premium

 Some prospects have already invested and are not interested in further

investments

 Consumers don’t want to undertake medical examinations

 Large amount of documentation

 Customers do not like their money locked up for many years

 Lack of awareness about the unit linked funds in the market


 Customer ignorant about the importance of insurance hence usually like to

keep money in Fixed Deposits.

 Bajaj is private company hence customers are a apprehensive to invest in the

company

SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT


 Advertise about the company and its products – it motivates individuals to

purchase insurance

 Create a positive perception about insurance

 Speak about the good features a plan offers like high returns, life cover, tax

benefits, accident cover

 Try to sell the product/plan which the consumer requires and not the plan

where the advisors benefit is higher

 Improve the efficiency in operations

 Attract the youth of India with higher returns on investment as returns are

the motivating factor which influence purchase of insurance

 Promote insurance in colleges and corporate houses

 Bajaj Allianz is actually Bajaj auto & Allianz SE – BAJAJ has a good

brand name and this brand name could be used to give a push to its products

 Bajaj Allianz could have a brand ambassador or a mascot to promote its

services

 Should have partial withdrawals from the first year onwards

 Tap the rural market where there is large potential

 Make products more straight forward – reduce complexities

 Large scale promotion should be done.


 A better work environment should be created as there is too much politics

involved between SMs .

 Norms and rules of the company should made a little flexible as it would

help the ICs .

 Monetary incentives should be a bit higher than present.

:RECOMMENDATIONS

I would suggest the Students of AIT{Ansal Institute Of Technology} to


very well go to Bajaj Allianz to have share of valuable experience and
learning . These are the following points which would benefit the students
-: if they work in Bajaj Allianz

 Improvement of Marketing Skills : An improvement in the


marketing and communication skills would definitely occur as the
students would be trained accordingly and also be given practical
exposure.

 Valuable experience and also a opportunity to earn money :


The students can gain valuable experience in sales and marketing
which are the two major fields in any industry .Also an opportunity
to earn money .

 Association with trained and pleasant Managers: The trainees


can interact and learn a lot from the well trained and polite staff of
the company.

SUGGESTIONS
Here are some suggestions, which may help to
strengthen the firm further

Allianz. Has the lack of good
communication skills and training. So training should
be easy.

promotion.

than others.

policies of Bajaj Allianz.

• The company should give personal attention to


each customer.

customer at the time of claim
settlement.
