Aegon Religare expects 15-20% growth this fiscal
Dec 12 2013 , Hyderabad
Aegon Religare Chief Operating Officer Yateesh Srivastava said the company may launch as many as 12 new products before the end of the fiscal.
The company did Rs 400 crore business in terms of premium collection during last year, out of which Rs 125 crore was contributed by new premium collection, he said.
"I think the industry itself is coming out from low growth and in fact negative growth last year. I think 15 to 20 per cent growth is acceptable and reasonable figure of growth (for the company during the current fiscal).
"I think the 30 to 40 per cent growth may never happen (under the current circumstances). It is going to be 12 to 18 per cent at the industry level," Srivastava told reporters here.
He said Aegon Religare has refiled eight of the existing products with IRDA to make them compliant with the new guidelines while four new products are in the pipeline to be launched during January next year.
"So we should be launching 12 products in the course of January," he said.
