ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company Ltd
“ICICI Lombard is the largest non-life private sector insurer in India. It is a JV between ICICI Bank and Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd of Canada. Backed by strong parentage, and under penetration of non-life insurance business in India, the company has been on a strong growth path with its Gross Direct Premium Income growing by 26.7% over FY2015-17.
Outlook & Valuation: At the upper price band of `661 the issue is offered at 8x its FY2017 BV. While on the reported numbers it might appear to be fairly valued, we believe with strong potential to deliver high double digit growth for next multiple years, the issue looks decently priced, and hence we have a SUBSCRIBE rating on the issue.”
