Sanjeev Srinivasan, Managing Director and CEO, Bharti AXA General Insurance, said in a statement, “Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, FY21 has been a challenging year for the industry and especially for us at Bharti AXA General Insurance.

While the overall demand for goods and services across the economy has been relatively low, consumers felt an evident need of insurance on the back of the uncertainty the pandemic has brought.This changing consumer behaviour helped us respond with required solutions and agility through tech advancements. Further, the year demanded realignment with focus on the health and commercial lines segment, and we managed to drive growth in these lines of business on account of increased awareness and launch of new products.”

While the health segment saw a 11 per cent growth at ₹457 crore in FY2020-21 against ₹410 crore last year, Retail health grew by 48 per cent driven by launch of new products and increased awareness due to the pandemic.
