ICICI pru Life reported a mixed set of numbers as growth moderates however, positives are margin improves, mix improved towards non-linked business. Annual premium equivalent (APE) declined by 23% primarily led by a decline in ULIP (down 45%) but non-participating business reported growth. ICICI Pru Life's non-linked savings business increased 50% YoY to 30% of overall APE in 2QFY21 from 15% in 2QFY20 and 24% in 1QFY21. VNB margin improved by 636bps YoY /300 bps QoQ led by higher protection tariffs, increased non-par business, and controlled opex. We have a positive view on ICICI pru Life considering the gradual improvement in VNB margin and structural tailwind for insurance product demand.
