Nippon Life To Boost Investment In Indian Insurer

Nippon Life Insurance Company is thinking about raising its stake in Reliance Life Insurance Company Limited, life insurance arm of Indian conglomerate Reliance Group. Nippon Life owns a 26% interest in Reliance and plans to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in order to lift the figure as high as the proposed new limit of 49%. The two sides are in talks and will likely seal the deal as soon as the legislation raising caps on foreign investment in Indian insurers passes, according to Reliance Group Managing Director Amitabh Jhunjhunwala. Relevant legislation establishing the new cap could pass as early as November.

Nippon Life Insurance Co. Reports Earnings Results for the Year 2013; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

Nippon Life Insurance Co. reported earnings results for the year 2013. For the year, the company reported core business profit of JPY 592.4 billion for the year ended in March, up 8.4% from the previous year. Insurance premium revenue dropped 9.7% to JPY 4,825.5 billion as sales were sluggish for single-premium whole life insurance policies, whose premium rates were raised in April 2013, although mainstay products and educational endowment plans enjoyed robust sales. For the year 2014, the company expects its revenue and core business profit to fall as the Bank of Japan's quantitative and qualitative easing steps have driven down yields on Japanese government bonds, a main investment target for the company.
