SBI Life Insurance Q4 Results: Net Profit surges 4% to Rs 811 cr

SBI Life Insurance

SBI Life Insurance, one of India’s leading insurance providers, unveiled its fourth-quarter financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31. The company announced a notable increase in net profit and premium income despite challenges posed by shifting customer preferences in the insurance landscape.

For the quarter ending March 31, SBI Life Insurance witnessed a 4 per cent YoY (year-on-year) rise in net profit, reaching ₹811 crore. This growth was complemented by a remarkable surge in premium income, jumped by 26 per cent to ₹251.16 billion rupees. Such robust performance underscores the company’s resilience and strategic positioning in the competitive insurance market.

However, amidst these positive outcomes, SBI Life also encountered a weaker new business margin, primarily attributed to its portfolio’s growing share of low-margin products. The value of new business (VNB) rose by 9.5 per cent to ₹55.50 billion rupees, yet the VNB margin contracted to 28.1 per cent from 30.1 per cent in the previous year. This trend reflects the evolving dynamics of customer preferences, particularly towards unit-linked insurance plans (ULIPs), which typically yield lower margins.

SBI Life Insurance remains adept at managing its margins effectively and leveraging its low-cost structure. Notably, the ULIP segment constituted 60% of the company’s overall product mix by annualised premium equivalent (APE), compared to 55 per cent in the preceding year.

Moreover, the company also experienced a remarkable surge in investment income, which witnessed a more than nine-fold increase to ₹108.12 billion rupees. This surge in investment income contributed significantly to the overall profitability of SBI Life Insurance.
