Global Bancassurance Market Overview:

The bank staff becomes the point of sale or point of contact for the customers in this partnership.

Insurance policies that are sold by the banks are processed and further administered by the insurance company itself. This partnership can prove to be profitable for both sides. The banks can make additional revenue by promoting and selling the insurances, on the other hand, the insurance companies expand their customer base without expanding their sales team or paying extra commissions to the brokers or agents. This partnership has proved as an effective distribution channel in many countries.

The Reserve Bank of India and the insurance development and regulatory authority have a set of guidelines for companies that couple to form bancassurance. Based on the equity a bank should hold in a joint venture, the highest allowable value of equity, the type of banks and insurance companies that can couple together and the operation of bancassurance are all the factors that are regulated by RBI and IRDA. The IRDA has very recently drafted guidelines to promote open architecture in bancassurance. Currently, a bank has a tie-up with only one life insurer and one non-life insurer. But in the new model, the banks necessarily have to have multiple tie-ups.
