PAT jumped 35% YoY, primarily owing to a Lower claim ratio and better combined ratio. The combined ratio improved by 30bps YoY to 100.1% due to lower claims in motor insurance. Retail health indemnity grew by 39% YoY in H1FY21 (48% YoY in Q2FY21). ICICI Lombard received 17000 covid-19 claims, which led to an outflow of Rs.115cr, if India does not witness the second wave of Covid Case then it will be positive for ICICI Lombard.

In current times the indemnity segment will help to improve growth. currently, it trades at 41x of trailing earnings, we have a positive view on ICICI Lombard considering the healthy return ratio and the industry has a structural demand tailwind.”
