Mumbai, June 8, 2020: BSE Ebix Insurance Broking Private Limited, a joint venture of BSE and Ebix Fincorp Exchange Pvt Ltd., has completed issuance of over 1000 motor insurance policies on its platform.


BSE Ebix had beta launched its operations on February 7, 2020 where it offered private car and two-wheeler auto insurance. The platform completed issuance of a total of 1,195 policies and collected total premium of 40Lakh with 9.25 cr as the total insurance coverage offered so far.


Since the commencement of beta launch, the BSE Ebix Insurance Distribution Platform has been growing 100% month on month in premium collected.


BSE Ebix platform has already registered 6396 Point of Sale Persons (PoSPs) out of which 2779 are certified and ready to do business.  PoSPs are able to complete the issuance of the policy in a completely automated hi tech platform from start to finish including comparison of various policies, compare premium quoted by various insurance companies, select a specific policy based on the comparisons, make payments and collect the insurance policy issued in e format by the insurance company in close to 5 minutes.


The automation of the end to end processes in insurance sales for PoSPs has allowed many PoSPs to increase their business and eliminate the paperwork, multiple signatures, Cheque payments, submission of documents with the company, reconciliation of payments and many other manual processes which reduce their ability to conduct business currently.


Recently, BSE Ebix launched health insurance products on its platform.


In order to offer full bouquet of insurance to its diverse customer needs, BSE Ebix also plans to venture into insurance offerings for commercial vehicles like Trucks, Tractor, Auto, Taxi and commercial products like fire insurance, liability insurance and shopkeeper insurance.


By the end of June 2020, BSE Ebix plans to enroll Aditya Birla Health Insurance Co Ltd, Star Health & Allied Insurance Co Ltd in Health products and Aditya Birla Sun Life Insurance Co Ltd, Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Co Ltd and ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Co Ltd. in Life insurance products on BSE Ebix platform.
