Bancassurance has long been recognized as a powerful distribution channel for insurance in India. However, this dynamic partnership between banks and insurance providers faces a critical challenge – the inability to tap into over ~90% of its client base due to the absence of a robust insight-driven strategy. Furthermore, the absence of fit-for-purpose segment-led affordable and inclusive insurance products exacerbates the issue. But the challenges don't end there. Even if banks manage to source insurance products from various providers, the dispensation process turns into a nightmare, as it necessitates the deployment of multiple IT systems at the point of sale. Building an entirely new system from scratch is an option fraught with high costs and low short-term revenue.
The Problem: A Missed Opportunity
Bancassurance businesses in India face a monumental challenge. Despite having access to an extensive client base through their banking networks, they have been unable to tap into a significant portion of this market. The reasons are clear:
1. Lack of Insight-Driven Strategy: The absence of a robust insight-driven strategy means that bancassurers often struggle to understand the unique needs and preferences of their diverse client base. Without this critical information, crafting tailored insurance solutions becomes a formidable challenge.
2. Absence of Fit-for-Purpose Products: Bancassurance providers face a shortage of simple, affordable and inclusive insurance products that cater to the specific demographics they serve. This lack of product diversity limits their ability to address the varied needs of their clients effectively. This challenge is observed even more so with PSU banks.
3. Dispensation Dilemma: Even if bancassurers manage to source insurance products from multiple providers, the process of dispensation becomes a logistical nightmare. The need to deploy various IT systems at the point of sale adds complexity and friction to the customer experience.
4. The Cost Barrier: Building an entirely new IT system is out of the question for many bancassurance businesses. The high initial costs and the promise of low short-term revenue make it an impractical solution.
