Computerisation of operations and updating of technology to be carried out in the insurance industry The committee emphasized that in order to improve the customer services and increase the coverage of the insurance industry should be opened up to competition.

The committee felt the need to provide greater autonomy to insurance companies in order to improve their performance and enable them to act as independent companies with economic motives. For this purpose, it had proposed setting up an independent regulatory body.

1.2.7 MAJOR POLICY CHANGES
Insurance sector has been opened up for competition from Indian private insurance companies with the enactment of Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority Act, 1999 (IRDA Act).

The industry is also promoting micro-insurance as a viable business opportunity and integrating the same with the poverty alleviation programmes of various state governments.

Poor insurance literacy and awareness, high transaction costs, inadequate regulations and inadequate understanding of client needs and expectations have restricted demand for micro-insurance products.

INDIAN INSURANCE INDUSTRY - CHALLENGES

1. NEW COMERS

With more companies coming up every day, and the growing demand of the industry makes the market very competitive. Until and unless the existing companies make a mark and create their very own brand name it would be quite tough to sustain their

35

position in the market. There is also a probability of big companies taking over the new emerging companies.

2. SUPPLIER POWER

The people providing capital act as big terror as opportunity always lies in the big hands and they can any day tempt good insurer from small companies to their own company.

3. BUYER POWER

Individuals never stand a chance in front of big corporate sectors as they dominate the insurance industries with high potential of negotiation power.

4. PRESENCE OF SUBSTITUTES

The insurance industry is full of options and the large insurance companies offer the same services as others, be it in any sector - home, commercial, auto, health or life.

Other key challenges include retention of talent, no benchmarks available for costing and outdated risk tables and global level challenges like climate change, terrorism, regulatory intervention, inflation, legal risks etc.

CHAPTER 3 RESEARCH DESIGN 98 .

So there comes a need for the study of value at risk of the funds. no matter there is a high chance of return. They have to cover all the risk by managing asset allocation pattern efficiently. Thus the funds are exposed to huge risk. However. which is very volatile. The stock markets are volatile and hence there is always a risk on the funds which we invest in the stock market. This study helps us to analyse how volatile a fund is and also the risk associated with each fund. They have to be very careful in allocating the fund in different sectors to get a maximum return.2 TITLE OF THE STUDY Risk Analysis of Bharti AXA Life Insurance ULIP funds 3. how safe game they play the returns depends upon their asset allocation pattern. This research is going to help the investors to know the maximum amount of loss they might incur in future depending upon the value at risk of each fund.1 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM The fund managers of insurance companies are investing the maximum fund in stock market.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY • To calculate Value at Risk 99 .3. 3.

the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns. A volatile stock would have a high standard deviation. Normal Distribution: The normal distribution.• • To calculate maximum loss below expected loss To determine the worst daily loss 3.4 SCOPE OF THE STUDY The scope of the study is to find the value at risk of six investment funds under ULIP plan of Bharti AXA Life. The study will help the customers to know the maximum loss that they might incur in the next six months depending upon the fund. a continuous probability distribution. is the most commonly used probability distribution in finance.5 OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS Standard Deviation: In finance. The normal distribution 100 . standard deviation is applied to the annual rate of return of an investment to measure the investment's volatility (risk). In mutual funds. 3.

Unsystematic Risk: Risk that affects a very small number of assets. viz. Systematic Risk: The risk inherent to the entire market or entire market segment." Interest rates. unsystematic risk affects a very specific group of securities or an individual security. Expected return and standard deviation of return. There are three methods of calculating VAR: the historical method. And it is a bell-shaped distribution that is perfectly symmetric around the expected return. news that is specific to a small number of stocks. Value at Risk (VaR): It calculates the maximum loss expected (or worst case scenario) on an investment. recession and wars all represent sources of systematic risk because they will affect the entire market and cannot be avoided through diversification. Also known as "un-diversifiable risk" or "market risk. It is sometimes referred as specific risk. For example. such as a sudden strike by the employees of a company you have shares in.resembles a bell shaped curve. Systematic risk can be mitigated only by being hedged. Historical Method 101 . It is completely characterized by just two parameters. the variancecovariance method and the Monte Carlo simulation. Whereas this type of risk affects a broad range of securities. over a given time period and given a specified degree of confidence. 1.

The historical method simply re-organizes actual historical returns.which allow us to plot a normal distribution curve. 2. TYPE OF DATA To understand the performance and functioning of various funds. SOURCE OF DATA Secondary data 1) Fact sheets and reports of the company 102 . it requires that we estimate only two factors . 3. putting them in order from worst to best. In other words. from a risk perspective. Variance-Covariance Method This method assumes that stock returns are normally distributed. and sector-wise allocation of selected funds as the secondary data.6 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY TYPE OF STUDY It is an analytical study done to analyze the risk associated with the different funds of the company.an expected (or average) return and a standard deviation . It then assumes that history will repeat itself. we have collected fact sheets. performance measure statistics.

SAMPLING METHOD Sampling method is convenience sampling as all the data is available as secondary source. two are debt funds and remaining one is a balanced fund. Out of this. MS Excel was used. and research reports.Covariance method was also used to calculate the maximum loss that a customer might incur in future depending upon the value at risk of each fund.2) Information through websites . Descriptive Statistics was used for the purpose of calculating frequency and standard deviation. plan brochures. TECHNIQUES/TOOLS FOR ANALYSIS To evaluate the Risk Analysis of Bharti-AXA Life Insurance funds using Covariance. Variance . three are equity funds. METHOD OF DATA COLLECTION All the data has been collected using the secondary sources like websites. 103 . SAMPLE SIZE The sample size comprises of six different types of funds under Bharti AXA ULIP plans.

3) The study is done only for one ULIP product. 5) The inference has been drawn in general. a similar methodology would have to be applied to monthly data for different months. So the study may not hold good for all the time. Bright Stars Plus. because in all funds there are some advantages as well as some disadvantages. 104 . This would have to be undertaken in subsequent studies. 4) In order to generalize the results.LIMITATIONS 1) The study has been limited to only six funds 2) The data encompassing the performance of various funds was limited to only six months.

109 . Assuming that there are 124 trading sessions in the next 6 months we calculate the maximum loss that can occur.3 Table showing conversion of VaR to a different time period We are predicting the maximum loss that can occur in the next 6 months.The standard deviation shows the volatility of the fund. Conversion of Value at Risk to Different Time Period The maximum loss below the expected or average return is calculated using the formula Table 4. The curves are based on the standard deviation of the fund value.
