This JV between business conglomerate Murugappa group and Japan’s largest insurance group, Mitsui Sumitomo, has achieved a gross written premium (GWP) of Rs. 1855 crore. The profit after tax (PAT) surged to Rs.70 crore this fiscal, from Rs.60 crore last year.  The combined operating ratio during the FY 2013-14 before absorption of motor and declined pool losses was 101.3 per cent. The solvency margin for this year stood at 1.61 (1.42).

Managing Director S S Gopalrathnam reckoned that the company’s strategy of identifying the niche markets and nurturing them had paved the way for the company’s handsome growth.
