ICICI Bank-backed life insurance arm, ICICI Prudential posted a net profit of 156 crore for the quarter ending June 30, 2022 (Q1FY23) compared to a net loss of 186 crore in the corresponding period a year ago, primarily due to significantly lower claims and provisions due to COVID19. The insurer’s value of new business (VNB) jumped by a whopping 31.6% year-on-year to 471 crore in Q1FY23.

In the latest quarter, under the new business, APE posted a growth of 24.7% to 1,520 crore compared to 1,219 crore in Q1FY22. Also, new business premium stood at 3,184 crore registering a growth of 24.4% as compared to 2,559 cr for Q1-FY2022.

With APE of 1,520 crore, the VNB margin was at 31% for Q1-FY2023 as compared to 28.0% for FY2022. The increase in VNB margin is primarily on account of a shift in the underlying product mix.

Further, annuity APE rose 98 crore in Q1FY23 versus 58 crore in Q1FY22 – registering a robust growth of 69%. Savings APE grew from 892 crore to 1,092 crore in the same period.
