Bajaj Finserv rises 8 on report of stake buyout in insurance ventures

first_imgBajaj Finserv was asked by the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) on Monday to clarify on a news report that the company is planning to buy out the 26 percent stake held by its German partner in its two insurance ventures. The stock spurted more than 8 percent on the BSE during the day and was trading at Rs. 2,212,  a gain of 6.58 percent at around 11.20 a.m.”The Exchange has sought clarification from Bajaj Finserv Ltd with reference to the news appeared in newspaper Mint ‘Bajaj Finserv is likely to buy out Allianz’s stakes in Bajaj Allianz Life’. The reply is awaited,” the exchange said.Financial services company Bajaj Finserv holds 74 percent in the two insurance companies namely Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance company Ltd and Bajaj General Insurance Company Ltd.The cost of acquisition is expected to be about Rs. 10,000 crore, the Mint reported, citing three sources who are aware of the development.”Bajaj is willing to buy Allianz’s 26% stake each in the two firms. As per the fair-valuation method, Bajaj will have to invest around Rs.10,000 crore to buy Allianz’s stakes in the two insurance companies,” the daily quoted one of the sources as saying.A senior Bajaj Finserve confirmed that the company has initiated talks with Allianz.”The discussions between Bajaj and Allianz are on. No final decision has been taken yet on whether Bajaj will buy Allianz’s stake or a third party will come and acquire Allianz’s holding in the two insurance JVs,” Sanjiv Bajaj, managing director at Bajaj Finserv, told the Mint.The Narendra Modi government raised the foreign direct investment (FDI) limit in the insurance sector from 26 percent to 49 percent in March this year. Since then, foreign partners of many joint venture companies have been increasing their stakes in the companies formed with equity participation by Indian companies.There are 24 life insurance and 28 general insurance companies in India.The biggest player in the life insurance is state-run Life Insurance Corporation of India with an almost 70 percent share.last_img read more

Dutch Queen Maxima hails Bangladeshs progress over financial inclusion

first_imgQueen Maxima speaks at a views-exchange meeting with development partners and financial technology (Fintech) sector at the UN offices on Wednesday. Photo: UNBUN secretary-general’s special advocate for inclusive finance for development (UNSGSA) Queen Maxima on Wednesday said financial inclusion can empower women and accelerate Bangladesh’s progress as she noted significant progress made so far in the country.”Financial inclusion has increased from 31 per cent in 2014 to 50 per cent in 2017 and so this is actually very exciting,” she said, adding that she is excited with Bangladesh’s progress during the two and half years from her last visit.The visiting Dutch Queen made the remarks at a views-exchange meeting with development partners and financial technology (Fintech) sector, organised and hosted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) at the UN offices in the city.She said: “This is primarily has happened through mobile financial services, so basic technology has played a very important role. Just to give an idea, it went from 2.7 per cent in 2014 to 21 per cent in 2017.””So of course, given the high-density population of Bangladesh, it’s actually very good because with that amount of people, all the distance you need to move to actually have any access is a lot higher than other countries,” said the Dutch queen.However, Maxima also pointed out a number of issues that are holding Bangladesh back in terms of full financial inclusion, or financial inclusion that ‘affects’ all of the Sustainable Development Goals, with gender disparity on top of the list.”Sixty-five per cent of Bangladeshi men have accounts, compared to only 36 per cent of women. Bangladesh’s gender gap in financial access grew a staggering 20 percentage points from 2014 to 2017,” she added.Earlier Sudipto Mukerjee, resident representative of UNDP, welcomed the queen and thanked her for visiting Bangladesh twice as the UN secretary-general’s special advocate for inclusive finance for development.He said Queen Maxima’s second visit shows her commitment to improving women’s access to financial services and supporting women entrepreneurs in Bangladesh.Representatives of the Fintech stakeholders and development partners pointed out their observations, suggestions and areas of development to increase financial inclusion and lower inequalities to aid Bangladesh in its progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.Members of key Fintech organisations like Grameen Phone, bKash, Brac Bank, Bank Asia, Surecash, D Money, Shop Up, IFDC and regulators Bangladesh Bank were present in the roundtables.Key development partners like DFID, IFC, Swiss Embassy, World Bank, UNCDF, Nathan Associates, USAID, IMF, GiIZ, Swisscontact and Helvetas were also present.Sudipto urged all to finalise and implement the people-centric National Financial Inclusion Strategy soon, to reduce the inequality and fight poverty.Following the roundtable, the Queen met the beneficiaries of UNDP’s strengthening women’s ability for productive new opportunities (SWAPNO), which is a social transfer project for ultra-poor women to be engaged in public works essential for the economic and social life for rural communities.One of Swapno’s key agenda is financial inclusion so that the beneficiaries – ultra poor women who were widowed, divorced, abandoned or left with a disabled husband – can reap the benefits of financial services to make their lives and that of their children more secure.In a pilot initiative of the project, more than 2,700 beneficiaries got access to bank accounts and more than Tk 120 million in wages have been disbursed. Around 1,000 women were given financial literacy training.Afterwards, the queen visited UNDP’s Access to Information Programme (a2i)’s union digital centre at the union parishad office of Narsingdi’s Zinardi union and learnt of how it provides services to the people specially women through its digital centre.The union digital centres have revolutionised financial inclusion in Bangladesh by bringing banking services to the people at the union level.Queen Maxima arrived here on Tuesday evening to promote people’s access to financial services and see the financial inclusion progress in Bangladesh.Bangladesh is currently developing a national strategy to improve people’s access to financial services.Queen Maxima, who was appointed UNSGSA in 2009, visited Bangladesh in her capacity as UNSGSA in November 2015.In her capacity, she advises the UN secretary-general and works worldwide to make safe and affordable financial services available to all, including low-income groups and small and medium-sized enterprises.She has been honorary patron of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) since 2011.last_img read more
