About the stock, Motilal Oswal commented, "The share of higher-margin products such as protection and annuity/non-par savings has increased in recent years, thus reducing dependence on ULIPs. On the distribution side, the share of banks (excluding ICICI Bank) has increased over the years (off a low base), supporting the diversification in its distribution mix. We expect VNB margins to improve slightly and project IPRU to deliver 21% and 23% CAGR in new business APE and VNB over FY22-24E, respectively, thus enabling an operating RoEV of 16.9% in FY24E."

The firm added, "The addition of new-age partners and a wider presence across traditional channels will boost its business growth. The share of banca channel (excluding ICICI Bank) has increased to 14% in FY22 from 5% in FY18. These initiatives will provide the company with diversification benefits and drive an optimal business mix, thereby supporting margins."
