    "Owing to improved profitability the company's sensitivity to tax-rate has also reduced significantly while dominance of customer friendly ULIP product has helped insulate it from potential regulatory changes on traditional products," the broking firm has noted.

    "We value ICICI Prudential Life using the embedded value methodology and estimate the company to deliver new business value of Rs 20.4 billion in FY20E, while operating RoEV remains healthy at 19.5%. We value IPRU at Rs 684.6 billion using P/EV multiple of 2.7x (implied new business multiple of 21x). This implies a price target of Rs 480 per share - an upside of 23%.

We value core business on five year AOCF/EV yield methodology at Rs 279 per share and assign Rs 43 per share for life insurance business to arrive at a TP of Rs322. Key risks for the company include margin pressure due to high lead volatility and faster than expected EV penetration," Centrum has said in a report.
