Aegon Religare Life Insurance – New hope for Indian Insurance Industry

POSTED BY Jagoinvestor ON October 6, 2008 COMMENTS (13)

Aegon Religare Life Insurance which is recently renamed as Aegon Life Insurance is a new Player in Indian Insurance Market.

This company seems to have clear understanding about the Insurance Market and what India needs exactly, there main focus is on Term Insurance and that makes it respectable in my opinion, its not like other companies concentrating on Endowment and Money Back plans and tag them as Great Insurance products, which is nothing but Saving and investment products with a pinch of Insurance.

    Hi Manish,

    My Father’s Age is 62. Can I get the Term Insurance Plan for my Father? My Father is Having Diabetes. Can you Suggest me Which Plan will be Better and Around how much do i have to pay as a premium? Plz Help

    1. I dont think you will get it for him. First his age, and his illness and who is financially dependent on him ? Given the profile, no company will give him insurance

    Hi Manish,
    First of all I thank You for yors articles are an eye opener to all. Especially for young generation. keep it up.

    My age is 24+. & planning to buy Aegon Religer’s iTerm Plan sum of 50Lacs.
    If I need to do any change in this or split this for 25 Lac. each in anothere insurer.
    Plz. guide me. awaiting for your valuable answer.


    1. Ryan

      Its recommended that you split it in two , but if you take less than 50 lacs in iTerm ,it would be costly , check the premium , Better split it between LIC + ICICI or LIC + iTerm , are you sure 50 lacs is what you want to leave for your family , will it replace you ?

    There is a big difference in premium amount numbers that we get using premium calculator links available with this post (pointing to aegon religare )
    and the one mentioned below(got from one of your earlier blog posts):
    How is this possible ?

    1. manish says:

      The link gives the premium for iTerm policy , this post talks about regular term insurance policy 🙂

    But Manish, have you compared the other plans of Aegon Religare ?

    And, also since it’s a pvt. co. the common folks will be having less trust when compared with LIC.

    1. manish says:


      I have seen other products of Aegon religare .. its main concentration is only on term insurance not on other Products .. even the ULIP from Aegon religare is the best in the market right now . just 5% Allocation charges which makes it an attractive ULIP .

      Since its a new one , It will definately have problems of in gaining trust of public . cant do anything .. I am risk taker , so i choose to believe them .


      1. Mithun John Jacob says:

        I appreciate what you’ve said. But, I was talking about the herd mentality(OVER-affinity towards LIC) and the aversion towards all pvt. players !
