How to Evaluate the LIC IPO? podcast

Jan 28, 2022

Insurance companies don't have to pay taxes on the entire cash flow they receive as premiums. That is because only the surplus left over after the claims on the policies issued have expired is considered as income.

Other kinds of businesses, including other financial entities, must pay taxes on revenue and profits before investing.

But insurance companies get to invest all the money first. This is a stupendous advantage.

It's like having the freedom to invest your entire savings right up front and paying taxes on your income a decade later.

But insurance is not an easy sector for investors to figure out.

The financial statements are full of jargon. And in fact they don't resemble financials of any other sector.

Watch this video to know how you could create wealth in insurance stocks.
