TPL Insurance’s rating is driven by its strong position in the relevant universe of players. The Company’s efficient management systems, in tandem with sustained growth and operational efficiency are reflected in the rating. Further, consistency in implementing prudent financial strategies also played a pivotal role in the maintenance of the entity’s rating. The aforementioned factors also enabled the perpetuation of a stable outlook. Company is driving GPW mainly from motor segment (~72.3%) as a result of which concentration risk is surfaced. Additionally, impetus is derived from abundant liquidity in the form of high liquid investments and cash reserves. Reinsurance treaties provide sufficient coverage to risks. The rating is supported by the induction of foreign investors. German-based institution, DEG and another foreign company namely Finnish Fund for Industrial Cooperation Ltd. acquired 15.87% and 17.02% stake in the Company respectively. This investment will provide further impetus to TPLI’s vision of introducing innovative and tech-driven products, such as yield-based crops and livestock insurance thereby increasing the penetration of insurance in Pakistan. Moreover, other than organic growth, company is looking for inorganic growth by way of acquisition/amalgamation with local insurance company operating within Pakistan. TPL Insurance is expanding its footings across the digital market as it has recently become the 1st Insurer in Pakistan with its presence in the Metaverse, whereby focusing on the next generation of its customers.
