Abstract

Why do banks and insurance companies get into bancassurance? Little has been studied of this phenomenon in emerging markets. Bancassurance in India has taken a flying start. Economies of scale and scope make such an alliance attractive for both parties. We examine the factors behind bancassurance by examining the developments and performing quantitative tests.

Keywords: Bancassurance, banking, insurance, deregulation, India
