An embedded value is a common valuation indicator that represents a life insurance company’s estimated value to shareholders. The EV is calculated by adding the insurer’s present value of future profits to the net asset value (NAV).
It needs to be noted that the future income of a life insurer is the premiums they received from policyholders, while future outgoings are the claims they pay to policyholders along with other expenses. The difference between future income and outgoings combined with income on and release of statutory reserves results in future profit.
Meanwhile, NAV is the difference between the total assets and liabilities of the company.
On BSE, LIC shares closed at Rs. 678.90 apiece up by 2.34%. At the closing price, LIC’s market valuation is Rs. 4,29,404.09 crore.
