02:00pm - 02:40pm Panel Discussion: Insurance - Emerging picture

The insurance sector was seen as a playground of multinational firms with a short-term partnership with local companies till FDI norms were sorted. However, the sector has evolved very differently and in many cases it is the local partner that has taken over the reins. What’s more, even PE firms see this as an area where they can (jointly) build an exposure. How will the sector shape up in the next decade?
