Reliance General enters ‘bancassurance’ deal with co-operative bank

Chennai, Aug 9 (IANS) Non-life insurer Reliance General Insurance Company Ltd on Tuesday announced a bancassurance tie-up with Shamrao Vithal Co-operative Bank (SVCB).

“We are delighted to have SVC Bank on board. This tie-up will enable RGI (Reliance General Insurance) to leverage SVC Bank’s unparalleled retail and SME (small and medium enterprises) pan-India customer base, robust distribution network and strong brand name,” Rakesh Jain, CEO, Reliance General was quoted as saying in the statement issued by the company.

“This is the fourth big partnership we have had in bancassurance. We have already tied-up with IndusInd Bank, Bank of India and Andhra Bank and expect to boost our top line by upto 10 per cent through these tie-ups and alliances,” said Jain.
