    Mumbai:  Turtlemint, India’s largest POSP InsurTech platform leveraged it’s unique (advisor meets customer via platform) hybrid model and is one of the few rare companies  to clock an incredible growth amidst one of the toughest business years in recent times.

    Turtlemint- One of the pioneers in the offline-online model in India, currently operates the largest PoSP networks in the country through its presence in more than 5000+ metros, cities, and towns covering 14,000+ pin codes.

Further, it is upbeat about covering all 19,000 pin codes in India by penetrating deeper into tier II and tier III cities, in alignment with the national agenda of financial inclusion.

    Turtlemint saw a growth of 110% in health insurance in Q1 FY 2021-22 as compared to Q1 FY2020-21. It also saw a growth of 161% coming from Gujarat and Maharashtra during the same period.

Also, the number of lives covered per policy went up to 3.1 in Q1 FY 2021-22 from 1.9 in Q1 FY2020-21.

    Mr. Dhirendra Mahyavanshi, Co-Founder, Turtlemint said,We recognised early on that insurance advisors are the most integral cog in the insurance ecosystem as most people are inclined to purchase insurance from their trusted advisor. Which is why we have always focused on empowering insurance advisors with the right technology tools that can help them educate their customers about insurance, create seamless customer interactions and on-boarding, and even upskill themselves.

    As a result, Turtlemint advisors have done almost 2.5x times their regular business by adopting the digital tools. Thus, achieving this significant milestone of adding 1,20,000 insurance advisors on our PoSP network is not only a validation of our efforts but indicative of the fact that we are already a few steps closer to achieving our overarching goal of universal insurance. We have remained tethered to our offline-online approach and this has helped us grow at a strong clip even during the challenging environment that stemmed from the COVID-19 pandemic ”.
