Aditya Birla Capital Limited (ABCL) and Aditya Birla Health Insurance (ABHI) approved a proposal for a primary capital infusion of approximately Rs. 665 crore in ABHI, from a wholly owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA).
 
ABHI is a 51:49 joint venture between ABCL and Momentum Metropolitan Strategic Investments (Pty) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of South African based Momentum Metropolitan Holdings Limited (MMH).
 
The transaction values ABHI at approximately Rs. 6,650 crores. Completion is subject to receipt of statutory and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). Upon the completion of the transaction, ADIA will own a 9.99% stake, ABCL will hold a 45.91% stake and MMH a 44.10% stake, respectively, in ABHI.
 
ABHI plans to use this capital to drive its growth in the health insurance market in India. With its differentiated Health-First model, ABHI is the fastest growing health insurance company in the health insurance space, in India.
 
Vishakha Mulye, chief executive officer, ABCL, said: “In recent times health has become a key concern for all. With its differentiated Health - First model, ABHI is well positioned to address this concern, while also protecting health through insurance. An investment from ADIA underscores the strong and unique business model of ABHI and the franchise we have created.”
 
Asokan Naidu, CEO,  Momentum Metropolitan Affiliates said, “We are excited about the interest of an investor of the calibre of ADIA as it is a confirmation of the success of Aditya Birla Health Insurance, as well as a demonstration of the future growth potential of the company. We are grateful that MMH invested in India with a quality partner like Aditya Birla Capital Limited, and we are looking forward to building an equally valuable relationship with our new partner in this venture, ADIA.”
 
Hamad Shahwan Al Dhaheri, executive director of the Private Equities Department at ADIA, said, “We see significant potential in India’s health insurance sector as penetration levels increase, driven by higher awareness and broader economic growth. Aditya Birla Health Insurance has a strong management team, a wellness-first product offering and a differentiated distribution model. We look forward to partnering with Aditya Birla Capital and Momentum Metropolitan Holdings to support the next phase of ABHI’s growth.”
 
Mayank Bathwal, CEO, Aditya Birla Health Insurance said, “This partnership with ADIA strengthens our resolve to further expand the company’s ‘Health-First’ proposition, as we empower our customers to lead a healthy life.
