  • Product variation: Star Health Insurance has a vast portfolio of products and services. The insurer offers health insurance policies, travel insurance covers and accident insurance policies. The variation in offering allows this insurer to capture a larger market share and cater to a diverse range of target customers.
  • Business growth: In the last couple of years, individuals are keener on getting insured. With a solid reputation in the insurance market segment and quality offerings, Star Health Insurance is in a better position to divert the current insurance trends in its favour.


  • Common offerings: Star Health Insurance offers coverage plans and policies that are not exactly unique. The common features, similar nature of offerings and stagnant innovation could weaken the company’s long-term prospects.


  • Awareness about financial planning: As more individuals become financially aware and want to account for financial liabilities independently, the demand for insurance policies is rising. By tapping into this demand and the growing awareness about the importance of health insurance, this company can expand its market presence.
  • Growth prospects: Strong financials and a greater market share can prove useful in the long-term if the company decides to expand its service offerings and area of expertise further.


  • Competition: Almost all insurance companies offer similar products and services. This means substitute products and offerings are readily available to potential customers. The rising competition in the market increases the fear of losing potential and existing customers to companies that cater to niche areas.

● Applying at the cut-off price
● Using a Demat Account linked with your PAN
● Confirm that your bank account and UPI ID are linked through a single PAN, and failing to keep that can lead to rejection.
For instance, person X has applied for the Go Airlines IPO via his Demat Account but person Y’s UPI ID. In such cases, the application can get rejected due to –
● Person Y’s UPI ID is not linked with X’s PAN
● Person X’s Demat account is not linked with Y’s bank account
