Change in valuation methodology of equity shares as prescribed by Insurance and Regulatory Development Authority (IRDA)
Insurance and Regulatory Development Authority (IRDA) through its circular number IRDA/F&I/INV/CIR/213/10/2013 dated October 30, 2013 has mandated Insurers to select either NSE or BSE as the Primary and Secondary exchange for valuation of its equity shares. The Company has, owing to the volume of trades, selected NSE as the Primary Exchange and BSE as the Secondary Exchange with effect from November 28, 2013. Accordingly, the equity shares held by the Company shall be valued at the closing price of the Primary exchange i.e. NSE. In case a security is not listed or traded on NSE, the Company shall use the closing price of the secondary exchange i.e. BSE.
Modification in NAV computationAs stipulated by IRDA effective August 18, 2011
As stipulated by the Insurance and Regulatory Development Authority (IRDA), in its circular dated July 29, 2011 the formula for computation of the Net Asset Value Per Unit (NAV) for Linked funds stands modified.
Old formula as prescribed by IRDA and as contained in the policy document: Market value of the investment plus / (minus) expenses incurred in the purchase / (sale) of assets plus current assets and accrued interest (net of fund management charges) less current liabilities and provisions, divided by, number of units outstanding under the fund at valuation date (before creation / redemption of units).
Modified formula as stipulated by IRDA effective August 18, 2011: Market value of the investment held by the fund plus value of current assets less value of current liabilities and provisions, if any and divided by the number of units existing on the valuation date (before creation/redemption of units)
The policy document shall accordingly stand modified.
