Hero Enterprise’s insurance business, which is currently carried out by Hero Corporate Service, will now operate under Hero Insurance Broking India brand name.

The company said that the broking licence will bring ‘new synergies’ to its insurance distribution ecosystem and offer a ‘wider range’ of products.

At present Hero provides its general insurance services to the education, health, manufacturing, hospitality, travel and aviation sectors, as well as to the entire automobile segment.

Hero Corporate Service said executive director Shefali Munjal said the broking licence would also help Hero offer certain super-specialised insurance products that are making their way into India.
