The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) gave a go-ahead to PNB Metlife to make its Initial Public Offering (IPO). Once it floats the IPO, the life insurance company will be the fourth insurer in the country to be listed. ICICI Prudential, SBI Life Insurance, and HDFC Life are the three other companies that were listed previously. PNB Metlife had filed its draft with SEBI in July last year and was given the green light by SEBI on November 2 to float its IPO. SEBI provided its observations the same day. The observations given by SEBI are crucial for any company such as this that plans to float an IPO. As per the draft paper provided by PNB, the stake dilution will be at 24.46% with a sale of under 496 million shares. While PNB will offer a little more than 80 million shares in the initial public offering, Metlife is expected to offload over 129 million stocks. PNB Metlife is a joint venture between PNB, Metlife, J&K Bank, M Pallonji & Co, and Elpro International. According to PNB’s draft paper, the plan to float an IPO will increase liquidity among shareholders and help in the branding of the insurance company.

A new ad campaign has been launched by PNB MetLife to promote greater awareness about the need of life insurance. This digital campaign drives home the point that a life insurance is a need for every consumer to safeguard the future of their family. The campaign has been titled as #MakeTime and the video is available on Youtube, while being simultaneously promoted via the various social media channels of PNB MetLife.
The ad film, whose main theme is ‘protection’, has been created by Anaiah Films. The ad takes a humorous route to depict a family’s preparations for a bleak financial future in absence of life insurance after the death of the family patriarch.
The ad has been conceptualised and carried out by the digital agency of PNB MetLife called ‘Social Kinnect’. It depicts a Mr. Sharma holding a prayer meeting in memory of his late musician father. Without giving away the punchline, the ad tries to urge people to “Make Time” to protect the future of their families by highlighting the importance of financial planning.
The ad especially markets the PNB MetLife’s ‘MetLife Mera Term Plan’. With this ad campaign, PNB MetLife wishes to change the prevalent Indian mindset that insurance needs to be an investment, not just a safety tool in case of unfortunate circumstances.
