With sporting extravaganzas like the Women’s FIH Hockey Nations Cup and the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, audience interest is on the rise in women’s sports. A recent report by YouGov stated that among urban Indian sports fans, almost an equal proportion of men and women sports fans prefer women’s sports over men’s (51% females, 49% males). Max Life has a long association with cricket and cricketers that have championed its brand philosophy of “You are the Difference” – driving importance of long-term financial protection among the urban milieu.
The findings of Max Life’s recent survey, India Protection Quotient (IPQ) 5.0 conducted in association with KANTAR, echoed the sentiment revealing that while women have made giant strides in financial protection and security, there is still a need to address the gap in financial awareness. As per this year’s IPQ 5.0 findings, the Knowledge Index of women stood at 51, while men continued to lead with 60 points – highlighting the need for targeted efforts to bridge the disparity and foster inclusivity.
Commenting on the association, Rahul Talwar, Chief Marketing Officer, Max Life Insurance said, “We are thrilled to be associated with Mumbai Indians as their official life insurance partner for the upcoming season of IPL and also hugely proud to support the historic moment as India inaugurates the game-changing Women’s Premier League this year. As a brand, we are committed to strengthening diversity, equity and inclusion in society, and this partnership is an ode to that vision. Max Life believes in the message ‘Khelo Front Foot Pe’ and as women cricketers revolutionize sports in this country, we hope our message to the audience finds greater resonance and highlights the importance of financial protection.”
Commenting on the partnership, Mumbai Indians spokesperson, said, “We are happy to associate with Max Life Insurance, one of the leading insurance providers, as our official life insurance partner. The family of MI teams gives us the opportunity to look at a wider pool of partners that we can engage with, and we are glad that we can offer Max Life Insurance a platform that they can leverage, to reach out to, across demographics.”
Recently Max Life announced the captain of men’s Indian Cricket team, Rohit Sharma and his wife Ritika Sajdeh as its brand ambassadors. The power couple are firm believers in being equal participants in making decisions to protect the financial future of their family and through their collaboration, aim to emphasize the importance of early financial planning – especially among the young consumers.
