Looking for post-Covid themes to invest in? List life insurance stocks on top


NEW DELHI: If past experiences of epidemics in China and Hong Kong are any cue, select stocks could be a key beneficiary of the Covid-19 mauling. 

Several brokerages have already gone overweight on them, as they expect this pandemic to bring about a change in Indian mindset and nudge people to pay more attention to protection against unforeseen threats to life. 

Should that happen, one set of direct beneficiaries would be life insurers. Stocks from this sector are down up to 30 per cent year to date.
