Upstox now provides term life insurance on its website and plans to launch health, auto, and vacation insurance in the near future. One of the first insurers to collaborate with Upstox and provide its term insurance plans on the site is HDFC Life.

“We are thrilled to expand our offerings on Upstox and foray into the insurance distribution segment,” Upstox co-founder Kavitha Subramanian stated. We acknowledge that navigating the insurance market can be difficult. With the addition of insurance to our platform, we will not waver in our mission to assist our consumers in prudently managing their resources for a stable financial future. And we’re thrilled to have HDFC Life as our first insurance partner in order to do this.

Deputy Managing Director of HDFC Life Suresh Badami stated, “We are happy to announce our partnership with Upstox.” This is a step closer to achieving India’s 2047 objective of “Insurance for All.” Our goal is to increase the value of this cooperation by using our distribution and digital skills to provide our insurance products to their whole clientele.

Stocks, IPOs, F&O, commodities, currencies, fixed deposits, P2P lending, government bonds, NCDs, gold, and insurance are just a few of the many financial products that Upstox provides.

The Mumbai-based company broke the Rs 1,000 crore mark in FY23 and saw a 44% increase in broking income year over year. The company, financed by Tiger Global, added that it became profitable in FY23.

Upstox has competition from companies such as Groww, Zerodha, and PhonePe’s Share Market. It’s important to note that PhonePe’s platform also provides insurance products.
