Burman, who is a member of the promoter family of the Dabur Group, holds a majority stake in Aviva Life Insurance, while the UK-based Aviva Group has 26 per cent stake in it. He added that the company is scouting for a bank partner for tie-up. They are yet to decide on whether there will be a stake sale or fresh equity.

He said Aviva Life has participated in the RFP (Request for Proposal) floated by PSU lender Syndicate Bank and is also in talks with other lenders. Aviva Life Insurance is a joint venture between the Dabur Group and UK-based Aviva Group with a paid up capital of over Rs. 2,000 crores.

At present, Aviva Life Insurance sells products through partner banks - Punjab & Sind Bank, IndusInd Bank and RBS. A bank partner would help Aviva Life, which started operations in May 2002, to expand its reach using the bank's branch network. For the full fiscal 2010-11, Aviva Life reported a net profit of Rs 29 crore and total premium collection of Rs 2,345 crore.

Now-a-days, insurance companies are showing interest to sell stakes to banks to have access to their wide branch network.
