NEW YORK, June 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roadzen Inc. (RDZN) ("Roadzen" or the "Company?), a global leader in AI at the convergence of insurance and mobility, today announced a significant partnership with a leading commercial auto-focused agency network in India. This alliance onboards over 1,200 agents in 18 states across India to the Roadzen (RDZN) platform and aims to deliver coverage for more than 300,000 vehicles annually. This collaboration is projected to generate approximately $65 million in gross written premiums annually, adding upwards of $10 million to Roadzen?s annual revenue run rate over the next year.

According to the World Bank, India?s economy is the fastest-growing large economy in the world, with the Reserve Bank of India projecting GDP growth rate of around 8% in 2024. Rising consumer demand and income levels have fueled it to become the third-largest car market globally, with over 4.2 million new vehicles sold last year. Additionally, GlobalData predicts the auto insurance market in India is set to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2024 to 2028, one of the fastest rates in the world.

Roadzen?s platform will offer these channel partners an enhanced selling experience, featuring real-time quote options from multiple carriers and risk-matching algorithms for commercial auto policies. It will also streamline the claims process from the first notice of loss to final dispensation within minutes, a service that most insurance intermediaries cannot offer their customers today. Commercial fleet owners will also benefit from adding Roadzen?s advanced technology to address major pain areas, such as accident prevention using software or video telematics and proactive roadside assistance in times of need.

Rohan Malhotra, Founder and CEO of Roadzen (RDZN), stated, ?This partnership continues our mission to advance the insurance ecosystem, including addressing distribution needs, which is a large part of the auto insurance economy. While India's strong economy supports such agency networks, the need for advanced technology, capital, and access to larger clients is crucial for their sustainable growth. Roadzen (RDZN) is ideally equipped to provide these essential resources, offering a next-generation platform that enhances the entire auto insurance ecosystem?from policyholders and insurance carriers to auto manufacturers and fleet owners. This is the first step forward in a partnership that we will look to grow from strength to strength.?

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
