You are correct in your observation that through the pandemic it is HDFC Life that has shown maximum strength and is almost inching towards its pre-COVID highs. On the other hand, SBI Life and ICICI Pru Life are still 15-20% away from their pre-COVID levels.

To an extent, HDFC Life FY20 performance was better than peers. HDFC Life new business margin stood at 25.9% for FY20 with SBI Life at 18.7% and ICICI Pru Life at 21.7%. Business contraction due to COVID for HDFC Life was just 5% whereas it was 19% for SBI Life and 40% for ICICI Pru Life.
