Cigna raises stake in India JV

Cigna has filed an application with the regulator to increase its stake in its Indian joint venture Cigna TTK to 49% from 26%.

Following the transaction, TTK will own 51% stake in the JV. TTK is in the process of selling its stake in the business partially or completely.

In a statement, Cigna TTK Health Insurance chief executive officer Sandeep Patel said the increase of Cigna’s stake in Cigna TTK is a significant step demonstrating Cigna’s commitment to the Indian health insurance market.
