The Man Behind the Wheel

Anup Rau

Anup Rau is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Future Generali India Insurance Company Limited.

Before joining Future Generali, Anup had gathered 20+ years of experience working with India’s leading insurance companies. He started his career journey in 1995 as a Sales Engineer with Gilson Medical Electronics, Delhi. There he was responsible for the sales and service of pipettes. Fast forward a few years; he joined DCW Home products as a sales officer responsible for selling salt and flour to shopkeepers in Hooghly, West Bengal.

After that, he joined ICICI Prudential Life Insurance just because he loved the architectural design of the ICICI Prudential building at BKC, Mumbai. In his ten years with ICICI, he has worked in a variety of roles. He started out as a front-line sales executive and rose to Head – Sales and Distribution. ICICI Prudential marked the beginning of his career in the insurance market.

He has also worked with HDFC Life Insurance as a Chief Distribution Officer and Reliance Nippon Life Insurance, and Edelweiss General Insurance as a CEO.

Reliance Nippon Life is where he made an imprint. During his 4 year tenure there, he increased the company’s revenue in two digits, while the rest of the industry declined in double digits in the same period. He took Reliance General from 5th place to 1st place in the largest non-bank insurance provider rankings.

In the year 2019, Anup Rau took over as an MD and CEO of Future Generali. Under his leadership, the company has delivered higher-than-average industry growth and improved profitability. He transformed FG into an industry player of serious scale in the retail health space and showed and made the company into a customer-centric brand. Under his watch, the FG has been certified as a “Great Place to Work” 2 years in a row.

Anup has done his MBA in Marketing from the University of Bombay and holds an Honours Degree in Economics from the University of Delhi.

Anup, like most Indians, has a passion for cricket. Besides being a Pink Floyd fan, he is an avid reader and has over 4000 books in his private library. He is also an owner of over 400 rare and unusual menu cards.

Being a philanthropist at heart, he supports an orphanage on the outskirts of Mumbai. He is also involved in encouraging adoption of the Indian Pariah and other indigenous dogs and has a Rajapalayam as a pet.
