After a record $11 billion in fund-raising from IPOs last year, companies have lined up share sales in what bankers and market participants have predicted to be another busy year for capital markets, even though the stock indexes have retreated from record highs hit in late January.

The IPO follows the listing of ICICI Bank's life and non-life insurance arms in the past two years, and will help the bank shore up its capital base at a time when lenders have seen provisions for soured loans rising. The firm will be the third entity from the ICICI Group to go public.

ICICI Lombard IPO opened on September 15, 2017. The firm was the first general insurer to go public. ICICI Lombard General Insurance is a joint venture between ICICI Bank and Canadian NRI Prem Watsa-promoted Fairfax Financial Holdings.

Its life insurance arm ICICI Prudential had raised Rs 6,000 crore through an IPO in 2016, the first public offering by an Indian life insurer.
