Taking NIB's pulse

The health insurance fund is performing well, but political uncertainty makes investing in the stock problematic in the medium term.

Australia’s $5 billion health insurance fund Medibank Private may or may not list in the next few years, but in the meantime the only listed view of the sector comes through Newcastle-based NIB.

On Monday, NIB reported 12% growth in revenue in the first half primarily due to a 6% increase in policyholder numbers. NIB is typically growing policyholder numbers at twice the industry average.
