Inclusive insurance for Emerging Markets

Tuesday, November 6, 2018 to Thursday, November 8, 2018

The Conference will bring together over 400 participants and experts from around the world who will discuss and identify ways of accelerating growth and economic viability in microinsurance. Around 80 speakers will share their knowledge in around 30 sessions.

The microinsurance sector has experienced persistent growth in client outreach and premium volumes over the past ten years. Today, nearly 300 million low-income citizens in developing countries are covered by an insurance policy. New technologies are boosting market coverage. Nonetheless, many people are still without cover or alternative risk management options.

The need to respond to this situation by understanding the role of insurance for sustainable development, improving supply, heightening the awareness of insurance, creating the right regulatory framework and better understanding the particular needs of the low income population is the main focus of the International Microinsurance Conference.

Representatives from:

  • Insurance and reinsurance companies;
  • Distribution channels;
  • Investment funds;
  • Iinternational organisations;
  • NGOs and development-aid agencies, as well as;
  • Academics, policymakers and supervisory regulators, from around 50 countries will attend the conference.
