Inclusive Insurance for the Mass Market

13th International Microinsurance Conference

7-9 November 2017, Lima, Peru

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

 

The 13th International Microinsurance Conference will take place in Peru from 7 – 9 November 2017. Approximately 400 participants and experts from around the world will discuss and identify ways of accelerating growth and economic viability in microinsurance. The conference will be hosted by APESEG in cooperation with the Munich Re Foundation and the Microinsurance Network. 

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. In Asia alone, the number of people insured through mobile phones exceeds 40 million. Furthermore, the G7 has decided to insure 400 million people against climate risks by 2020. Nonetheless, many people are still without cover or alternative risk management options. With the global middle class expected to grow to nearly five billion within two decades, we are looking at billions of people who are without a formal safety net from insurance and hence at risk of falling (back) into poverty.

 

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, international organisations, NGOs and development-aid agencies, as well as academics, policymakers and supervisory regulators, from around 50 countries will attend the conference. Attendees will exchange views on current growth trends and risks in emerging markets and discuss key factors for successful implementation and maximised business opportunities to bring supply and demand to the next level.

Structure and objectives of the conference

The conference will feature panel discussions on key topics addressing an interdisciplinary audience. Additional working group sessions will deal in depth with subtopics. Interactive sessions hosted by partner organisations of the International Microinsurance Conference will be a key part of the conference, facilitating dialogue in small groups on emerging issues. Keynote speeches will look at the latest international, national and local insights.

 

Conference language

English – Spanish interpreters will be available.
