Advancing Inclusive Insurance in Africa: Innovation in Industry, Policy and Development
The expanding microinsurance market in Africa, and integration of micro products into existing insurance strategies, is both a commercial and developmental opportunity. Technological innovations and new products and distribution channels are helping to overcome barriers of low profit margins, low levels of consumer knowledge and uncertainty surrounding regulation. Access to microinsurance gives households and small businesses peace of mind to invest for the future, and lessens the impacts of losses on the most vulnerable.
This conference will evaluate innovation and progress in microinsurance initiatives across Africa, and discuss barriers to inclusion and challenges to further developments. The event will have a pan-African focus, comparing and assessing efforts to support the uninsured in countries across sub-Saharan Africa. The panels will feature expert speakers who play key roles in policy-making, business decision-making and technological development relating to microinsurance and wider aspects of financial inclusion in Africa.
The event is supported by AIG.
