On 22 March, the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) present consultation calls to insurance supervisors and regulators that provide “a dynamic platform for dialogues, learning and capacity-building”. The ultimate aim of this platform is to aid in the creation of the conditions required for the development and growth of inclusive insurance markets.
The IAIS and A2ii requested that Cenfri lend its expertise to the 27th Consultation Call, the theme of which was “Innovation hubs and accelerators”. Jeremy Gray, Antonia Esser and Nichola Beyers presented Cenfri’s research on Regulating for innovation in English, Spanish and French, respectively. The webinar explored the preconditions, considerations and tools that are relevant, from a regulator’s perspective, when faced with innovation. It highlighted the sandbox approach as an example of an overarching approach to regulating for innovation, while emphasising that this approach is not a panacea or one-size-fits-all.
