Does microinsurance matter for development? Can insurance strengthen resilience and improve value chains? Is the latest wave of innovation in microinsurance meeting consumer needs? Can tech, data and analytics shape the future of microinsurance? Is there life after mobile? Can index insurance be scaled up?
These are only a few of the questions that will be discussed at the 13th International Microinsurance Conference that will take place in Lima, Peru from 7 to 9 November. The Conference is hosted by the APESEG, Munich Re Foundation and the Microinsurance Network. It brings together around 400 insurers, intermediaries and regulators from over 50 countries to discuss various challenges and opportunities for the provision of insurance in developing markets.
