Proportionate Regulatory Frameworks in Inclusive Insurance: Lessons from a Decade of Microinsurance Regulation

M. Wiedmaier-Pfister, H.L Chiew, H. Grant | Access to Insurance Initiative

It is slightly over a decade since the first microinsurance regulations were introduced in India in 2005. With at least 18 insurance supervisors having rolled out microinsurance regulations today, the landscape is now vastly different. In this milestone publication 'Proportionate Regulatory Frameworks in Inclusive Insurance: Lessons from a Decade of Microinsurance Regulation', The authors look back at what supervisory approaches have been undertaken since then, and draw lessons from the past. They also look forward and examine ongoing and emerging market trends and challenges that insurance supervisors find themselves confronted with, particularly with regard to formalisation, mass distribution and digital technology. Finally, they highlight the areas where supervisory capacity-building will be highly important as inclusive insurance markets worldwide continue to innovate and grow.
