Digital technologies have experienced rapid growth in recent years. In particular, mobile insurance - which uses mobile phones for distribution, servicing or payments - has seen rapid growth, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This forum will explore the topics that face the industry and regulators alike:
- how new technologies and actors are changing the insurance landscape;
- stimulating innovation: how can supervisors create the best environment to facilitate innovation that encourages market development and enhances customer value;
- creating customer value: what value do these technologies bring to the consumer and how can the supervisor ensure consumer and data protection;
- new regulatory considerations: how can these new players and business models be supervised appropriately in ways that allow for cross-disciplinary cooperation between regulators.
The Consultative Forum will take place alongside the 45th AIO Conference and Annual General Assembly. Approximately 60 high-ranking representatives from African insurance supervisory authorities, the industry and the public sector will attend the event. The Forum aims to stimulate the dialogue that is critical to fostering knowledge and sond regulatory environmnets in the field of inclusive insurance.
