Index insurance, also known as parametric insurance, has gained significant popularity in recent years due to its potential benefits. The use of satellite technology and predetermined trigger indexes allows for a swift response and efficient processing of pay-outs.
The shift to risk-based capital (RBC) approaches has many benefits for stakeholders in the insurance sector including consumers, industry players and supervisors. Not only does it support the development of the insurance market by providing flexibility and encouraging innovation, but it is also more efficient, allocating capital more appropriately to risk and reducing the amount of dormant capital. Additionally, RBC gives supervisors improved measures of financial soundness, insights into insurers’ risk management practises and corporate governance structures, comparability and proportionate ladders of intervention, leading to better supervision.
