The sixth consultation call in a series of A2ii-IAIS webinars on the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and implications for insurance supervisors will take place on 30, June 2020. This webinar will explore the topic of cross-border remittances more generally in light of the Covid-19 crisis and highlight the potential of distributing insurance products through remittance service providers to improve the resilience of households. Cenfri will present on their recently published report on the potential of remittance-linked insurance products in Sub-Saharan Africa highlighting why these types of products are important, what forms they could take and the regulatory challenges that still need to be overcome to enable the introduction of such products.
Call background: Jurisdictions around the world are taking measures to protect their populations against the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The global pandemic has had a significant impact on an individual country’s economy and also far-reaching consequences for the financial sector in general including the insurance sector. To help supervisors adapt to this fast-changing environment, learn from their peers and get input from experts, the A2ii together with the IAIS launched a new webinar series on the topic. The webinars have been looking at both the financial stability and the consumer protection implications of covid-19 on the insurance sector. A special focus has been given to the situation in emerging and developing economies including the impact on vulnerable populations, recognising the higher personal economic risk they face due to a lack of resources and the fact they are disproportionately more likely to be uninsured or underinsured.
This webinar will be held on the Webex platform and in three different languages - English, French and Spanish at the following times:
9am (CEST) English || 11am (CEST) French || 3pm (CEST) English || 5pm (CEST) Spanish
Please note that this series is restricted to supervisors only.
