    Worldwide | Consultation Calls, SMEs

    Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) make up the vast majority of enterprises and make a significant contribution to employment and economic growth. However, especially for micro and small businesses, insurance products suited to their specific demands often do not exist. For both social and economic reasons, it is in policymakers’ and supervisors’ interest to scale up the provision of appropriate and responsible insurance products amongst MSMEs. This means that it is important to better explore these segments to find out and understand their characteristic requirements, which blend personal insurance and business insurance products.

    Worldwide | Consultation Calls, Digital Technology

    On this call we explored emerging technologies and how they affect the market and consumers. We also took a look at some regulatory approaches which have been taken, such as setting restrictions, or facilitating some technologies. We saw what has already been done to help supervisors understand technological innovations and what the status quo is in terms of principles and guidelines for supervision. The material from this call should help regulators and supervisors to strike a balance between facilitating innovation and unlocking its potential benefits to the insurance market, increasing the inclusiveness of the insurance sector, and maintaining the conditions for a fair, safe and stable insurance sector for the benefit and protection of policyholders.
