Regulatory approaches to inclusive insurance market development | Cross-country synthesis note 2

This paper considers the various regulatory approaches implemented by insurance regulators and supervisors globally in order to achieve the objective of inclusive insurance market development. The primary question that this paper seeks to address is: what is the optimal regulatory approach to be followed by a particular country to promote increased access to insurance in a particular product market or across multiple product markets?

Evolving Microinsurance Business Models and their Regulatory Implications

One of the aims of the cross-country synthesis exercise is to gain a better understanding of the dynamics, development and evolution of microinsurance markets. Identifying discrete microinsurance business models allows the roles and incentives of the players involved in the provision of microinsurance to be disaggregated so as to better understand the way that the microinsurance market evolves across countries and to gauge the risks involved.
