There is plenty of room for improving business practices towards consumers and innovating to serve the retail and microinsurance segments. The very low penetration of insurance coupled with a large and growing population and economy, represent an attractively large potential market. The top priority for creating an inclusive insurance sector in Nigeria is improving public confidence, trust and awareness.
