Here you will find the summary and presentations of the consultation call of 21 September 2017.
On the topic: there has been a rapid growth in mobile insurance, especially over the past 5 years. Yet for a domain where so much is happening and where more players (e.g. Mobile Network Operators, technical service providers) and regulators are getting involved, there is still little information about potential risks and corresponding solutions. In particular, the topic of data protection – the regulatory measures taken to protect personal data – has not received much attention.
On the topic: mobile insurance has a huge potential in advancing inclusive insurance markets and has experienced rapid growth in recent years. However, it also brings with it new risks and challenges for insurance supervisors seeking to ensure policyholders are protected from abuse and fraud. Participants on the call will learn more about these risks and discuss potential supervisory responses. Additionally, different country examples will be shared with participants on the call.
