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.
