Uganda proposes new microinsurance regulation with reduced minimum capital requirement for microinsurers

In order to stimulate the development of the inclusive insurance market in Uganda the Insurance Regulatory Authority of Uganda (IRA) has developed a microinsurance regulation which will create a more proportionate regulatory environment for microinsurers. The draft regulations, which are to be submitted to the Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development for his approval, include a reduced minimum capital requirement of UGX 100million (USD 30,000) for insurance companies selling microinsurance products instead of the usual requirement of UGX 3 billion (USD 900,000) for life insurance companies and UGX 4 billion (USD 12 million) for non-life insurers.
