Entrevista en Twitter sobre los seguros basados en índices 

En los últimos años se han producido avances significativos en los seguros basados en índices, con buenos resultados derivados de índices más precisos e innovadores y modelos de negocio que utilizan canales de distribución mejor adaptados a las realidades de las jurisdicciones. Estos son los hallazgos de apertura del próximo informe de la A2ii sobre la encuesta en seguros basados en índices, realizada con supervisores y representantes de la industria en 2020.

En el informe, la A2ii proporciona una visión general de cómo ha evolucionado el interés de los supervisores en los seguros basados en índices durante los últimos cinco años, particularmente en los mercados emergentes y las economías en desarrollo, incluidos ejemplos de las jurisdicciones entrevistadas.

Se destacan tres enfoques regulatorios: i) legislación/regulación específica; ii) dictamen jurídico basado en el 'interés asegurable' en la fecha de contratación; y iii) adopción de piloto/sandbox regulatorio. El informe enumera ejemplos específicos de los enfoques regulatorios adoptados por los países y los explica con más detalle.

Además, el informe presenta: las principales preocupaciones regulatorias y de supervisión sobre el tema, las características y el alcance de los productos de seguros basados en índices, información sobre las innovaciones en los productos reportadas por la industria, y el papel fundamental que desempeñan las agencias técnicas y de desarrollo en los programas de seguros basados en índices.

Únase a nosotros en un chat en vivo en Twitter con la autora del informe, Regina Simoes, la Coordinadora Regional de la A2ii para América Latina.

Diálogo público 

 

El 25 de marzo, la A2ii y la IAIS realizarán un diálogo público sobre los seguros basados en índices (a las 10:00 CET en inglés y francés y a las 16:00 CET en inglés y español).

La A2ii compartirá los resultados de la encuesta realizada en 2020 con los supervisores y otras partes interesadas sobre el estado actual de los seguros basados en índices, cuyos resultados también se publicarán en el documento correspondiente. Además, los participantes escucharán a expertos del sector y a autoridades supervisoras que compartirán sus experiencias. 

El uso de seguros basados en índices como alternativa a los seguros tradicionales basados en indemnización ha aumentado en los últimos años, especialmente como un mecanismo para asegurar los riesgos climáticos extremos.  Los seguros basados en índices, conocidos también como seguros paramétricos, han evolucionado. Hoy en día, llegan a una amplia gama de clientes a nivel micro, meso y macro, que van desde los segmentos más vulnerables de la población hasta los sectores más sofisticados y complejos.

Twitter Interview on Index Insurance 

There have been significant developments in index-based insurance in recent years and good results stemming from innovative and more accurate indexes and business models using distribution channels that are better adapted to jurisdictions' realities. These are the upcoming A2ii report's opening findings from the index insurance survey conducted with supervisors and representatives of the industry in 2020.  

In the report, the A2ii provides an overview of how supervisory interest in index-based insurance evolved over the past five years, particularly in emerging markets and developing economies, including examples from the surveyed jurisdictions. 

Three regulatory approaches stand out: i) specific legislation/regulation; ii) legal opinions based on the 'insurable interest' at the date of contracting; and iii) pilot/regulatory sandbox. The report lists country-specific examples of the main regulatory approaches and explains them further. 
In addition to this, the report presents the main regulatory and supervisory concerns, characteristics and scope of index insurance products, information on product innovations from the industry side, and the critical role of technical and development agencies in index insurance development.

Join us in a live Twitter chat with the author of the report, Regina Simoes, the A2ii Regional Coordinator for Latin America.

Public dialogue

On 25 March, the A2ii and IAIS will hold a public dialogue on Index-based Insurance, at 10:00 CET in English and French and 16:00 CET in English and Spanish. Click here to register.

The A2ii will share results from the 2020 survey that was conducted with supervisors and other stakeholders on the current state of index insurance, the outcomes of which will also be published in a corresponding paper. In addition, participants will hear from industry experts as well as supervisory authorities who will share their experiences. 

The use of index insurance as an alternative to traditional indemnity-based insurance has increased over the last years, particularly as a mechanism for insuring extreme weather risks. Index insurance – also known as parametric insurance – has been evolving. Today, it reaches a wide range of customers, at the micro, meso and macro levels, ranging from the most vulnerable segments of the population to the most sophisticated and complex sectors.
