On 6 November 2018 the Access to Insurance Initiative released its 2017/2018 Annual Report at the meetings of the IAIS Implementation and Assessment Committee which took place alongside the IAIS annual conference in Luxembourg and the IAIS Financial Inclusion Working Group which took place alongside the 14th International Microinsurance Conference. The report covers the period from October 2017 to September 2018 and showcases the A2ii’s activities in supporting supervisors to make their markets more inclusive.
The topical focus for 2017/2018 has been on digital financial inclusion. Through its Consultative Forums, Consultation Calls and publications the A2ii generated learnings on topics such as big data and consumer protection, formalisation, supportive approaches to market development and innovation. In its Annual Report, the A2ii shares its observations on the key drivers of change and emerging trends in the inclusive insurance markets.
