Welcome to our newsletter, where we update insurance regulators and supervisors on the work of the Initiative and inform you about events and publications.

A2ii Stakeholder survey 2016 – Thanks for your participation!

In February our third annual stakeholder survey closed. We were delighted to see that participation almost doubled compared to last year’s survey with 82 responses, among those 47 supervisors - many thanks for taking the time to provide us with this valuable feedback!

We are very pleased to see a high level of satisfaction by supervisors with the work of A2ii: 68% feel that A2ii provides the support needed in order to enhance inclusive insurance. We also found that

  • a great majority think A2ii is achieving its mission
  • A2ii’s main focus is perceived as being a global advocate on financial inclusion
  • there is a high level of satisfaction with our products for those aware of our website, publications, toolkits, events and training; and
  • almost 90% (strongly) agree that as a result of the support provided by the A2ii the topic of inclusive insurance markets has become more prominent

Besides these very encouraging views, we also received a number of valuable suggestions: supervisors expressed their demand for more capacity building, more peer-dialogues and a closer in country cooperation between the secretariat and supervisors. These and other suggestions received will be carefully reflected on by the secretariat and used to inform our activities in 2016 and beyond.

Recent events

A2ii Governing Council meeting
|25-26 February| Basel

On February 26 the IAIS hosted the A2ii Governing Council annual meeting in Basel. Representatives of the A2ii Charter Sponsors, a majority of which are IAIS representatives, met to approve A2ii’’s workplan and budget and provide strategic guidance to the secretariat on a number of important upcoming issues.

A2ii’s focus on regional implementation was confirmed. By further intensifying representation on the ground, A2ii will reinforce its links to the regions and facilitate regional implementation work: this will be supported by a regional coordinator, situated in FSB South Africa as well as a regional coordinator continuing to represent the A2ii in Latin America  following the conclusion of the IADB/A2ii project in May 2016.

As an important step towards A2ii’s future, it was decided that preparations should start at the end of this year for a next phase of A2ii starting in January 2018.

IAIS Implementation Committee and Financial Inclusion Working Group meeting
|22 February| Basel

During the meetings the A2ii updated supervisors on its workplan for 2016, highlighting changes that had been made in response to feedback on the draft previously shared with them in November.

Based on an IAIS secretariat proposal a new approach to the organisation of Financial Inclusion Working Group meetings was endorsed. Going forward there will be increased use of WebEx facilities. In addition, physical working group meetings will be scheduled   back-to-back with other relevant financial inclusion events as opposed to alongside IAIS committee meetings as has previously been the case.
