Philippines Country Diagnostic: "Making insurance markets work for the poor. Microinsurance policy, regulation and supervision: Philippines Case Study"

This document is one case study of a five-country (Colombia, India, Philippines, South Africa and Uganda) case study project on the role of regulation in the development of microinsurance markets.

The objectives of this project were to map the experience in a sample of five developing countries (Colombia, India, the Philippines, South Africa and Uganda) where microinsurance products have evolved and to consider the influence that policy, regulation and supervision on the development of these markets. From this evidence base, cross-country lessons were extracted that seek to offer guidance to policymakers, regulators and supervisors who are looking to support the development of microinsurance in their jurisdiction.
