Bridging the Gender Gap: The role of the Insurance Supervisor – A2ii-IAIS Consultation Call, May 2019

Compared to men, women form a significant part of the underinsured segment of the population especially in developing countries, lack of data, socio-cultural barriers and low levels of financial literacy are often cited as some of the main factors behind this. In addition, given the role that women play in managing household risks, it is of wider benefit to households if insurance products are designed that fit their needs.
