Regulatory Impact Assessments: Microinsurance Regulations in Peru and the Philippines

The Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) through its Impact Insurance Facility (IIF) have commissioned this study to assess the impact of microinsurance regulatory frameworks on developingn inclusive insurance markets by way of a Regulatory Impact Assessment.

The Philippines and Peru have been selected as case studies for two reasons. The first is, being early pioneers of measures to develop microinsurance via supportive policy and regulatory approaches, the two countries have among the longest experience with microinsurance regulations and thus offer a wealth of observed experience and rich lessons. Second, both countries took distinctively unique approaches based on their respective policy objectives and local market contexts, and the strategies adopted, thus enabling insights to be drawn from meaningful comparison of the measures each supervisor took.
