DescriptionMicroinsurance has gone through two significant phases and is now entering a third, driven by digital platforms, embedded insurance, and cross-benefits from insurers moving towards simple, small-ticket products. The speakers will discuss these three waves of microinsurance and the evolution of distribution channels through these phases of development. They will focus on the current wave that is being driven by technology and share some successful case studies and opportunities for mainstream insurers to explore the microinsurance opportunity.
Here is a recent article authored by one of the speakers that provides more insight into the topic – https://insuranceasianews.com/the-third-wave-of-microinsurance/
