Felipe Botero of the MicroInsurance Centre is quoted in the latest "Mixing it Up" blog by Sarah Murray

Mixing it up

“Everyone manages risk informally from the richest to the poorest and we do it in different ways but the poor are least able to do that,” he says.“Insurance is not a silver bullet, but it’s part of the portfolio of risk mitigation tools.” - Felipe Botero, Inclusive Insurance Specialist, MicroInsurance Centre

April 2014 - Thailand
Over the past two years, the MicroInsurance Centre has been working with the ADB to assist regulators, insurers, distribution channels and others in microinsurance to better understand the microinsurance market in Thailand. The MIC team’s research and analysis report from this project, Towards Inclusive Insurance in Thailand: An Analysis of the Market and Regulations, is now available. With this new knowledge and understanding of what is needed to enhance the microinsurance market, the MIC is currently finishing it’s involvement in the project with a series of events in Thailand, including a training of trainers, a training of key stakeholders (insurers, distributors, policymakers), and a strategy workshop for regulators, supervisors, and policymakers. These sessions combined will help to improve the environment for microinsurance in Thailand that will lead to improved profitability for insurers and distributors and better value for low income policyholders. 

Pictured below is Michael J. McCord at some of the above mentioned events taking place in Thailand at the end of April.
 
                                                                                                                                                         

 

March 2014 - Peru
Michael J. McCord is proud to have been a part of the faculty at this year's Boulder MFI courses in Arequipa, Peru!

Microinsurance: What Every MFI Manager Must Know: This course is offered in English and simultaneously translated in French in the Turin Session. Participants attending this course will leave with an understanding of the key issues in microinsurance. They will be able to think through the planning of a microinsurance product including how to determine what to offer, how it should be offered, and what resources and relationships will be required. All of the discussions will include examples from successful and not so successful microinsurance programs. This course is intended to provide the key information that a manager would need to plan the process of developing a microinsurance product, or improving one that is already being offered. A bias will be towards a partnership model. Those participating will be much better prepared to negotiate with insurers to make sure they are both getting a good deal for themselves and their clients, as well as providing the services that will make microinsurance successful.
