Who We Are

The MicroInsurance Centre, LLC is a consulting firm dedicated to generating access to valuable microinsurance products to 3 billion low-income people across the globe. This is accomplished by working with regulated insurers and appropriate delivery channels who can efficiently provide simple, market-responsive microinsurance products. Our clients include commercial insurers, foundations, bi- and multi-lateral development agencies, regulators, NGOs and others. These organizations work with us to ensure the best potential for success with their microinsurance activities. Our work with clients includes various aspects of microinsurance, from product development and training to research and advocacyThroughout all consulting work, the MicroInsurance Centre is guided by four core philosophies: “SUAVE”, the “Magical Balance,” local capacity building, and evolution of products; all of these have been built from years of experience with dozens of microinsurance programs across the globe (to learn more about our Guiding Philosophies, see our Corporate Capability Statement). The ultimate goal is to create SUAVE microinsurance products that have value for clients and represent a business case (e.g. are sustainable) for the insurer and distribution channel.

Our team has implemented microinsurance activities in over 70 countries during the last twenty years. To complete the wide variety of projects carried out by the MicroInsurance Centre, we also work with a number of exceptional consultants.

Quote of the Day

"I was stranded in New York City during the 2003 blackout, and for the next two years, I carried a small flashlight in my backpack. The flashlight did not cost much, but its potential to help in another blackout was obvious and to use it I needed only to press a button. For microinsurance to be accepted on a massive scale, it cannot cost much, its value must be obvious, and it must be simple to use." -- Brandon Matthews | Head of Microinsurance, Zurich Financial Services
