Microinsurance in Africa, Asia and Oceania, and Latin America and the Caribbean
As the microinsurance industry continues to grow and develop throughout the world, it is essential that stakeholders have current and reliable data. The microinsurance landscape studies provide valuable results that identify key trends and benchmarks at both a regional and country level. Additionally, they explore microinsurance in the context of various regulatory frameworks, examine the delivery channels that bring these products to the low-income market, and capture first-hand market perceptions from study participants who are involved in the industry on a daily basis.
All microinsurance landscape publications and their available translations may be found below. Preliminary results for the most recent Landscape of Microinsurance in Latin America and the Caribbean 2014 study are available below in the Briefing Note. This current study and all future landscapes will be published as a part of the Microinsurance Network's World Map of Microinsurance (WMM) programme.
