Is There a Business Case for Microinsurance? A review of recent literature

This Landscape Paper reviews the large body of writings and conference presentations on microinsurance to try and determine whether the business case for this new industry has been made. Our conclusion, in short, is that it hasn’t. Beyond compulsory credit life schemes, we have struggled to find a single well-documented case of a microinsurance enterprise that is profitable at scale.

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
