Webinar on Digitalisation in Inclusive Insurance: The Role of Supervisors in Meeting the Digital Challenge
In Asia, the use of mobile insurance as well as other technologies is rapidly increasing thereby improving access to and uptake of insurance for households and Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
Innovation and technology have and continue to contribute to enhancing financial inclusion, including providing more convenient and accessible financial services to consumers. Consumers are not the only ones benefiting from greater digitalisation, as insurance supervisors increasingly use innovative technologies to support their work. However, with the fast pace of digital advancements, insurance supervisors increasingly need to enhance their capacities to cope with the intricacies of digitalisation. Improper regulation may lead to financial exclusion, erosion of trust and even harm the industry’s reputation. To fully realise the opportunities and benefits that digital innovation can offer, supportive regulatory frameworks are needed that will contribute to the development of insurance markets while at the same time protecting consumers.
Against this background, Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) and the ASEAN Insurance Training and Research (AITRI) will be hosting a webinar in support of the continuous development of ASEAN insurance markets on 1 March 2023, 15:00 to 17:00 Kuala Lumpur time (08:00 CET). Registration will close on 27 February 2023.
Attendance is complementary for AITRI members and USD 50 for non-members.
