Event will gather over 400 experts and worldwide delegates to push issues forward.
Approximately 135 million people in developing countries already use microinsurance as a means of managing risk for the poorer social classes, according to a Lloyd’s of London report, and this number is only going to grow. In Brazil, the situation is no different and this line of insurance will play a key role in reducing the vulnerability of the low‐income households. This issue will be one of many debated topics during the 7th International Microinsurance Conference, which will place from November 8th to 10th in the Sheraton Leblon Hotel, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The event will bring together more than 400 delegates and experts from over 50 countries to discuss challenges and opportunities in microinsurance, while also focusing on lessons learnt and emerging issues. Organised by Munich Re Foundation and Microinsurance Network, the 7th International Microinsurance Conference will be supported by the Brazilian Confederation of Insurers (CNseg), the Superintendence of Private Insurance (Susep), GIZ/BMZ and Georgia State University.
