Consultative Forums

The Network has a long-standing relationship with the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii), and through this relationship provides a neutral platform for dialogue amongst regulators and the industry with the objective of fostering the development of microinsurance-enabling regulatory environments across different nations. 
Since 2013 the Microinsurance Network, IAIS and A2ii have organised eight joint Consultative Forums on matters of regulation and microinsurance, bringing together national regulators, supervisors and industry representatives on topics such as distribution, client value, consumer education and insurance service sustainability, consumer protection and inclusive insurance markets. Each Consultative Forum results in a brief note summarising and highlighting key lessons learned for regulators and the wider industry.
Going forward, the Forums will be held on a tri-annual basis. For information on the topic and scheduling of the next Consultative Forum consult our events page. The next Forum is set for Q1 2017 at a location TBD.
