Microinsurance Intermediaries Part II: Interview Series

MILK, Microinsurance Centre, March 12, 2014

As a follow up to their previous paper on the Business Case for Microinsurance-only Multinational Intermediaries, the MicroInsurance Centre’s MILK Project is issuing a series of interviews with key management figures of multinational microinsurance intermediaries in order to answer some of the outstanding questions raised in this previous paper. This Q&A with Afua Boahemaa Donkor is the second of four interviews, culminating in a final short paper that brings together the lessons learned regarding the business case for microinsurance intermediaries.

In this short interview, MILK and Afua discuss Star Micro's status as a standalone affiliate of the commercial insurance firm Star Group, its relatively quick attainment of profitability, its shift in strategy from individual to group sales, and its use of innovative distribution channels. Star Micro’s financial highlights from 2008-2012 are provided.
