The Microinsurance Network believes that the exchange of microinsurance knowledge and expertise is the driving force behind the effective and sustainable development of the microinsurance sector. To this end, a major initiative of the Microinsurance Network is to organise content-driven networking events as platforms to foster the exchange of knowledge and expertise, facilitate peer to peer learning, and drive the development of the sector whilst balancing both profitability and client value.
Counting over 300 microinsurance experts in its membership, the Network draws from a wide and diverse pool of expertise to provide its members with insider knowledge on key emerging topics and facilitate dialogue on important and cutting edge issues in microinsurance.
The Working Groups of the Network have been renamed expert groups. The new name marks a change in the focus of the groups from output-oriented groups to a greater focus on sharing of know-how, networking and fostering of in-depth discussions on emerging topics.
The expert groups of the Network are composed of Network members who are all microinsurance professionals and experts in their field. Non-members are invited to join the debates on an expertise basis. Expert groups are formed and convened on a project or events basis.
