Microinsurance Programs

As part of Toronto Centre’s mission to improve access to financial services, we are pleased to introduce new programs in microinsurance, which examine ways to improve access to insurance through effective regulation and supervision.

Access to insurance is an important strategy for poverty reduction. The inability to manage the risk of vulnerability caused by the sudden death of a family member, illness, or loss of income or property can perpetuate poverty. Financial markets – and insurance services in particular – can play an important role in mitigating welfare losses resulting from the occurrence of such events. Use of insurance also provides a catalyst for economic development in low-income communities.

Our programs examine topics that help practicing supervisors of microinsurance sectors including:

  • How sound supervisory principles can be applied in a manner that encourages inclusiveness in financial markets
  • The differences between insurance and microinsurance sectors
  • The importance of sound corporate governance

A full list of our training topics can be found here.

Like all Toronto Centre programs, our microinsurance programs are highly interactive and practical, using case studies, group discussions, and breakout sessions to foster debate and effectively transfer knowledge between presenters and also amongst participants. Our courses are taught by expert program leaders who have often experienced the cases they present. They are recognized and respected internationally for their knowledge, experience, and leadership abilities.
