Pre-conference training - 28 August 2017: Providing insurance responsibly

08:30- 17:00 hours
Host: ILO’ Impact Insurance Facility

Low income households often struggle to understand how insurance products work and how they can benefit from it. In some cases, this is compounded by mis-selling. To serve the market well, insurance providers need to develop a more responsible approach to insurance provision. This one-day pre-conference training programme will explore standards, guidelines and strategies for providing insurance responsibly so that clients derive optimum value while providers enhance the long-term viability of their operations. This training will be delivered by ILO’s Impact Insurance Facility and is designed for insurers, distribution channels and aggregators that provide or are planning to provide insurance to the low-income market and want to make sure they offer their products in a responsible manner to mitigate reputational risk while creating better value for customers.

Pre-conference training participation fee
- Regional and international participants: US$ 60
- Local participants: RWF 29,000
