Impact Insurance Forum 2019

Impact Insurance Forum 2019

Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka Hotel
Dhaka, Bangladesh - November 5, 2019

The 2019 edition of the Impact Insurance Forum will be jointly organized by the ILO’s Impact Insurance Facility and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and will focus on the topic “Insurance for women: Opportunities for insurers”.

Globally, the socioeconomic status of women and their power to make decisions and influence household spending is increasing. Women now tend to earn more and to have better control of their assets, which significantly impact their ability to help their families and communities and to contribute to economic growth. Yet, women’s ability to mitigate risks remains low, and can even be worsened by the impacts of climate change. How can the insurance industry play a role in addressing the financial protection and risk mitigation needs of women?

The Forum will present the business case for why insurers should address the women’s market, how the risks women face differ from those of other segments and share the most effective strategies for engaging with and selling insurance to women above and beyond traditional distribution channels. Do not miss the chance to join us and our partners in sharing lessons and experiences and presenting ideas for better serving the women’s market the future.
