MicroInsurance Centre at Milliman
Low-income people across the globe need effective microinsurance and risk management solutions. As a passionate and interdisciplinary team, we partner to develop and advise on creative and valuable solutions covering a full range of risks for low-income populations. We always raise our voices to ensure that low-income people are not left out.
Microinsurance succeeds when insurers and distributors achieve reasonable, sustainable profit with products that provide clear value for low-income customers. These interests must be in balance.
Insurance is one component of a broader risk management approach that is necessary for low-income populations to successfully manage their financial risks. We call our approach Risk Management 360 (RM360).
The most successful microinsurance products are SUAVE: Simple, Understood, Accessible, Valuable, and Efficient. We work with institutions to ensure that each of their products has these critical characteristics.
Products must evolve according to the needs of low-income customers through continuous innovation, improvement, and new offerings.
We transfer skills to our partners and clients so they can drive microinsurance evolution even after our engagement ends.
Founded in 2000 by Michael J. McCord, the MicroInsurance Centre at Milliman (formerly the MicroInsurance Centre, LLC) has helped to drive microinsurance concepts, innovation, and quality. We are proud to be part of a growing sector that today provides financial risk management solutions to tens of millions of people worldwide. Since inception, we have uniquely focused on partnering regulated insurance companies with intermediaries focused on low-income populations to increase the reach and effectiveness of microinsurance and related offerings.
