Understanding and addressing global insurance protection gaps

Thursday 12.04.2018 // Newsletter

While insurance protection gaps in the areas of natural catastrophes and pensions are well-researched, cyber risk and healthcare protection shortfalls are harder to quantify and the proportion of their respective gaps is more dramatic than in the field of natural catastrophes. This is one of the findings of a recent report authored by Kai-Uwe Schanz in his capacity as a senior advisor and external research director at The Geneva Association. The study offers an updated quantification of protection gaps in various lines of business. In addition, it puts forward a comparative taxonomy of root causes and remedies, distinguishing between high-, middle- and low-income countries.
