Date and time



About this event


This hour-long live webinar is a follow-up project of the SRA Technical Sub-Committee to help raise awareness on the possible use of Parametric Risk Transfer solutions to help narrow the protection gap in the emerging markets in ASEAN and the rest of Asia, some regions of which are particularly susceptible to natural disasters and where perhaps traditional indemnity-based reinsurance methods may be less efficient.

The webinar will feature opening remarks from the Executive Director of the Financial Markets Development Department of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), followed by a brief overview of the Parametric Risk Transfer white paper presented by the Convenor of SRA’s Technical Sub-Committee. This will be followed by a panel discussion comprising subject matter experts from New Zealand, London and Singapore, who will share their collective experience in structuring Parametric Risk Transfer solutions in various markets, and consider possible use cases to help plug emerging Asia’s huge insurance protection gap.


Insurers, reinsurers, brokers, regulators and risk managers from the ASEAN and Asian markets who are interested in learning more about the potential use cases for Parametric Risk Transfer reinsurance solutions to help narrow the protection gap in their markets.
