Voice 79

Voice is ICMIF’s quarterly magazine, containing stories and news embracing the sector as well as in-depth interviews with chief executives.

From this issue:

Aris Alip has recently taken over as Chair of ICMIF’s Development Committee.  He is passionate about advocating the role which mutual insurers in general and ICMIF in particular can play here: “I want to get across the message that microinsurance is a real opportunity for ICMIF to promote,” he says.  “Microinsurance is serving the underprivileged, the bottom of the pyramid.”  And delivering microinsurance the mutual way brings direct ownership to the poor in a way which commercial insurers cannot ever offer.  

… The market, he points out, is enormous: microinsurance could potentially make a real difference to more than two billion people around the world.   “We really have to push for microinsurance.  I think this can really bring ICMIF into the limelight.”
