Microfinance is constantly facing significant changes: microfinance products are being developed and modified by MFIs; more and more traditional financial institutions, banks, fintech and other organizations, such as credit unions, guarantee funds and mobile operators are getting involved in microfinance; national authorities are developing and tightening up regulations in order to facilitate and speed up further financial sector development.

It brings on board a unique network of experts and senior level speakers views who shares their experiences and perspectives on current and future trends and challenges in microfinance despite the difficult economic climate and ongoing changes in regulations.

Digital transformation within the insurance distribution sector provides companies with many opportunities as well as challenges.

How can insurers exploit the new era of technology and data to create more distribution channels? How can businesses implement analytics to automate and optimize insurance? How do companies integrate new technologies and modern IT systems into existing policy management and distribution systems in a seamless manner?

Digital technology emerges as an important driver of innovation, competitiveness and growth in microfinance. By leveraging the nearly ubiquitous growth of mobile phones, digitization can reduce cost, increase efficiency and allow financial service providers to reach new clients. By developing an inclusive and sustainable digital financial ecosystem through substantial investment, skilled resources, adequate infrastructure, agile processes, and a conducive regulatory environment, it can foster more widespread adoption and usage.

A report by Deloitte released last month looked at the various opportunities and challenges that the insurance industry will be facing over the next 12 months.

‘2020 insurance outlook’ had six key findings including that insurers should be upgrading not only their technology systems and operating models, but talent capabilities and workplace policies and that the global insurance industry is scrambling to grow and maintain profitability amid maturing markets and volatile economic conditions.
The report says as insurance companies adapt to maturing markets and economic turbulence the ability to integrate technology, talent, and business-model innovation could be vital to their success.  

The most important finding in the last two decades in the world of finance did not come from the world of the rich or the relatively well-off. More important than the hedge fund or the liquid-yield option note was the finding that how the poor can save, can borrow or can even decide to give loans to fellow poor and how can they certainly repay loans. This is the world of microfinance.

Businesses all around the world are involving themselves in corporate social responsibilities expecting these activities to help them in bolstering their profit. The motives may be rational and maybe they are aligned with schemes of betterment of poor, but the poor is still far away from reaping these benefits.
