• COVID-19, what other news did we miss?

    Posted in Cyber Insurance blog, Global Network Blog, MicroInsurance blog on Mar 19, 2020

    Not since the untimely death of the Princess of Wales, Lady Diana, can I think of an event that was globally discussed and touched a majority.

Most other events can be measured in a few news cycles, this event will be measured in months. But could we have planned for this? Do we have the ability to predict these local and global disasters? It seems we can, but do we do anything about it? It seems not and with our eyes firmly on COVID-19 events what else are we all missing?

But is this the right approach?

  • Earthquakes, how much warning?

    Posted in InsurTech blog, MicroInsurance blog on Jan 07, 2020

  • Convincing young people to work in insurance

    Posted in Blog, InsurTech blog, MicroInsurance blog on Jan 05, 2020

    Is there any 'community' in insurance? When many industries are all trying to help those in need or to raise awareness of good causes, why does insurance fail at this - the one product designed to help and support communities in their time of need?

    Oh! - Darling, you got to let me know - Should I stay or should I go? - If you say that you are mine - I'll be here till the end of time - So you got to let me know - Should I stay or should I go? The Clash, not quite the soundtrack people will be listening to with Dorian expected to make landfall on Tuesday. But the sentiment will be well known to Florida residents as they are engaged in a complex, high-stakes set of financial, logistical and psychological calculations of whether to stay or go.
