THE ROLE OF INSURANCE IN THE ECONOMY
• A collective ‘safety net’ and a
lever of economic and social
development
• A key enabler and transmission
mechanism for economic activity
• A catalyst in the financial and
investment flows needed for
sustainable development

KEY CHALLENGE
AN INCREASING LEVEL OF SYSTEMIC RISK
Driven by the growing
interconnectedness
between the physical,
economic and social
environments in which
we live
Source: WEF Global Risk report 2012
Many people still do not have access to the collective ‘safety net’
and are therefore exposed to the increasing level of risk

Do we sit passively and watch the world unfold for us?
OR
Do we act proactively to become shapers of risks by:
• Understanding these risks
• Sharing this knowledge
• Developing strategic responses
• Driving or contributing towards implementation
