Microinsurance Aggregators

During the initial round of meetings with microinsurance experts, it was clear that attempting to approach every institution or group offering microinsurance products for their detailed data would be a difficult task, but could be facilitated through the use and participation of microinsurance aggregators (MA). In terms of the database, aggregators are organizations, companies, and other entities that by reason of their institutional objectives and structures have the ability and often the need to collect relevant microinsurance data from multiple sources. 

The aggregators will play an important role in microinsurance data collection as they may
(1) Have significant volumes of data collected over time,
(2) Have a persuasive leverage to get their members / constituents to provide good data for further delivery to the database and or
(3) Play a significant role in directly developing microinsurance markets or work with microinsurance intermediaries thereby has persuasive leverage to get data
