  • Breaking down the protection gap

    The protection gap is not one singular figure of insured and uninsured people, but rather a series of gaps existing across different areas of society, said RMS chief research officer Dr Robert Muir-Wood. "It is not also simply the number of potential insureds who are without coverage. It is deeper than that. You can say that 60% of people do not have insurance, but maybe those people have less risk than the remaining 40%. That is why it is more important to measure the risk that is not covered, rather than just the people who are not covered," he said.

He thus urged both industry and governments alike to pay serious heed to disaster risk management issues and look to tackle them via insurance, capital market solutions and regional collaborations.
