  • Model assessment of public–private partnership flood insurance systems:
           an empirical study of Japan
    • Abstract: The public–private partnership (or PPP) system is widely hailed as an effective approach to flood insurance. PPP effectiveness can be empirically demonstrated through an analytic framework based on model assessment, which we apply to Japan as an illustrative case study. We first introduce the widely-observed market failure phenomenon in the catastrophe insurance sector and how PPP systems may serve to avert this failure. We then proceed to select three candidate systems and model them respectively. Subsequently, we employ empirical data and Monte Carlo simulations to evaluate suitability for Japan’s case via three perspectives. The results identified the market-oriented system as the economically-optimal choice. It should be noted, however, that the assessment is dependent on the priorities of each party and market-negotiated results. We find this methodology to be suitable for identifying the most adequate PPP system and invite policymakers to consider its use when implementing their own systems.

  • Examining the effects of agricultural income insurance on farmers in
           Burkina Faso
    • Abstract: In this paper, we examine the effectiveness of income insurance as a tool to increase the financial resilience of smallholder farmers when faced with joint yield and price risks. We applied the optimisation method to national and regional data on maize yields and prices in Burkina Faso during the period 1995 to 2015. Our results show that income insurance generates significant risk reduction at a lower cost than other programmes such as index insurance or warrantage.

  • Transparency and insurance professionals: a study of Swedish insurance
           practice attitudes and future development
    • Abstract: The insurance industry is being challenged by increased adoption of automated decision-making. AI advances could conceivably automate everything: marketing, customer service, underwriting and claims management alike. However, such automation challenges consumer trust, as there is considerable public and scholarly debate over the ‘black box’ character of many algorithms. Insurance being a business of trust, this suggests a dilemma. One suggested solution involves adopting algorithms in a transparent manner. This article reports a study of how Swedish insurers deal with this dilemma, based on (i) eight interviews with insurance professionals representing four companies with a joint market share of 45–50% of the Swedish property insurance market and (ii) a questionnaire answered by 71 professionals in a Swedish insurance company. The results show that while transparency is seen as potentially valuable, most Swedish insurers do not use it to gain a competitive advantage or identify clear limits to transparency and are not using AI extensively.

  • Response of Mexican life and non-life insurers to the low interest rate
           environment
    • Abstract: The purpose of this research is to examine whether insurers have improved their economic performance through efficiency as a reaction to the prolonged period of low interest rates. The results of an analysis of 22 years of data, using a two-stage data envelopment analysis approach (DEA), show that there is an inverse relationship between efficiency and interest rate. The non-life insurance group had a superior level of efficiency compared with that of the life insurance group. It seems that life insurance companies, to some extent, transferred their inefficiency to customers to maintain their solvency. Additionally, this research shows that companies with substantial market power and bancassurance exceeded the performance of the rest of the industry.

  • The influence of past experience on farmers’ preferences for hog
           insurance products: a natural experiment and choice experiment in China
    • Abstract: Hog insurance is essential for the safety of pork production in developing countries. Although livestock insurance has been found to have positive impacts on farmers’ welfare and agricultural production, it has not lived up to its full potential. In this study, a natural experiment combined with a choice experiment is conducted among hog farms in four townships in China to explore the influence of past experience with hog insurance on farmers’ preferences and willingness to pay (WTP) for hog insurance attributes. Employing the random parameter logit model, we find robust evidence that farmers have heterogeneous preferences for insurance attributes and attach great importance to the involvement of government in insurance operation. Furthermore, farmers’ past insurance experience plays a vital role in their demand for hog insurance and significantly changes their WTP for insurance attributes.

  • The impact of artificial intelligence along the insurance value chain and
           on the insurability of risks
    • Abstract: Based on a data set of 91 papers and 22 industry studies, we analyse the impact of artificial intelligence on the insurance sector using Porter’s (1985) value chain and Berliner’s (1982) insurability criteria. Additionally, we present future research directions, from both the academic and practitioner points of view. The results illustrate that both cost efficiencies and new revenue streams can be realised, as the insurance business model will shift from loss compensation to loss prediction and prevention. Moreover, we identify two possible developments with respect to the insurability of risks. The first is that the application of artificial intelligence by insurance companies might allow for a more accurate prediction of loss probabilities, thus reducing one of the industry’s most inherent problems, namely asymmetric information. The second development is that artificial intelligence might change the risk landscape significantly by transforming some risks from low-severity/high-frequency to high-severity/low-frequency. This requires insurance companies to rethink traditional insurance coverage and design adequate insurance products.

  • Directors and officers liability insurance and default risk
    • Abstract: This paper investigates the effects of directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance on default risk. Using unique panel data of non-financial listed firms in Taiwan from 2010 to 2017, the empirical results indicate that D&O insurance exerts a significantly positive influence on firms' expected default frequency (EDF), controlling for the endogeneity of D&O insurance coverage and fixed effects. Further analyses reveal that such an effect exists particularly among firms with a high D&O insurance coverage ratio. Firms with D&O insurance have higher default risk than those without. Our findings differ from those in the existing literature by showing that D&O insurance coverage reflects firms' EDF and by capturing more insight on firms' EDF (market value, stock return volatility and firm asset volatility). The evidence indicates that D&O insurance may serve as a real-time, publicly observable signal of default risk for insurers and investors, enabling better contracting and risk management.

  • Competition reduces profitability: the case of the Indian life
           microinsurance industry
    • Abstract: We aim to understand the effect of market and firm-level concentration on return on equity in the Indian life microinsurance industry (LMI). This research is one of the first attempts to empirically test structure–performance issues in India. Using data on 14 companies that remained active in the LMI market during 2009–2019, we demonstrate that firms in the Indian LMI market scored better on profitability measures whenever competitive pressures were lower. We calculate Herfindahl–Hirschman concentration indexes (HHI), market share and entropy measures and use panel data techniques to find a positive effect of concentration and a negative effect of market share. We conclude that LMI-specialised insurers in India perform better than diversified insurers.

  • Dynamic information asymmetry in micro health insurance: implications for
           sustainability
    • Abstract: Micro health insurance is an important channel for financing health expenditure for low-income people, yet the supply of such programmes lags behind demand because many of them become unsustainable. Using individual-level dynamic data from a micro health insurance programme in Pakistan, this study tests for the existence of information asymmetry (adverse selection and moral hazard) using a series of non-parametric tests so that insurers and policymakers can better understand the underlying reasons that lead to dynamic claim patterns before taking appropriate actions to improve the sustainability of these programmes. The study’s contribution lies in constructing an appropriate method and novel test statistics to detect information asymmetry using dynamic claim data in a multivariate recurrent event model framework. The results show that adverse selection exists widely for a variety of disease types and that moral hazard is only significant for chronic diseases. Furthermore, pregnancy-related claims demonstrate an increasing trend of adverse selection that needs to be addressed with priority. The analysis provides insight into the sustainable provision of micro health insurance to low-income people in developing regions.

  • Government interventions in microinsurance: evidence from China
    • Abstract: The microinsurance market suffers from severe market failures; thus, government interventions are increasingly used to stimulate its functioning. Our article evaluates, from a law and economics perspective, whether these interventions are effective in increasing access to insurance without inducing moral hazard and adverse selection. We then use this framework to evaluate typical types of government interventions in the Chinese microinsurance market (subsidisation, simplification, use of group policy and established distribution channels). Using practical cases, we further identify solutions to remedy the market frictions induced by government interventions. We find that government interventions are only effective under certain conditions: (1) stable and smartly designed subsidies are provided or innovative market practices are subsidised; (2) insurance policies are easy to understand; (3) product distributors are properly trained or licensed; (4) group policies can be renewed.

  • The role of distribution channels in market discipline for the life
           insurance industry
    • Abstract: This paper investigates the role of distribution channels in market discipline for the life insurance industry as marketing intermediaries help transmit information between insurers and consumers. Based on life insurance data in Taiwan during 2004–2013, the paper analyses the relationship between insurance demand and insurers’ enterprise risk considering the effect of the distribution channel. The empirical results suggest that the distribution channel is an influential factor in insurance demand. The results also show that insurance demand and choice of distribution channel in Taiwan are responsive to insurers’ enterprise risk. These findings suggest that insurance commissioners should consider the role of marketing intermediaries when market discipline is adopted as an approach for surveillance of the insurance market.

  • Addressing insurance of data breach cyber risks in the catastrophe
           framework
    • Abstract: Considering data breaches as a man-made catastrophe helps clarify the actuarial need for multiple levels of analysis—going beyond claims-driven loss statistics alone—and calls for specific advances in both data and models. The prominent human element and the dynamic, networked and multi-type nature of cyber risk are perhaps what makes it uniquely challenging. Complementary top-down statistical and bottom-up analytical approaches are discussed. Focusing on data breach severity, we exploit open data for events at organisations in the U.S. We show that this extremely heavy-tailed risk is worsening for external attacker ‘hack’ events. Writing in Q2 of 2018, the median predicted number of ids breached in the U.S. due to hacking in the last 6 months of 2018 was 0.5 billion, with a 5% chance that the figure exceeds 7 billion, doubling the historical total. ‘Fortunately’, the total breach in that period turned out to be near the median.

  • The effect of microinsurance on the insurance market: evidence from Taiwan
    • Abstract: Microinsurance is one of the fastest growing new markets for the billions at the bottom of the financial pyramid – low-income customers previously precluded from traditional insurance. Will insurers really benefit from serving a larger amount of customers' This paper attempts to provide answers by examining the performance of life insurers in Taiwan. Our results show that microinsurance dummy variables are negatively related to efficiency scores and premium income in both OLS and Tobit models. Providing microinsurance products will increase competition between micro and traditional insurance products and reduce market demand for traditional insurance. The efficiency and premium income of traditional insurers will decrease if the price of microinsurance is regulated at marginal cost.

  • The impact of peer effects and economic policy-related uncertainty on U.S.
           life insurers' investment decisions
    • Abstract: This paper examines the impact of peer evaluation and economic policy-related uncertainty on insurers’ investment decisions in the U.S. life insurance industry. Using data from 567 U.S. life insurers, we find that U.S. life insurers’ investment decisions are significantly positively associated with peer insurers’ investment decisions, consistent with the learning peer channel hypothesis. In addition, we find that when the country’s economic policy-related uncertainty is higher, insurance firms are more likely to lower their investment, which supports the wait-and-see hypothesis. We further investigate the effect of government crisis interventions on life insurer investment, considering policy-related uncertainty. The results indicate that liquidity support and nationalisation policies encourage insurers’ investment decisions. We also perform alternative checks to address endogeneity concerns. The results mostly support our earlier findings. However, the results on the sensitivity of investment to peer effects and policy-related uncertainty vary. The results are robust to controls for various attributes, such as insurer characteristics, peer insurer characteristics, economic policy-related uncertainty and government crisis interventions.

  • Efficiency, productivity and competitiveness of the Malaysian insurance
           sector: an analysis of risk-based capital regulation
    • Abstract: Risk-based capital is used to specify minimum capital requirements for insurers, but it can also cause insurers to bear higher risk if the actual risk of an asset is improperly assessed. This study investigates the efficiency, productivity and competitiveness of the Malaysian insurance industry. The usefulness of regulatory policies will be studied, with particular focus on the risk-based capital framework. This study includes all insurance firms operating in Malaysia between 2000 and 2017. Data envelopment analysis, Malmquist productivity index and Panzar–Rosse methodologies are employed. The findings indicate that life insurers are more efficient and competitive than general insurers. There is a deterioration in the efficiency and productivity of conventional insurers following implementation of risk-based capital requirements. The risk-based capital for Takaful framework, however, improves Takaful insurers’ efficiency and productivity. The findings have implications for business strategy development, such as the level of restrictions on insurance operations. General insurers are recommended to employ technology-enhancing pricing and claims systems to increase efficiency.

  • Information sources and participation in the Chinese insurance market:
           knowledge as a mediator
    • Abstract: This study analyses the role of insurance knowledge in mediating between various important information sources and insurance market participation using a large and representative national data set from China. We find that all information sources have a significantly positive effect on market participation. However, the insurance knowledge variable demonstrates significantly positive mediation effects only when the predictors are mass media and community outreach. The government can take advantage of disseminating such information via effective media identified in this paper, thereby achieving knowledge enhancement and maintaining the sustainability of the industry. Moreover, we see that the serious problem of agent misselling is also found in China, which has a devastating effect on insurers’ and agents’ credibility, making any information that they provide unreliable in the eyes of the public.

  • Under pressure: investment behaviour of insurers under different financial
           and regulatory conditions
    • Abstract: Firms that have losses are expected to sell tax-free securities and replace them with taxable securities since they can no longer benefit from tax savings. However, after the most recent financial crisis, firms’ decisions to rebalance their investment portfolios may have led to additional losses during a period of stressed financial performance and increased insurance regulation. This study examines portfolio allocation behaviour in the property and casualty insurance industry. The results show that investment limitations imposed by insurance regulators can inhibit desired investment allocation post the financial crisis.
