Read up on annuities and microinsurance

This page in:

We've just launched two new reading lists:

  • Microinsurance. Credit isn't the only financial service to go micro. Poor people face more risks than most of us, with more devastating consequences. Microinsurance products help them handle extreme weather, illness, and loss of livestock. It can also be a crucial way to keep people from falling into poverty in the first place.
  • Annuities. With the greying of the population in many parts of the world, lots of people approaching retirement age. Thanks to reformed pension systems, many will receive a lump sum instead of monthly payments. Annuities solve the problem by offering a lifetime steady stream of income.

See Pienso for more microinsurance links.
