NEW YORK, May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Madeira Global, a leading analytics firm dedicated to environmental, social and governance (ESG) research and reporting, announced the release of a new white paper on the topic of impact measurement and insurance at the 2017 Milken Global Conference in Los Angeles.
With the recent rise of the microinsurance industry, an enhanced understanding of its impact and measurement methodologies has taken shape. This report explores microinsurance as a valuable risk-mitigation tool for low-income communities, and extends insights from this sector to the impact potential of traditional insurance products.
"As an independent ESG reporting partner, we frequently encounter business models and asset classes that require an innovative approach to impact measurement. While insurance products may be diverse and complex, we certainly see potential for quantifying their impact," [says CEO Christina Alfonso-Ercan.] "Insurance products allow beneficiaries to engage in risk taking behavior that is necessary for economic growth. This white paper, stemming from our work with clients in this sector, addresses a little-recognized opportunity to understand the social impact of a traditional business model in new and exciting ways."
