Our next Expert Forum will look into funeral insurance and whether it can be used as a gateway for emerging consumers to purchasing other forms of insurance. It will focus on key questions:

• What is the uptake of funeral insurance around the world?
• Why do people - including in wealthier countries - buy funeral insurance?
• Are purchases in emerging markets driven by different factors?
• In the end, can these funeral products be used as an entry point to other types of insurance products and services for low- and lower middle-income families?
