Despite geopolitical and domestic threats to lives and livelihoods, the Executive Director of the Financial Services Division (FSC) says there is still a low level of insurance saturation among Jamaicans.

He was speaking at the recently concluded, international conference on inclusive insurance in Kingston. Only a small percentage of the local population has life insurance and an even smaller percentage has health insurance. This, despite having to contend with the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic and myriad emerging viruses and deadly diseases.
