EVERTON McFarlane, executive director of the Financial Services Commission (FSC), Jamaica, says the need for inclusive insurance is even greater now given heightened exposure to climate risk.

McFarlane, who was keynote speaker at the International Conference on Inclusive Insurance 2022 held in Kingston from 24-28 October 2022, said climate events have increased in occurrence and severity. In the context, levels of insurance coverage in Jamaica were less than optimal, the FSC head said.
