Financial Engineering (BIFE 2014)

In recent years, on “understanding catastrophe”, “disaster loss assessment”, “disaster risk
financing and insurance” and other topics, extensive and in-depth studies have been carried out.
While the disaster insurance is generally well-versed in the issues, the purpose of this workshop is
to bring researchers and practitioners together in order to set up visions on latest progress, and to
conduct this discussion to draw out additional and even innovative perspectives.

Microfinance serves the disadvantaged whom traditional banks are unwilling to serve or
difficult for them to reach. It is the provision of relevant and affordable financial services such as
deposits, loans, payment services, money transfer, insurance etc. to poor and low income
households and their micro enterprises that don’t have access to the services offered by traditional
financial institutions. Lots of microfinance organizations (MFOs) are working in disaster-prone
countries, and they have become active players in post-disaster situations. Similarly, micro
insurance plays a vital role, and it contributes to disaster management together with microfinance.
Furthermore, there are opportunities for micro insurance to integrate with microfinance.
