Selling Insurance in a Multi-cultural Market
By 2020, rapid-growth markets are expected to account for 50 percent of the global GDP when measured at purchasing power parity, 38 percent of the world consumer spending, and 55 percent of the world fixed capital investment.
Although the insurance business in mature markets is growing very slowly or is in some cases saturated, there are encouraging signs of growth in emerging markets such as China, India, central and eastern Europe, and Brazil. These markets are characterized by an increase in the wealth of the middle class, a low rate of penetration of insurance products and services, with incentives from government to introduce insurance products to people in rural areas.
There are four key areas to be looked at for success in the emerging market. They are: meeting unique consumer needs due to diversity in cultures, operational excellence, regulatory compliance, and simplifying and streamlining business models.

Wooing Customers with a Multi-lingual e-Commerce Platform
As per a Credit Suisse presentation at the World Economic Forum 2015 at Davos, e-commerce as a share of total retail sales may soon be greater in emerging markets than in developed countries. This demand is driven by expanding incomes and rising Internet access.
Increased use of technology in emerging markets, especially mobile penetration, is today opening up a whole new market for e-tailers globally. Retailers ignoring the huge business potential of this segment, which is multi-cultural and multi-ethnic, and for whom English is not necessarily the primary language of communication or business, will be doing so at their own peril.
