A year of challenges and opportunities in Latin America

At this stage, we all know that 2020 has been and still is an unusual and challenging year for all economic sectors around the globe. In Latin America the scenario is no different, even if our COVID-19 curve is trending down while in the northern hemisphere the contamination levels are rising.

Nevertheless, every crisis can also offer opportunities and we can see them in the insurance industry; while we are suffering losses there is continued demand for business protection. More than ever, proximity with customers and a deep understanding of their needs has once again proven essential for our company demanding that we reinvent ourselves to be true to our purpose to make the world more resilient.

Regulatory changes

Beyond the market conditions changing, we have other key factors impacting the Latin American insurance landscape.

Regulatory changes, although necessary, are also demanding agility and rigor from companies, with several discussions pushing the industry to a new era. In Brazil, for example, SUSEP (the insurance market regulator in the country) has put into public consultation a resolution that should substantially change the large risk segment providing wording flexibility which will surely change the relationship dynamics between carriers, brokers, and customers.

New products and continuous development

Although we cannot control external factors, we continue with the certainty that placing the customer at the center of our decisions is the only possible way to create competitive advantage and increase service levels in a market where solutions are increasingly commoditized.

We have been active on this front in 2020, working on several fronts to deliver the best services and products to our customers, always focusing on the relevance to customer needs, state-of-the-art technology, and deep local knowledge with global expertise.
