American Conference Institute’s 2nd International Forum on

BRAZILIAN REINSURANCE

Thursday, September 17, 2009

About

Be a part of the premier international forum on the legal, business, and operational opportunities and challenges of the Brazilian reinsurance market

Brazil, with the largest insurance market in Latin America and one of the largest economies in the world, presents incredible growth potential for insurers and reinsurers. With the opening of its reinsurance market last year, Brazil promises to soon be the reinsurance hub of Latin America. However, the abundant opportunities in this new market do not come without challenges. Foreign reinsurers interested in positioning themselves for success in Brazil must have a strategy for overcoming the legal and operational hurdles presented by this market.

American Conference Institute’s 2nd International Forum on Brazilian Reinsurance will provide you with the tools and insights that you need to thrive in this new market. Our unparalleled faculty of in-house experts and leading outside counsel will provide you with key information and strategic advice on:

  • Evaluating the cooperative agreements, fronting arrangements, and other business strategies foreign reinsurers have used to minimize regulatory impediments
  • Assessing IRB-Brasil Re’s evolution from monopoly to market participant and its current role in the market
  • Determining whether and where to establish a Brazilian office
  • Reevaluating the Brazilian reinsurance market in light of the global economic downturn
  • Deciding whether to partner with a local reinsurer and selecting a partner that will best meet your business objectives
  • Acquiring, training, and retaining qualified personnel in a cost-effective manner
  • Implementing appropriate underwriting procedures for the Brazilian market
