LIMRA and LOMA to Host Inaugural Latin American Bancassurance Seminar

WINDSOR, Conn., Feb. 1, 2013-LIMRA and LOMA will host a two-day seminar focused on bancassurance in Latin America on March 7-8, 2013, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

"While bancassurance holds a large share of the life insurance market in Brazil, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador, other countries, like Mexico and Colombia, are still establishing this distribution channel," said Gary Aluise, senior vice president and managing director, LIMRA and LOMA International Services. "Growing interest in investment-oriented products and an expanding middle market offer greater opportunities for the bank channel throughout Latin America.  This seminar is designed to help our members understand the challenges that surround establishing a bancassurance channel and the ways in which to make it successful."

The 2013 Latin American Bancassurance Seminar will offer attendees the latest research and global trends in distribution, product development and marketing.  Senior insurance executives and top practitioners will share best bancassurance practices for companies operating in Latin America, including:

  • Effective bancassurance distribution programs
  • Choosing the right business model for your organization
  • Building strong relationships between banks and insurers
  • Successful bancassurance product development
  • The future of bancassurance in Latin America

More than 100 industry professionals are expected to attend this year's seminar, learning strategies and best practices to boost their company's bancassurance channel performance and continue building a more profitable program to succeed in the years ahead.
