The ICMIF 2013 Annual LARG (Latin American Reinsurance Group) Meeting will take place this year in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic from Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 June hosted by Cooperativa Nacional de Seguros, Coop-Seguros Inc.
The meeting brings LARG members together to discuss issues such as underwriting, claims, microinsurance, strategic planning and catastrophe reinsurance as well as providing the opportunity to discuss reinsurance treaty renewals for 2014 with their reinsurers and reinsurance broker Willis Re.
The agenda will include presentations by top level speakers; most of whom will be representatives from the group’s reinsurers. During the meeting delegates will also be reviewing their strategy to monitor the group’s direction for the next three years.
The LARG is a unique group of ICMIF members and was formed in order to allow the members to purchase reinsurance collectively. One of the key additional benefits of being a member of the LARG group is access to technical and reinsurance training which is provided for the members by the group’s coordinator, Martha Julia de Marroquín. In the report below Martha Julia gives an account of the aims of the training and talks about achievements from the 2012 programme.
The ICMIFTV video below was produced after the 2012 meeting in Honduras and includes interviews with a number of LARG members. The video will provide valuable information to existing and potential LARG members and also to reinsurers who may be interested in working with the group.
