    The Recent Financial Turmoil and its Impact on Latin America

    Andrés Langebaek RuedaDirector Ejecutivo de Estudios Económicos, Grupo Bolívar

    The world economy went through major changes following the U.S financial crisis, with Latin American in particular seeing large capital inflows causing an increase in commodity prices, very low interest rates, and strengthened growth in private consumption. Yet now, with the recent rebound in growth in the United States, there has been a change in these conditions and so this session will address the challenges facing the Latin American region and its insurance companies in this new global economy.

    Get Inspired

    Joseph W. Jordan, Author, Consultant, Speaker
    In recent years the insurance industry has been adversely affected by the "Information Age", thereby making many agents too clinical and left brain analytical. To overcome this, Jordan’s presentation will discuss ways in which to help insurance professionals become reinspired by reminding them of the intrinsic value they bring to their clients. His presentation will demonstrate how the economic downturn can actually be used in our favor, as people need us now more than ever. Finally, he will explain the importance of reminding agents that their jobs allow them to live a "Significant Life" due to the positive effect they have on others on a daily basis.

    The Longevity Revolution – Nothing is as it was Before

     Alexandre Kalache, MD, PhD, President, International Longevity Centre
    The average life expectancy has increased nearly 30 years over the past century, with some countries even surpassing that average. For example, Brazil has experienced one of the most impressive life expectancy increases, moving from a life expectancy of 43 years old in 1945 to a life expectancy of 75 years old for those born today. The majority of these extra years are being lived out to their fullest and cannot simply be considered as ‘old age’. Therefore, this presentation will discuss the implications of those extra years of life and identify how individuals and societies should prepare themselves for this `longevity revolution`.
