WINDSOR, Conn., October 1, 2018 – LIMRA announced today that world-renowned comedian Murilo Gun will be the opening keynote speaker at the 2018 LIMRA LOMA Latin American Conference. The event will be held on October 31 – November 1, 2018 in New York City. 

The conference will focus on key industry issues in Latin America and gather leaders in the life and health insurance industries to one place. Attendees will gain insights on the latest strategic transformation trends impacting the industry, including InsurTech, IFRS17, behavioral economics, customer expectations and profitable microinsurance solutions.
