WINDSOR, Conn., Sept. 13, 2012 – On Oct. 31, 2012, more than 150 Latin American life insurance executives will convene in Chicago to attend the 41st Annual Latin American Conference, hosted by LIMRA and LOMA.

"Latin American countries have enjoyed stronger economic growth than other markets throughout the world during the recession but because of a variety of factors this has not necessarily translated into strong industry growth," noted Gary Aluise, senior vice president and managing director LIMRA/LOMA International Operations. "With a growing middle class and exploding senior population, people are more cognizant they will need help protecting their families from financial risks they face. This conference will explore ways our industry can educate consumers about our products, find more effective distribution and address obstacles that still exist."

The conference theme: Keeping Your Business Ahead of the Curve, focuses on developing the business strategies to capitalize on the strong economic growth within the Latin American markets. The conference provides the most up-to-date research and industry knowledge on market trends, consumer research and recent regulatory activity. During the conference, industry leaders and top practitioners will share best practices on product development, distribution, risk management and operations. It also offers attendees the chance to learn from industry experts, as well as from their colleagues in an open, collaborative forum.

The two-day (event also features a CEO panel, with participants who will share their thoughts on the Latin American market and their vision of where it is headed in the future. The panel, moderated by Alejandro Massa, executive director, AVIRA, includes: Dr. Gonzalo Alberto Pérez, president, Suramericana S.A.; Marco Antonio Rossi, director-president, Grupo Bradesco de Seguros e Previdência; and Fernando Siña, vice chairman, Compañía de Seguros Corp Vida S.A.
