The Insurance and Reinsurance Department of Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge is holding a 60 minute complimentary webinar entitled "¿Seguro? Opportunities and Risks for (Re)Insurers in Latin America in 2010 and Beyond" on Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 10:00 am (EST).

Amid solid growth rates in the face of global economic crisis, international interest in the Latin American insurance and reinsurance markets is at an all-time high. Just as most Latin American markets have better weathered the downturn, so they are expected to rebound more quickly. As always, however, significant pitfalls remain for the unwary market entrant. As home, local and international privacy and anti-corruption laws combine with local regulatory schemes to complicate market entry and competition, local knowledge and experience combined with regional and global expertise becomes invaluable.

John P. Dearie, Jr. and M. Machua Millett of Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge's Insurance and Reinsurance Department will present the latest in our series of industry webinars. They will discuss current conditions, trends and predictions for the Latin American (re)insurance markets and risks posed to international (re)insurers by local and international laws and regulatory schemes.
