The (re)insurance sector in Latin America has great growth potential, according to Michaela Koller, director general of Insurance Europe. Nevertheless, she thinks that protectionist practices in some countries can hinder this development. Ms Koller says that countries need to recognise the important role that open (re)insurance markets play in recovery after natural catastrophes, and how the entrance of new actors has in many cases increased the dynamism of markets by introducing new practices.
