Brazilian brokers name Swiss Re Best International Reinsurer

September 2011 - Brazilian insurance brokers elected Swiss Re as the Best International Reinsurer in a survey conducted by Apólice Magazine together with consulting firm CVA Solution.

"It is very gratifying to receive recognition from brokers after all the work we have been doing in the last year,” says Swiss Re Brazil Region Head Rolf Steiner.

Moreover, while receiving the award, João Dias, Operations Manager of Swiss Re Brazilian office, announced that "weeks ago Swiss Re submitted an application to the Superintendence of Private Insurance (SUSEP) for a local reinsurance registration, which the company sees as the next step in its continued dedication to its clients and the Brazilian insurance market."

About 2,000 brokers participated in the survey and elected, in addition to Swiss Re, the most prominent companies in various fields that comprise the area, such as insurance, reinsurance, pension, annuity, health and dental plans.

Developed by Apólice Magazine, the Best of Insurance Award aims at encouraging, promoting and recognizing the work of individuals and companies that contribute to the development of the insurance sector and have an outstanding performance every year.
