The acceleration of infrastructure projects in the region has opened the door for specialty lines insurers, such as Liberty International Underwriters (LIU), which provides coverage throughout Latin America for all phases of infrastructure projects. Thais Kirschner, senior vice president of operations for Latin America at LIU talks to Intelligent Insurer about the company’s services throughout the region.
Is an acceleration of infrastructure projects – especially in countries like Brazil – creating opportunities for specialty lines insurers?
Yes, there are sizable infrastructure opportunities throughout Latin America. The opportunity for specialty line insurance, particularly in the energy sector, is in demand due to the new hydro electrical, geo thermal, wind and solar plants. LIU’s team of experienced energy underwriters, risk engineers and claims professionals monitor trends in the region and position the company so it is able to provide the best products to support these complex projects.
