Rosa has over 18 years’ experience in the Mexican market, her specialism is agribusiness and catastrophic perils. She reports to José Ernesto Ospina, Latam Regional Manager in Colombia and will work closely with the underwriting team in Europe and Colombia.
The Mexico reinsurance team will provide property, casualty and specialty treaty reinsurance solutions, which will be underwritten by Liberty Mutual Re in Europe.
Miguel Martinez, Head of Business Development at Liberty Mutual Re said: “Mexico is the largest reinsurance market in Latin America. Liberty Mutual Re did not have local representation for treaty reinsurance business until now, and establishing a local operation within Lloyd’s shows our commitment to our Mexican clients and the importance we place on this market. It will add to our presence in Brazil and Colombia in the region. We have known Rosa for a number of years and are delighted that she has joined LM Re to be our local representative for the Mexican and Central American Market.”
The launch of the LM Re business in Mexico is another key step in the strategy to grow its global business and demonstrates the importance of Latam to the business.
