Montevideo, Uruguay – 26-27 September 2013


This two-day seminar examined the monitoring and transparency of insurance markets in Latin America through the provision of sound insurance statistics and indicators. It brought together government, supervisory agency and central bank officials, industry practitioners, academics, statistical experts and representatives of international organisations. Participants shared their experiences with the goal of improving the relevance and quality of insurance statistics, regionally and globally, and enhancing market monitoring and transparency.

Discussions focused on:

  • international efforts to enhance the monitoring and transparency of the insurance sector, and how these efforts can help to assess the financial strength and performance of the insurance industry
  • developments and recent trends in insurance markets in Latin America
  • country experiences in insurance market monitoring, research and statistics-gathering
  • participation of Latin American countries in the OECD Global Insurance Statistics project and a stocktaking and comparative assessment of insurance statistics available in public domains in selected Latin American countries
  • other issues and challenges, such as analytical tools, stress testing, and the implications of solvency reform for data collection and transparency.

The seminar was organised by the Association of Latin American Insurance Supervisors (Asociación de Supervisores de Seguros de América Latina, ASSAL) and the OECD with the support of the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS) and the Central Bank of Uruguay (Banco Central de Uruguay, BCU).
