Maksure Risk Solutions expands into Latin America & the Caribbean

UK – Afroglobal insurance and reinsurance broker, Maksure Risk Solutions has appointed veteran broker Amador R. Torreabla as Senior Business Consultant to further strengthen the firms position in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Based in London, Torrealba will join the firm effective 1 December 2022 and report to Edgar Guilindo, Chefe de Divisao, Paises Lusofonos.

Torrealba will be responsible for expanding Maksure’s treaty and facultative presence in Latam and the Caribbean region.

Prior to joining, Torrealba is currently Managing Director: Latam and Iberian Peninsula at EKM Risk Consulting.

He has also held several senior roles at various broking firms including: Oneglobal, Alexander Forbes (Lockton), BMS, Sedgwick (Marsh), and Nicholson Leslie (Aon).

Guilindo said: “We value not only his excellent leadership skills but also his contacts in the Latam and Caribbean and his knowledge of treaty as well as large and complex risks, which combines well with our growth strategy of specialisation and outstanding client service.”

Torreabla added: “This is an excellent time to be joining Maksure Risk Solutions, who are demonstrating significant growth in all thriving emerging markets. The team is extraordinarily entrepreneurial, taking consistent efforts to identify and capitalise on the many and varied opportunities that lie within the region.”

The appointment comes as the firm pushes forward with its Latin America and Caribbean expansion plans and diversifying the book from the largely credit life and health insurance business in the region.

Mr. Simba Makwembere, Managing Director at Maksure Risk Solutions said: “the addition of Amador to our team is a clear demonstration of our commitment to be of service to all emerging markets around the world including Latam and the Caribbean. We are also looking forward to be bringing new capacity to Africa, our primary market, emanating from Iberian Peninsula and other regions.”

Last month, Maksure Risk Solutions opened a new branch office in Parktown, South Africa, to further strengthen its insurance broking solutions to clients in the south of Johannesburg.
