“We know that the Latin American region will be one of the best prospects globally for growth and development in the coming decades. We already have a presence in all the countries in the Mercosur trading bloc. These markets are very important, in

that they permit us to expand the frontiers of our business. It’s been a very positive experience. In Uruguay and Paraguay we

are already up there with the main private sector insurers in each country and in Brazil, where we’ve been operating since 2013 in the provinces to the south of the country, the development here has been absolutely favourable" says Néstor Abatidaga. Sancor Seguros is now gradually planning to expand across the other regions of Brazil. According to Néstor Brazil is the main thrust of his firm’s growth plans."
