The winners of the Reactions Fifth Latin America Re/Insurance Awards were unveiled at a glamourous event at Miami’s prestigious Ritz Carlton resort in Coconut Grove in early May.

Following a packed day of discussions during the Reactions and Euromoney Seminars hosted Sixth Annual Latin American Insurance and Reinsurance Forum, attendees filled out the Ballroom at the Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove to see which individuals and companies would be handed this year’s awards.

It was a mixed group of winners this year reflecting the changes that have taken place within the Latin America region over the previous 12 months.

Marsh & McLennan Companies enjoyed a broking one-two, with Marsh named Latin America Broker of the Year and Guy Carpenter coming out on top of the Reinsurance Broker of the Year category.

Elsewhere, Chubb was handed the award for Latin America Insurer of the Year, with Everest Re awarded Latin America Reinsurer of the Year.

For the individual awards, Liberty Mutual’s Pablo Barahona and Fernando Cámbara were named Insurance CEO of the Year and Lifetime Achievement respectively.

Latin America Reinsurance CEO of the Year was given to Urs Baertschi of Swiss Re, while Tony Phillips of Willis Re was handed the award for Reinsurance Broking CEO of the Year.

Aon Risk Solutions’ Fernando Pereira was awarded the prize of Insurance Broking CEO of the Year and the Latin America Influential Individual of the Year award went to Recaredo Arias of Mexican re/insurance industry trade body AMIS.
