Re Insurance Professionals Miami McLarens III

The first Latin American Claims (re) Insurance Forum has proved to be a magnificent opportunity for networking and discussion of matters of substantial emerging interest, currently shaping the (re)insurance reality of the region. The first forum has managed to attract key influential players of a region with more global appeal than ever. In the light of Miami’s progressing vast exposure upon the region, this event has become a must go since its birth for those occupied in the making of this fascinating realm of the Latin America (re)insurance markets.


David entered the insurance profession in London in 1999 with a major Spanish insurance company. Experience was gained in their Underwriting and Claims departments. He then joined a major international adjusting firm in London, working in their home office liaison department and handling multiple interim overseas assignments before moving to Latin America in 2008. David has particular expertise and field experience in Energy (electricity utility sector) Construction, leisure industry, Automotive Industry, Mining, Contractors Plant and Equipment, Terrorism, in addition to CAT events and large fire losses.
