About the event

The Department for International Trade has the pleasure to invite you to Colombia: A Growth Market for Insurance. This is a great opportunity to get to know the Colombia’s economy and the huge potential of its insurance sector.

With a population of 48.9 million people, Colombia is the third largest Latin American country by population and the fourth largest by GDP. It is a country characterised by its strategic location as a regional hub for Latin America, a fast-growing middle class and increasing foreign direct investment.

In 2018, Colombia became a member of the OECD. It has had an average economic growth of over 4% over the last decade, and the insurance sector is growing faster than Colombia’s GDP with a 9% growth rate and income over USD$9 billion in 2017.

Some of the topics that will be discussed throughout the session will be:

  • general overview of the Colombian economy
  • perspectives and trends of the insurance market in Colombia
  • Colombia’s infrastructure programme, an opportunity for the UK insurance industry
  • InsureTech and its possibilities in the Colombian market
  • Agro-insurance: a market niche yet to be explored

Date: Monday, June 17, 2019. 08:30am – 02:00pm - includes networking lunch

Place: Lloyds - One Lime Street, London EC3M 7HA - Hooper Room.
