More than a dozen Insurance and Financial Service Providers have joined forces to launch the Puerto Rico International Insurers Association (“PRIIA”). The purpose of the organization is to create a single body that can respond to and advise related parties on insurance issues in Puerto Rico and serve as a single voice in discussions with Puerto Rico’s Office of the Commissioner of Insurance, who regulates the insurance industry.
“As a body representing the professionals in our industry, we will work closely with the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance to develop standardized Codes of Conduct ensuring fair and efficient regulation and supervision for international insurers on the island,” stated board member Erick G. Negrón.
One of the main focuses of the PRIIA is to contribute in the promotion of Puerto Rico as an offshore jurisdiction for International Insurers and to serve as a guide for companies interested in entering the island’s International Center.
“We also plan to develop a series of programs to educate professionals in the domestic insurance sector about the opportunities that will arise within the international insurance sector,” said founding member David Kirkup, COO of Madison Re I.I.
The founding member companies, International Insurers from various parts of the world, were initially brought together under Puerto Rico’s International Insurance Center.
