AM Best will host a suite at the event, as well as distribute a recent Best’s Market Segment Report on Bolivia’s insurance market, in which it assigned the market a stable market segment outlook due to its healthy growth, its insurers’ robust solvency ratios and a sufficient appetite from reinsurers.
