• In Europe and North America, the sophistication of marine insurance has justified the creation of centenary institutions such as the International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI), the American Institute of Marine Underwriters (AIMU), the Inland Marine Underwriters Association (IMUA) and the Canadian Board of Marine Underwriters (CBMU), amongst others. However, Latin America never consolidated an academic and discussion scenario specialized in marine insurance, until now.

    This section is an acknowledgement to the insurance and reinsurance companies which, since 2010 had the vision of creating the Latin American Association of Marine Underwriters – ALSUM, with the purpose of promoting education and the professional growth of all marine underwriters in Latin America.

    Thanks to the effort, ideas and initial capital contributed by this group of companies, ALSUM is a reality at the service of the entire community of professionals involved in the maritime insurance industry in Latin America.

    The thanks to our founders will remain forever.
