Veja o texto que foi publicado junto à sua inclusão, baseado em entrevista feita pela publicação:
"In an exclusive interview on how Brazil has been adapting its local (re)insurance rules to new international standards of solvency, Santos told Latam IR that "SUSEP has been working for a long time to get our (re)insurance market supervision methods recognized internationally, as well as adapting more advanced and stricter criteria.”
The lawyer praised the Brazilian regulator efforts since “having the European Union recognizing that the Brazilian solvency regime follows the same standards as the European regulation is a very positive sign, as it recognizes the Brazilian regulatory system’s quality.”
Santos has almost 20 years of experience and currently advises clients on regulatory, contractual and M&A matters."
