MAPFRE and Sudameris Bank join forces in Paraguay to promote their bancassurance business expansion
MAPFRE PARAGUAY, insurance market leader, has joined forces with Sudameris Bank to expand its presence in the country. The insurance company is focused on continuing its strategy of sustained and profitable growth, with an 18 percent market share and over 79,000 clients. This new partnership follows Sudameris Bank finding room in the strategy to strongly boost its insurance business.
The agreement will allow each company to expand its multi-channel strategy, using its own competitive edge to innovate and reach significantly more clients with a complete portfolio of products and services.
Pierina Pumarol Santos, CEO of MAPFRE PARAGUAY, explains that “this is a strategic agreement that increases MAPFRE’s trade capacity in Paraguay. The Sudameris partnership increases our reach with more than 20 points of sale. It also complements our already powerful agency network, made up of 34 offices, and the other existing distribution channels.”
Jerónimo Nasser, the Sudameris Bank CEO, adds that “by pooling the skills and potential of two leading groups, this great partnership will mean that we can offer our clients—businesses and private individuals alike—the most innovative product offering, digital skills and the best quality service.”
The partnership will continue until June 2035, during which time the bank’s insurance broker will distribute MAPFRE’s insurance and assistance products.
