Head Life & Health Business Brazil and Southern Cone, Swiss Re
Andre Azevedo started his professional career in the early 1990s in an electric sector pension fund in Rio de Janeiro. A few years later, he moved to Sao Paulo to work in a branch of the insurer Life.
From 1998 to 2001, Mr Azevedo worked for one of the leading reinsurance companies, after which he joined Swiss Re as a Client Manager Life & Health Brazil, a position he held until 2005.
In January 2006, Mr Azevedo was relocated to Swiss Re Americas in Armonk, New York, as Life & Health Pricing Actuary for all of Latin America. Given the recent opening of the Brazilian reinsurance market, he returned to Brazil in early 2009, still as a Pricing Actuary of Life & Health for the local market.
Mr Azevedo graduated in Actuarial Science in 1993 from the UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro).
