It is not a secret, but I would like everyone to know or feel the real emotion of a person who receives an insurance claim, right after suffering an irreparable loss from a family member.

Expected a lot of growth and opportunities. In Brazil there is a huge market yet to be explored. Year after year the Brazilian insurance sector is growing and there is a blue ocean ahead.
