There is little secret in the fact that Puerto Rico has faced some daunting issues over the past year, from Hurricane Irma to the island's debt crisis. Both these circumstances can cause anxiety in the insurance market and are situations that need to be addressed. The good news is that despite these circumstances, Puerto Rico is up and running and open for business like never before. Further, Puerto Rico's insurance regulator and, more specifically, its International Insurance Center were not impacted and continue to provide constant and reliable regulatory oversight and assistance. For those involved in the insurance industry, the opportunities it affords for business and Puerto Rico itself means that you will play an increasingly important role in the economic vitality and recovery of the island.
