Pedro Geoffroy, president of ASES, said that "... last year's growth is the highest since 2014. These results were achieved thanks to the impulse of a particular item: Accident and health insurance."

Regarding the performance of sales of accident and health insurance, Geoffroy added that "... This category includes medical expenses and personal accidents. The growth is attributed to a greater contracting of this type of insurance by natural persons, as well as those carried out by small and medium enterprises.
