Learning Objectives

The main aim of this course is to allow onlearners to understand the role of Regulatory Law in insurance, reinsurance, private pension plans and capitalization. To this end, the course will explore the social-historic context of the model adopted by Brazil in designing its legal-regulatory framework and the institutions responsible for regulating the insurance market activity. Although regulation and monitoring are not conducted by regulatory agencies but rather by autarchies, a parallel will be drawn with the regulatory agency model so as to identify similarities and differences and possible improvements in the existing system.
