XS Global Announces Key Appointment in Brazil

We are pleased to announce Rodrigo Granetto’s appointment as Long Tail Lines Director for XS Brazil.  

With a bachelor’s degree in law and an MBA in Insurance and Reinsurance, Granetto initiated his career in banking. He worked for four years at Bradesco and Itau before transitioning to the insurance market, where he has accumulated over 15 years of experience. Throughout his career he has held various significant roles, including Head of Healthcare for Latam at Dual, where he established the Brazil operation, and Director of Medmal for Latam at ACE/Chubb. He has also worked at well-known companies such as Zurich and Everest.

“XS Global has been doing brilliant work in Latin America and other international markets and has earned a strong reputation in Brazil. I’m excited to join XS Global and the talented team of professionals to start working on a future launch of what would be XS Brazil”, says Rodrigo Granetto. 

With the introduction of SUSEP 431, which has been regulating MGAs in Brazil since the end of 2021, and the Brazilian long-tail market demonstrating consistent growth and development each year, the timing couldn’t be more opportune for XSG to start operating locally.

“By hiring a Long Tail Director, we are preparing the way for the future opening of XS Brazil. For us, Brazil holds substantial significance. We have a profound comprehension of the dynamics, the players, and how the market operates. Now it is time for the execution”, explains Jorge Luis Cazar, XS Global CEO.
