“We have seen a significant increase in demand for specialized advisory services in the insurance market. With BMS’s extensive insurance sector experience and global platform, as well as Jurado Mata’s local resources, we are well placed to meet this growing demand,” commented Juan Antonio Mata, president of Jurado Mata.
