Company: HDFC International Life and Re
The insurance sector in the Middle East is on the brink of change and Sameer Yogishwar is ready for the challenges and opportunities that come with it. As the CEO of HDFC International Life and Re, a subsidiary of India’s largest private insurance company, Yogishwar brings fresh insights from a market whose insurance sector has itself undergone a transformation in recent years, set against a backdrop of a large consumer base, lack of sufficient product knowledge, and changing legislation. His personable approach and technical expertise has seen him rise through the ranks. Under his leadership, HDFC International Life and Re was established in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) in 2016 with an aim to expand the group’s footprint in the GCC.
