Here you  can find some of the interviews  I gave or opinion articles I was asked to write over my 25-year career. They focus on agriculture, agricultural insurance/reinsurance/microinsurance (including dedicated interviews and articles on the matters of aquaculture and livestock insurance and reinsurance), microinsurance, sustainable economic development, and sales, and marketing techniques to enhance the client-centricity of the insurance sector in multiple low, lower-middle, and upper-middle-income markets.

I gave this interview to the Ukrainian Insurance Club in 2018 (page 16). In it, I defend the need for the Ukrainian insurance market to be more client-centric and less focused on price as a way to recruit and retain more clients. I defended these ideas on several roundtables and workshops organized by the IFC (World Bank Group) of which I was a part of in Kyiv. Click on the PDF to read the original document.

​Opinion

This is my first article of opinion. I wrote it in 1997. It was published together with other 3 articles from well-known agriculture personalities in Portugal.
In this article, I reflect and call up several questions on the need for the Universities in Portugal to have a deeper connection with the outer society and prepare their students for the job market with pertinent skills required for the country to develop itself.

​Livestock

Article of opinion on the need to insure livestock, in particular, dairy animals against disease and other perils (pages 15 and 16). We did this insurance cover for ABLN, a Portuguese association dedicated to the improve productivity and quality of dairy animals in the Northern region of Portugal. This insurance was done in collaboration with Portuguese insurance company CA Seguros with whom we made a strategic partnership as they were specialised in agriculture.
