News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda — In promotion of our status as the risk capital of the world, numerous industry and government leaders from Bermuda journeyed to RISKWORLD, the annual conference of RIMS, the world’s largest risk management community, held this year in Atlanta, Georgia fromApril 30 to May 3.
David Hart, Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) CEO said: “Bermuda had another great business development mission to RIMS. On Monday we held numerous business development meetings with prospective new captives, and toured the RISKWORLD marketplace where we met with many globally significant Bermuda-based companies. On Tuesday, we were fortunate to have the Georgia Chamber of Commerce as our gracious hosts and we met company representatives from the Georgia Department of Economic Development, UPS, Georgia State University, Comprehensive Programme Services, Global Payments, and State Farm Insurance in order to potentially strengthen the economic relationship between Georgia and Bermuda.”
Bermuda’s presence at RIMS was capped off by our signature Bermuda networking reception, including Bermuda’s Premier, David Burt. Over 200 leaders in the insurance sector from around the globe attended the event which featured local Bermudian entertainer DJ Chubb. The BDA extends our sincere thanks to our Bermuda reception partners, Chubb, Butterfield, AIG, Markel, KPMG, and SS&C Technologies, who together underwrote 100 percent of the cost and whose valued contributions made this important annual networking event possible.
“We look forward to returning to RISKWORLD next year in San Diego, CA and in the meantime will continue to support Bermuda’s globally significant risk and insurance solutions industry at the BDA’s second annual Bermuda Climate Summit from June 26-27, and the BDA’s third annual Bermuda Risk Summit in March 2024,” Mr. Hart said.
The Bermuda delegation was led by Minister of Economy & Labour, Jason Hayward, with other delegate members including John Huff, President & CEO, Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR), David Hart, BDA CEO, and Helen Souza, BDA Business Development Manager.
