Execs from XL and Chubb to speak at Bermuda forum at RIMS


Executives from companies including XL Catlin and Chubb Bermuda will join representatives from the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) and the Association of Bermuda Insurers & Reinsurers (ABIR) at a special executive forum hosted by the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) during this month’s RIMS Annual Conference & Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas.

The panel discussion, titled “Bermuda: The World’s Risk Capital,” will focus on trends and issues impacting global insurance and reinsurance companies in Bermuda, as well as the industry’s outlook for the rest of 2018. Moderated by BDA chair Paul Scope, chairman, Willis Bermuda, the panel includes Jeremy Cox, CEO, BMA; Cathy Duffy, senior vice president, underwriting manager, XL Catlin; Judy Gonsalves, chief underwriting officer, Chubb Bermuda; and John Huff, president & chief executive ABIR.

The panel will complement another panel discussion that will focus on the captive insurance sector. That event is called “Bermuda’s Captive Insurance Solution,” and will examine Bermuda’s role in the innovative industry that helps global businesses manage complex risks through self-insurance.

“We’ve held numerous forums of this kind across the US, Canada and Latin America over the past three years, but this is the first time we’ve staged an event like this when we’re attending RIMS. We’re excited to showcase Bermuda’s world-class talent to such a focused industry audience there,” said the BDA’s Jereme Ramsay, business development manager for the risk sector.

“We value our industry partners’ commitment of time, effort and expertise to help increase awareness of the risk-transfer solutions Bermuda can offer. We look forward to welcoming brokers, risk managers and financial executives to a very informative event.”

Scope added: “RIMS is the ideal environment for the Bermuda message. Risk-management business is our bedrock, and many of our clients will be in San Antonio at the RIMS 2018 gathering. Our panel will showcase our underwriting expertise, our advocacy, and our sensible regulation.”
