Interns start the summer at Hamilton Re


Bermuda-based Hamilton Re is hosting two interns during the summer of 2017, saying that this part of its ongoing commitment to engage Bermudians in the insurance and reinsurance industry.

Rachel Soares and Tomisha Goater joined Hamilton Re on May 29 and June 2, respectively, for a 10-week programme during which they’ll rotate through most of the organisation’s departments.

According to Hamilton Re they will work under the direction of vice president, risk & analytics Susan Smith, to receive a multi-faceted experience that includes risk modeling and underwriting.

“I’ve been so impressed with how Rachel and Tomisha have adapted to the fast-paced culture we have at Hamilton Re,” said Smith. “In addition to their strong work ethic, they’re showing initiative and they’re focused. It’s a pleasure to have them with us this summer.”

Soares recently completed a bachelor of arts with honours in international business at the University of West England in Bristol, in the UK. She is currently pursuing an associate in general insurance at the Bermuda Insurance Institute and takes up a permanent position as an investment analyst at a local investment firm in September.

Goater is studying for a bachelor of arts in economics with a double minor in business administration and communication studies at the University of Florida after completing the International Baccalaureate with United World College in Costa Rica. After graduation next year, she is considering pursuing a master’s degree.

The interns have just finished working with Hamilton Re’s risk & analytics as well as the property D&F insurance teams, assisting with data cleansing and learning the modeling process.

Over the next few weeks they will move on to information systems, then operations and finally back to property D&F insurance. Their internship at Hamilton Re closes out with a presentation to CEO Kathleen Reardon in August.
