Minister of Finance to speak on Bermuda:Re+ILS and BDA webinar


The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) has joined forces with Bermuda:Re+ILS and its sister publication Intelligent Insurer to host a webinar to discuss the island’s international business sector through and beyond the global pandemic. 

Curtis Dickinson, Bermuda’s Minister of Finance, and Craig Swan, deputy chief executive officer of the Bermuda Monetary Authority. 

They will be joined by representatives from the industry, including: Kathleen Reardon, chief executive officer at Hamilton Re; Patrick Tannock, managing director at AXA XL, chief executive of Insurance XL Bermuda and chairman of the Association of Bermuda International Companies (ABIC); Sarah Demerling, partner at Walkers Bermuda and chair and executive committee member of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) Bermuda; and Greg Wojciechowski, president and chief executive of the Bermuda Stock Exchange and board member of the BDA.

The event, which is free to view, is scheduled for 11 am (ADT) on July 22, 2020 and will last approximately 90 minutes. Panelists will discuss the jurisdiction’s response to COVID-19 and offer insights into likely future trends. 

The Minister will focus on the island’s evidence-based response to COVID-19, including the government’s decision to designate financial services as essential.

 Roland Andy Burrows, chief executive of the BDA, said: “As we now move into the final phase of reopening our economy, this webinar is an excellent opportunity to continue to update our partners on the steps we have taken, the ongoing challenges as we see them and the emerging economic opportunities, including Bermuda’s historic role in helping to address newly understood risks.” 

Wyn Jenkins, managing editor of Bermuda Re+ILS and Intelligent Insurer, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the BDA and Bermuda to host a dynamic discussion and debate around the important role Bermuda and its economy play in the stability and resilience of many other sectors and markets globally, especially, of course, risk transfer.”
