RIMS to host island’s first risk management event

Global risk management society RIMS has partnered with the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) to host an invite-only industry event this summer.

The RIMS Risk Management Academy Bermuda is a three-day thought leadersip programme, which is part of a RIMS series that aims to deepen understanding of key specialist global insurance markets.

Programme topics at Bermuda’s event will include cyber risk, insurance-linked securities, healthcare and transactional liability, insurtech, captive insurance, flood and wildfire risk, and employee benefits.

The programme will also be combined with sessions hosted at offices of major Bermuda-based carriers and brokers with social and networking opportunities.

“RIMS Risk Management Academy Bermuda provides risk professionals with the opportunity to share experiences, strategies and success stories, empowering them to build stronger and more resilient programmes,” RIMS CEO Mary Roth said. “Bermuda and its risk community continue to be invaluable advocates for the profession, and we are proud to bring this event to the country.”

RIMS expects more than two-dozen senior insurance industry executives to come to the island for the event. Invited c-suite guests will represent Fortune 500 companies comprising a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, utilities, transportation, logistics, pharmaceutical, healthcare, energy, business services, telecommunications, and technology. Participating sponsors to date include AIG, Allied World, Aon, AXA XL, Chubb, the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, Liberty Specialty Markets, Marsh, and Willis Towers Watson.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring this high-profile event to Bermuda to showcase our world-class marketplace, global reach and pool of expertise,” BDA CEO Andy Burrows noted. “We know it will help deepen understanding of Bermuda’s unique advantages and help establish new, mutually beneficial relationships.”

Roth introduced the event during the recently held 2019 RIMS annual conference in Boston. The Bermuda event will be held from July 14-17.
