Bermuda highlights strengths at London Forum
The economic, political and cultural ties between Bermuda, the United Kingdom and the United States set the scene for the Bermuda Executive Forum, held at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London today.
At the event ‘Navigating Disruption for Positive Change’, Robert Wood Johnson, the US ambassador to the UK, the UK’s Sir Nicolas Soames, former conservative Member of Parliament, and David Burt, the Premier, touched on geopolitics, technology, digital disinformation, the need for lifetime education and how the solid relationship between the three countries becomes even more important during the current climate of change.
“We had a fascinating panel with our friends from the UK and the US, demonstrating the importance of the relationship and the value Bermuda has to offer the global marketplace, including our ability to adapt quickly to change and keep pace with the times,” Mr Burt said.
“This event provides an excellent platform for us to speak directly with prospective businesses and investors based in London and to spread the word about Bermuda. For those who are serious about raising capital in a well-regulated and well-respected jurisdiction, and deploying it in the most efficient manner possible, Bermuda is the place for you.”
The opening conversation was moderated by Fiona Luck, non-executive director for the Lloyd’s of London Franchise Board and a Bermuda re/insurance industry expert.
The forum was the seventh in a series hosted by the Bermuda Business Development Agency in cities of strategic importance to the island, including New York, Toronto and Miami.
