Six local students have completed a weeklong intensive internship programme sponsored by the Bermuda operations of insurance broker and reinsurance broker Marsh and Guy Carpenter.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the firms’ programme was revamped to provide more virtual learning options. In addition to learning online about commercial re/insurance, including property, healthcare, professional liability, cyber, and captives, students also had the opportunity to meet executives on site and learn about insurance underwriters at global speciality insurer MS Amlin.

Chris Reeves, managing director of Marsh, said: “We are committed to supporting the next generation of insurance and reinsurance professionals. By pivoting our internship programme to provide a mix of traditional and virtual options, we were actually able to demonstrate the way the insurance industry now collaborates.”

Isabella Boonstra, one of the interns, said: “My week with Marsh, Guy Carpenter, and MS Amlin has taught me so much about the re/insurance world. I did not have much exposure to the industry prior, but I am walking away from this experience much more knowledgeable.”

Ahria Simons added: “I have learnt that whether one chooses to be a broker or an underwriter is completely up to personal preference and that both disciplines are equally important. I hope Marsh and Guy Carpenter continue to implement these taster events in the future as I found it very effective.”

Jennifer Correia said: “During this student experience I was able to learn more about the insurance and reinsurance industry as a whole, as well as the specifics within it. I really appreciated having the opportunity to talk to colleagues, as they were able to give me a personal insight on what a regular day is for them and what they deal with on a day-to-day basis.”

Other students participating in the internship programme were Etreu Adonai, Jahmai Small, and Josai Williams.
