Premier promotes island at insurtech conference
David Burt, the Premier, has extolled the virtues of the island on the main stage at the InsurTech Connect conference in Las Vegas.
Mr Burt took part in a keynote conversation with Stephen Weinstein, past chairman of the Bermuda Business Development Agency, entitled “Bermuda: Bridging Risk Capital Leadership with a Blooming Innovation and Tech Ecosystem”.
Mr Burt said: “It is the perfect time for Bermuda to be returning to InsurTech Connect, not only for the opportunity to remind attendees that Bermuda remains the world’s risk capital from the main stage, but also for the multiple business development opportunities brought about by having another in-person presence at the world’s largest insurtech event.
“We look forward to continuing to share the advantages of our blue-chip jurisdiction, including Bermuda’s regulatory excellence, abundance of human capital and spirit of innovation.”
Korrin Lightbourne, senior business development co-ordinator with the Bermuda Business Development Agency also attended.
The annual conference, presented by McKinsey and Company, said it attracts 9,000 industry attendees from around the world.
The BDA said its attendance at ITC comes on the heels of its recent fifth annual Bermuda Tech Summit and a business development mission to London where it held meetings with leading global capital allocators, wealth managers and tech companies and incubators to discuss Bermuda’s aspirations to develop and grow its technology, high net worth services and climate risk solutions/asset management industries.
The organisation said that work aligns with the “Local and International Business Retention” and “Business Attraction and Investment Promotion” strategic priorities outlined in Bermuda’s Economic Development Strategy.
