BDA to host panel at virtual Rims conference

The Bermuda Business Development Agency will host a virtual panel discussion on Bermuda’s liability market and a Bermuda networking break as part of Rims, the risk management society annual conference.

The BDA is a diamond sponsor of this year’s event, Rims Live, which takes place April 19–30.

The panel, “Changes and Trends in Liability Risk,” will be held on April 22 from 2–3pm.

The session will feature Judy Gonsalves, division president at Chubb Bermuda; Saadia Savory, vice-president and head of casualty Bermuda at Aspen Insurance; and Kirsten Beasley, interim head, Willis Towers Watson Bermuda.

Moderated by Jasmine DeSilva, the BDA’s business development manager for risk and insurance solutions, the panel will explore the current state of the liability market, emerging trends, and the Bermuda market’s response.

Roland Andy Burrows, CEO of the BDA, said: “Rims is the largest risk event of the year – it is a staple in the calendar and the Bermuda market has proudly attended for more than 35 years.

“The BDA and Bermuda are extensively committed to supporting and growing the risk management industry here, and participating in the Rims annual conference is a key part of that.

“Bermuda continues to work hard to remain at the forefront of commercial trends and drives innovation forward as one of the world’s most important insurance and reinsurance hubs.”

The BDA will host a virtual booth where conference delegates can learn more about the market, view videos, and engage in live chat. Delegates can also schedule video meetings.

The organisation said it will also be bringing Bermuda to the attendees during the “Take a Break in Bermuda” networking event on April 20 at 4.30pm, providing an opportunity to hear from David Burt, the Premier; Curtis Dickinson, the Minister of Finance; and Mr Burrows, who will all be speaking from the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.

Also from the Hamilton Princess, Ms DeSilva and Andrew Holmes, Bermuda brand director for Goslings, will make rum swizzle cocktail in the late Sheila Gosling’s Maytag vintage washing machine from 1964 – the same appliance she used to prepare drinks in the 1960s, the BDA said.

The BDA will also announce the winner of an all-expenses paid trip to Bermuda, including a stay at the Hamilton Princess.
