Students intern at Ascot Group

Four Bermudian students have been selected for a summer internship programme at Ascot Group, the island-based re/insurer.

Christina Costello, Saladin Beattie, Jude Snelling and Calvina Steede have joined the company’s inaugural internship initiative.

Ian Thompson, chief executive officer of Ascot Bermuda, said: “Ascot is delighted to welcome Jude, Calvina, Christina and Saladin to work with us over the summer.

“As a Bermudian company, we rely on local young people being attracted to a career in re/insurance and this internship programme gives us a fantastic opportunity to widen the future talent pool in our industry.

“We’ve been really impressed with the calibre of the interns this year and their passion. I look forward to running this internship programme in future years and continuing to invest in the young people of Bermuda.”

Ascot said Ms Costello, a graduate of Warwick Academy in 2020, is attending Fordham University School of Business. She is interning with the company’s excess casualty team.

The company said Mr Beattie, who graduated from Warwick Academy this year, will be attending the University of Southampton in September to study economics and finance. He is interning with Ascot’s finance team.

Mr Snelling, also a graduate of Warwick Academy this year, will be attending the University of Exeter in September to study economics and finance, the company said. He is also spending his internship with the finance team.

Ascot said Ms Steede, a sophomore at Dalhousie University, is interning with the company’s healthcare team.
