Bermuda’s Risk Transfer Hall of Fame
5 Inspirational Leaders
Bermuda:Re+ILS brings you the fourth instalment of the Bermuda Risk Transfer Hall of Fame. In every issue we profile five individuals who have contributed significantly to Bermuda’s journey as a global risk transfer hub.
“Any individual can make such a difference if they have the drive and innovative skills.”
In the October 2019 issue of Bermuda:Re+ILS, we launched Bermuda’s Risk Transfer Hall of Fame. In every issue we profile five individuals who have contributed significantly to Bermuda’s journey as a global risk transfer hub.
The launch marked the Bermuda Monetary Authority’s 50th birthday—and the fact that it is also some five decades since Fred Reiss started his pioneering work on Bermuda that led to the formation of the first captive and the start of what has become a global industry and key part of the worldwide re/insurance sector.
In those 50 years many other executives have contributed to Bermuda’s growth and development, following in the footsteps of Reiss in helping drive forward innovation while making huge contributions that have resulted in Bermuda’s becoming the world capital of risk transfer.
That is why this publication has created Bermuda’s Risk Transfer Hall of Fame.
In each issue, we will celebrate the achievements of five individuals who have contributed to this journey through Bermuda’s history. They may be still working, long retired, or sadly no longer with us. If they have contributed significantly to Bermuda’s journey, we will consider recognising them.
The individuals we choose will be selected based on a quarterly poll of our readers, which will encourage them to suggest names they believe are worthy of recognition, and the thoughts and judgements of our editorial panel. We will profile five new names in every issue going forward.
This issue features the fourth batch of executives, featuring five more industry legends.
But this is an ongoing process. If you wish to suggest someone you believe should be recognised for his or her contribution to Bermuda’s risk transfer market, look out for our poll or simply get in touch along with a couple of lines on your reasons.
We hope the individuals profiled on the following pages inspire readers and remind everyone that any individual can make such a difference if they have the drive and innovative skills. We look forward to hearing your future nominations.
