The Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers’ [ABIR] opened the annual Bermuda Foundation of Insurance Studies [BFIS] ‘Intro-to-Insurance’ summer intern program with a 2-hour introductory seminar on the Bermuda [re]insurance market.

ABIR Senior Vice President, Deputy Director and Corporate Secretary Leila Madeiros, who led the workshop commented: “We continue to present Bermuda’s [re]insurance centre as a unique site in contemporary risk taking. Programs like the BFIS Intro-to-Insurance help expose young people to the opportunities here, something that the market widely collaborates on.”

    BFIS Intern Program – great success stores over the years. I have one question. Why are overseas University students now being included? Is that not reducing the number of local Bermudian interns?
