BFIS ‘Careers In Insurance’ Booklet Released

May 15, 2012

The Bermuda Foundation For Insurance Studies has released a 20-page booklet ‘Careers In Insurance’, which is aimed at helping Bermuda’s students gain the knowledge to consider a career in insurance, then the education and training necessary to enter the industry.

The booklet was designed to be used during the insurance career presentations BFIS makes during the year to Bermuda’s high school students, but it will also be of interest to parents and teachers as well as anyone interested in learning more about Bermuda’s insurance industry.

Divided into easy to read sections, ‘Careers In Insurance’ answers the questions: Why is the insurance industry important to Bermuda? What is insurance? What can and cannot be insured? What is the history of insurance? How did the insurance industry get started in Bermuda? It also explains how the business works, what kind of jobs there are and what it takes to pursue a career in insurance.

Founded in 1996, BFIS is a Bermuda Registered Charity which has awarded almost $4 million in scholarships to date, in addition to running mentoring, networking, intern and career information and career guidance programmes.
