Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers [BILTIR] is providing young Bermudians with the opportunity to take part in a maths tutoring programme at CedarBridge Academy.

A spokesperson said, “Twelve companies and 23 volunteers are helping with the tutoring programme. The sessions will be held every two weeks until April 26 and the programme is intended to assist students preparing for IGCSE examinations beginning in May. Matt McPhail [Fortitude Re] and Lorita Su [EY] are the organisers of the programme, with the key aim being to improve the maths skills of young Bermudians.”

“We thank BILTIR for their ongoing support of our students,” said Neville Zuill, Director at CedarBridge Academy. “Their volunteer tutors not only share their math expertise, they share a love of math and real-life examples of how math can evolve into a career.”

“Beyond supporting the students in their studies, this gives us the opportunity to connect with students and give them insights into future careers in the Bermuda insurance industry that will utilize math; answering the age-old question students have of ‘when will I ever use this in real life?’” said Mr. McPhail.

The spokesperson said, “Participating companies are: Fortitude Re, F&G Life Re, Legal & General, EY, Resolution Re, Agam, Aspida Re, Monument Re, North End Re, Argus, Athora, Wilton Re, and 777 Re.

“BILTIR represents 56 life re/insurers and 21 associate members in Bermuda who provide life and annuity products and employ more than 1000 people on the island.”
