Bermuda - International Insurance Markets

Program Dates
Sunday, May 2, 2021 to Sunday, May 9, 2021
Description

Travel to Bermuda is the experiential portion of the spring semester course, FIN 4800 International Insurance Markets.  We will spend one week in Bermuda at the end of the spring semester. Bermuda's economy is based on tourism and financial services. It is the largest domicile for captive insurers and home to some of the the world's largest reinsurance companies.  During our time in Bermuda we will visit reinsurers, brokers, regulators, and historical sites. Most of our time will be in Hamilton, but the first few days will be at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS). BIOS is a research and educational institution focusing on our oceans and the changing climate.  While at BIOS we will learn from experts in climate change and risk modeling. 

NOTE: The course will hopefully include travel to Bermuda. Given the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 and travel restrictions, there is no guarantee we will actually be able to travel. If travel is not allowed, we will participate in virtual events during the semester.
