Hamilton, Bermuda, January 23, 2024: A keynote conversation between Bermuda’s Premier David Burt and Marc Grandisson, CEO, Arch Capital Group Ltd. (Arch) will kick off the 2024 Bermuda Risk Summit, presented by the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA), in partnership with the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR) and EY.
In 2021, Arch celebrated its 20th anniversary as a Bermuda domiciled company, and in 2022, was added to the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, joining a select group of other global Property & Casualty and Reinsurance companies listed on the exchange.
Premier Burt said, “I look forward to representing the Government of Bermuda and taking part in my third annual Bermuda Risk Summit keynote. The Government is proud to support this important event, which highlights Bermuda’s position as the world’s risk capital. It is an opportunity to engage with industry leaders and for potential new market entrants to experience our globally significant risk market first-hand on our shores, which will help them truly appreciate what makes Bermuda a unique risk and insurance solutions domicile.”
Mr. Grandisson said, “I am looking forward to discussing Bermuda’s successes and opportunities with Premier Burt on March 13. One of Bermuda’s core strengths is how government and the private sector work together to solve critical issues, and I thank the BDA and its partners ABIR and EY, for facilitating what I expect to be a fruitful conversation.”
