Meeting a Need

Established by leaders of Bermuda's insurance industry in 1996, BFIS is tasked with ensuring that Bermudian students are provided with opportunities to attain the education and training necessary for careers in Bermuda's insurance industry. This is being achieved through scholarships, mentoring, internships and career guidance.

The Trustees of the Rhondelle Tankard Memorial Fund at the Aon group of companies in Bermuda have chosen to support the BFIS Mentoring Program in memory of their colleague Rhondelle.

It is particularly appropriate to join these two actions in that Rhondelle was the first Bermudian to join AON's Reinsurance Division in Bermuda and due to her continuing achievements and education was on a short secondment to our World Trade Centre office in New York at the time of the 9/11 tragedy.

We will never forget Rhondelle and in that regard, this is a fine addition to the legacy she brought to AON's operations in Bermuda.
