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.

These are all the students who have been awarded BFIS scholarships since the Foundation started in 1996.  We are pleased to say that over 95% of those who have graduated are working in the insurance sector as underwriters, brokers, claims analysts, cat modelers, actuaries, corporate lawyers, investment analysts, information systems analysts, etc.  The majority are in Bermuda but several are gaining overseas experience in the UK, the USA, Canada and Europe.  Our congratulations to them all!
