In 2017, ILS Bermuda, announced a new education initiative that will provide scholarships for five Bermudian students to work towards an Associate in General Insurance (AINS) designation through the Bermuda Insurance Institute’s (BII) ‘Career Pathways’ program.


The BII’s Career Pathways program is designed to provide identified high school and Bermuda College students with knowledge of a key segment of Bermuda’s economy. These ILS Bermuda sponsored scholarships will afford the selected Bermuda College students with an opportunity to earn an internationally recognised insurance designation as well as work shadow opportunities in the industry through partnership with ILS Bermuda member companies. The BII is Bermuda’s only comprehensive Risk Institute providing assessments, insurance and reinsurance courses, relevant seminars, conferences, and awards and recognition events.


The Career Pathways program consists of 4 stages; an Overview Seminar for students, the BII Insurance Induction Program, courses towards the Associate in General Insurance (AINS) designation and work shadow opportunities.

In addition to their financial contribution towards the Scholarships, ILS Bermuda offers students complimentary admission to the annual Bermuda Convergence event held at the Hamilton Princess.

ILS Bermuda Education workstream leader, Tim Tetlow:

“We believe this is an excellent opportunity to engage and educate young Bermudians in the niche segment of Insurance-Linked Securities and the alternative reinsurance space. With access to so many incredible speakers, there is a wealth of information from industry specialists in their fields that is great exposure for the students.”
