Tannock said: “Bermuda is a dynamic and solution-oriented international business jurisdiction that has fostered a culture based on innovation and calculated risk.
“The Island’s strong, prudent yet pragmatic regulatory framework and speed to market are key attractions for business and have helped make Bermuda a global financial centre and hub for high-quality intellectual capital.”
He added: “The Bermuda market’s ability and willingness to execute quickly to put capital to work to provide solutions to emerging risk issues is uniquely situated. In addition to this, one of Bermuda’s most significant strengths is its adaptability.
“In the face of new risks, the Island’s international business community has consistently demonstrated that it can evolve and respond quickly to meet those challenges and the ever-changing needs of its clients.
“I am looking forward to a thought-provoking discussion with Ms. Wright who is well known and respected in the commercial insurance industry.”
