26 June 2023 - 27 June 2023
As the world seeks ways to confront our planet’s biggest challenge, climate change, Bermuda is uniquely positioned to be a global leader in providing climate risk strategies and solutions.
The second annual Bermuda Climate Summit, presented by the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA), in partnership with KBRA, will showcase not just the seriousness of the threat, but also the attributes and innovative spirit Bermuda can bring to the table to help partners across to world rise to meet this global crisis.
Bermuda is already the world’s risk capital and is now looking to establish itself as a world capital for climate risk finance, the most adjacent vertical to our key market strengths: re/insurance, Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS), and financial services expertise. Bermuda not only has many of the world’s leading experts on weather-related catastrophes already based here in our globally significant property catastrophe reinsurance market, but we also have a financial services regulator, in the form of the Bermuda Monetary Authority, which understands the importance of climate concerns.
You should attend this event to connect with senior policymakers, leading scientists, NGO-heads, and business leaders, who will all be sharing their unique insights and solutions for the world’s biggest challenge, climate change.
Guests are encouraged to bring their families and stay the weekend to enjoy and all that the island has to offer including walking nature tours, Twizzy tours, golf, deep-sea fishing, or cave adventures. There is so much to discover!
