Aon Chairman to Deliver Keynote Address at BDA Risk Summit | News

HAMILTON, Bermuda–(BUSINESS WIRE)–February 22, 2022–

Aon Chairman Eric Andersen will speak at the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) inaugural Bermuda Risk Summit to be held March 14-16, 2022.

The Bermuda Risk Summit is Bermuda’s first major in-person risk event since 2019 and features CEOs from some of the world’s largest P&C (re)insurers among its growing list of international speakers.

“Threats facing businesses today are multifaceted, complex and interconnected, and all require better data and insights because every decision can have a profound impact,” Andersen said. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, the outlook on risk has changed as new forms of volatility have emerged, highlighting horizontal risks more clearly and underscoring the need to innovate on behalf of clients. I look forward to participating in this event, which will bring together industry leaders and experts to discuss the most pressing issues facing our customers, and the solutions to address those needs.

David Hart, CEO of BDA, said, “We are delighted that the President of global professional services firm Aon, Eric Andersen, has accepted our invitation to deliver a keynote address at our Bermuda Risk Summit. We encourage anyone interested in learning how Bermuda can help close their protection gap ahead of the upcoming mid-year policy renewal season to register to attend. Additionally, I am pleased to announce that Aon is joining us as our third and final Diamond Sponsor, alongside the Association of Bermuda Insurers & Reinsurers (ABIR) and EY.
