From: Bernews, September 10, 2017
A new research study conducted by PriceWaterhouseCoopers for the Bermuda Insurance Management Association [BIMA] has found the captive insurance industry contributes an estimated $174 million every year to the island’s economy, the Bermuda Business Development Agency [BDA] said.
“The sector directly employs at least 557 people in Bermuda, the study indicated, and generates minimum fee income of some $139 million every year,” the BDA said.
“An additional $35 million is contributed annually by captives to the Bermuda government, regulators, local suppliers and commercial property owners, as well as hotels and other business hospitality vendors.
