Re-Imagining Offshore Finance

Christopher M. Bruner

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Bermuda, a British Overseas Territory that has long represented a mid-Atlantic waypoint between England and America. Notwithstanding its inauspicious origins, remote location, limited domestic economy, and lack of natural resources, this mid-Atlantic island group has managed to develop one of the world’s largest and most important centers for insurance and risk management. As this chapter explores, Bermuda has cultivated and managed a unique suite of geographic, cultural, economic, and legal characteristics and strengths in order to establish itself as a dominant player in global insurance markets—including primary insurance, reinsurance, and captive insurance, as well as insurance-linked securities.

Keywords:   Bermuda, British Overseas Territory, primary insurance, reinsurance, captive insurance, insurance-linked securities
